Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office 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 are a member of the chiropractic profession, Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office inserts “spine” to this connection, rendering it much more specific to what we observe in our Groton back pain and neck pain patients. When the spine hurts, the mind and body can’t help but hurt, too. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office designs individualized Groton chiropractic treatment plans for spine pain, back pain, neck pain and related arm and leg pain sufferers that include chiropractic treatment, home exercise, and nutrition. Adding mindfulness practices to these spine care practices is many times helpful and encouraged.


Spine pain, back pain, neck pain wears on a person. Pain frequently keeps a sufferer from accomplishing what he or she wants/needs to do and from experiencing a joyful life. When working with your Groton chiropractor at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office on the physical pain relief, a back pain sufferer can take a mindful approach to coping with the mind and its struggle with the pain and associated depression and/or fluctuating levels of sadness is found to help.
