Embracing Mindfulness Practice For Holistic Back Pain Relief

Chronic back pain is a huge problem in modern society that can lead to long term disability, sleep problems and depression. Our doctors and GPs are limited in how they can help. The most common solution is to try and hide the pain with various pain killers. This can work sometimes to mask the pain but it’s rarely a good, permanent solution.  

Our emotions play a significant role in how we experience chronic pain in the body. Feeling constant pain can lead to spiralling negative emotions, like helplessness, resentment, frustration, fear and anger. Mindfulness is great for helping us manage those feelings and emotions so they don’t get in the way of us living a meaningful life.

In the following article the NHS considers a study done on the effectiveness of mindfulness for dealing with low back pain.

A US study compared a technique called mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) with usual care and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for long-term non-specific lower back pain.
