Cross Chiropractic Center Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Cross Chiropractic Center inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Sandy Springs back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Cross Chiropractic Center creates individualized Sandy Springs 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 beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently keeps a sufferer from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Sandy Springs chiropractor at Cross Chiropractic Center on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to dealing with the mind’s struggle with the pain and associated depression and/or varying 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 found that mindfulness-based treatment 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. It is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has seen lately. Many do not seek it out as they could. One interesting note about those who do seek help stemmed 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 reaching out for help with depression related to Sandy Springs back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Cross Chiropractic Center 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 Sandy Springs back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
