Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 part of the chiropractic profession, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we see in our Paramus back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center creates individualized Paramus 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 such spine care practices is many times helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center 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 fluctuating 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 positive effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers discovered that even in countries with accessible, well-developed mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. It is better than it used to be with all the notice mental health has received of late. Many don’t seek it out as they may. One interesting note about those who do seek help stemmed from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which supportively motivated them to seek help for their own issue.
