Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we’re part of the chiropractic profession, Moriarty Chiropractic inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Nashua back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Moriarty Chiropractic designs individualized Nashua 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. Adding mindfulness practices to such spine care practices is often beneficial and encouraged.
Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Nashua chiropractor at Moriarty Chiropractic 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 associated depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is reported to help. In a study of mindfulness-based therapy specifically for sufferers with lumbar disc herniation related back pain, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based therapy 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. Use is better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many don’t 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 supportively 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 pursuing assistance with depression related to Nashua back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Moriarty Chiropractic offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical part of spine pain and encourages our Nashua back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
