Johnson Chiropractic 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, Johnson Chiropractic adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we observe in our Richmond back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Johnson Chiropractic designs individualized Richmond 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 often beneficial and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires 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 Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can choose a mindful approach to coping with the mind’s 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 utlilized a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based therapy had a positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Additionally, researchers uncovererd 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 don’t 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 supportively influenced them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who has a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to Richmond back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Johnson 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 Richmond back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental aspect of spine pain.
