Pflugerville Wellness Center Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we are a member of the chiropractic profession, Pflugerville Wellness Center adds “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our Pflugerville back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Pflugerville Wellness Center designs individualized Pflugerville chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, nutrition, and home exercise. The addition of mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful and supported.


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 Pflugerville chiropractor at Pflugerville Wellness Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient 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 discovered that mindfulness-based therapy had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers uncovererd that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It’s 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 interesting 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 has a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Pflugerville back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. Pflugerville Wellness Center offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical part of spine pain and encourages our Pflugerville back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
