Gormish Chiropractic & 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 are a member of the chiropractic profession, Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Carrolltown back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation designs individualized Carrolltown 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. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often helpful and supported.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Carrolltown chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation on the physical pain relief, a back pain patient can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind and its struggle with the pain and related 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 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 once was 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 positively motivated 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 seeking assistance with depression related to Carrolltown back pain. Today, there are numerous options to get help for pain-related depression. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Carrolltown back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
