Satterwhite Chiropractic Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Since we’re part of the chiropractic profession, Satterwhite Chiropractic inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Oxford back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Satterwhite Chiropractic designs individualized Oxford 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. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is often beneficial and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Oxford chiropractor at Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 related depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is reported to be helpful. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who used a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based treatment had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers uncovererd that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. It’s 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 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 Oxford back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression. Satterwhite Chiropractic 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 Oxford back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to deal with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
