Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Baton Rouge back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation designs individualized Baton Rouge 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 such spine care practices is many times helpful and encouraged.


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 enjoying life. When working with your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take 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 mindfulness-based therapy specifically for back pain sufferers with a lumbar disc herniation, researchers found that mindfulness-based treatment had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Additionally, researchers found that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. Use is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has seen of late. Many don’t seek it out as they could. 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 reaching out for assistance with depression related to Baton Rouge back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get support for pain-related depression.
