Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC Encourages Adding Mindfulness to Chiropractic Back Pain Care

Mind-body-SPINE connection. The mind-body connection is in the health news a lot. Being a member of the chiropractic profession, Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC adds “spine” to this connection, making it much more specific to what we see in our La Grande back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC designs individualized La Grande 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 these spine care practices is many times beneficial 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 La Grande chiropractor at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to dealing with the mind and its struggle with the pain and related depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is found to be helpful. In a study of lumbar disc herniation patients with back pain who utlilized a mindfulness-based therapy, researchers discovered 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, those services are not well-utilized. Use 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 curious note about those who do seek help stemmed from their knowing someone with a mental health issue which positively influenced them to seek help for their own issue. (2) Whether you know someone who suffers with a mental health issue or not, do not avoid pursuing assistance with depression related to La Grande back pain. Today, there are many options to get support for pain-related depression.
