Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic inserts “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our Eugene back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic designs individualized Eugene chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that incorporate chiropractic treatment, nutrition, and home exercise. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain tires a person. Pain often holds a sufferer back from doing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic 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 be helpful. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who used a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered that mindfulness-based therapy had a good effect on pain beliefs and psychological well-being. (1) Further, researchers found that even in countries with well-developed and accessible mental health services, those services are not well-utilized. It is better than it once was with all the attention mental health has received lately. Many do not 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 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 reaching out for assistance with depression related to Eugene back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to deal with the physical side of spine pain and encourages our Eugene back pain sufferers to consider utilizing a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental part of spine pain.
