Amelia Chiropractic Clinic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Since we are part of the chiropractic profession, Amelia Chiropractic Clinic inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Fernandina Beach back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic designs individualized Fernandina Beach chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. The addition of mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain frequently keeps a sufferer from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Fernandina Beach chiropractor at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can choose a mindful approach to coping with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is reported to help. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who utlilized a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based therapy had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers found that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. Use is better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many do not seek it out as they may. One curious note about those who do seek help resulted from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which positively influenced them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who suffers with a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid seeking help with depression related to Fernandina Beach back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Amelia Chiropractic Clinic offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Fernandina Beach back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
