Manage Pain With Mind-Body Healing

Posted on Jun 21, 2020


Do you ever wonder why some people seem super successful and others aren’t? If you ask successful people how they “got there,” they usually mention that they visualized their success long before it became a reality. In other words, they thought about where they want to be in life, and those thoughts seemingly helped make their dreams come true!

Now what about people who are in pain? Could a person feeling pain in a certain body part such as their lower back or neck utilize their brain to feel better? Research shows there’s a connection between how your brain thinks and the way your body feels. So, it makes sense that you could conceivably manage pain using mind-body healing techniques. Chiropractic care often teaches patients how to do this, as chiropractic is a holistic, drug-free approach to helping people be pain-free.

The mind-body healing connection involves changing the way a person thinks to become more positive about their situation. You have to have a healthy mindset in order to have a healthy body. If you’re going into chiropractic treatment with the expectation that “it’s going to help me, it’s going to work,” that helps facilitate your healing. It has been said that sometimes belief that treatments will work can be even more effective than the treatments themselves!

What are some things you can do to improve your mind so your body heals better/faster? Try writing a gratitude journal, listing 5 positive things you’re thankful for each day. Try figuring out what gives your life purpose so you’ll feel fulfilled. For some, that comes in the form of volunteering time to help others. Try meditation to give your mind and body some relief from stress each day– slow down and breathe, chant or pray. Try working out your muscles by lifting weights. Try watching funny videos in order to laugh more each day. All of these things can improve your life.

If you take a mind-body healing approach to your life, you can expect to feel better. Your problems such as insomnia and anxiety may lessen or disappear. It’s a good idea to consult with your chiropractor about your diet, as the foods/drinks you take in may be helping you or hurting you. Also, a chiropractor can help your body heal itself naturally thanks to spinal adjustments and such.

When you feel better, you can do more with your life. Think about it: if you’re feeling depressed and achy, are you going to want to get out of bed and meet up with people and volunteer at the local dog shelter? Probably not. If it hurts just to walk, life’s difficult! But if you’re able to improve your mind and your body and work toward healing the pains that bother you, then you can move forward in your life and lead a more fulfilling one!

Great place to heal!! Exceeded my expectations. My only complaint is I didn't come sooner!! After seeing three doctors with a solution of cortisone injections in my back it was time to try something more natural. While I've always understood the importance of chiropractic care I've never fully tried it. Everything they have done here is tailored for me! I started feeling better by the 3rd adjustment! I haven't taken a single pain med! Praise God!! Don't wait to get the care you need!! I wish I hadn't. Five stars and more!! Bonus....I was given all the equipment I need to do my stretches at home along with an in depth nutritional support system! Amazing!
