Malverne Health & Wellness 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’re a member of the chiropractic profession, Malverne Health & Wellness adds “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our Malverne back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Malverne Health & Wellness designs individualized Malverne chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that incorporate chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. The addition of mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is many times helpful and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain often keeps a sufferer from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Malverne chiropractor at Malverne Health & Wellness on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to dealing with the mind and its struggle with the pain and associated depression and/or varying levels of sadness is found to help. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who added a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers found that mindfulness-based treatment had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers discovered that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has received lately. Many do not seek it out as they could. One interesting note about those who do seek help resulted from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which positively motivated them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who suffers with a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Malverne back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. Malverne Health & Wellness offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Malverne back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
