90: Using The Mind-Body Connection To Heal Chronic Pain with Dr. Kirstie Griffiths

Are you struggling with chronic pain? Many people struggle with this every day, and unfortunately, the typical medical model just doesn’t work for everyone. Sometimes you need more naturopathic methods to heal your body. 


In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I am talking to Dr. Kirstie Griffiths about healing the body and alleviating chronic pain using the mind-body connection. 


Dr. Kirstie Griffiths is a Canadian chiropractor, yoga teacher, and best-selling author practicing in Guelph, Ontario. Her passion is in helping people overcome back pain using a mind-body approach that integrates chiropractic and yoga. 


Dr. Griffiths offers holistic, heart-centered care to patients and practices an evidence-informed model of healthcare. She has a particular interest in assessing and treating chronic pain and understanding the interplay between mental and physical health. 


Dr. Griffiths is the author of “Back to Wellness: A mind-body approach to managing your back pain” and the founder of “Yoga for Back Pain,” a 12-week online program that combines education, movement, and meditation, specifically designed for individuals with back pain


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • Why traditional medicine doesn’t work for everyone
  • What meditative acupuncture is
  • What mind-body medicine is
  • The importance of looking at the whole person when treating pain
  • The effect of positive mantras
  • Tips for staying on track with your healing journey


If you are experiencing chronic pain, remember that you’re not alone if you have found it challenging to continue to eat well or get active to heal your pain. There are people out there who can support you. 


It is absolutely possible to work through it and achieve health and happiness on the other side.
