Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. We hear much about the mind-body connection. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre adds “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Toronto back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body cannot help but hurt, too. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre designs individualized Toronto 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 often holds a sufferer back from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from enjoying life. When working with your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind’s struggle with the pain and related 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 well-developed and accessible mental health services, underutilization of those services is common. Use is better than it used to be with all the attention mental health has seen of late. Many don’t seek it out as they could. One interesting note about those who do seek help stemmed 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 has a mental health issue or not, don’t avoid reaching out for help with depression related to Toronto back pain. Today, there are many options to get help for pain-related depression. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre offers evidence-based treatment via the Cox® Technic System of Spinal Pain Management to cope with the physical aspect of spine pain and encourages our Toronto back pain sufferers to consider using a mindfulness practice to cope with the mind’s mental side of spine pain.
