There is an interesting study found at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) called the “Effectiveness of mindfulness meditation on pain and quality of life of patients with chronic low back pain”, which concludes that mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) is effective for chronic low back pain (LBP).
How does mindfulness meditation help chronic low pain? It lessens the tension, which releases the tight muscles, and allows for proper nerve innervation, and blood flow to the low back. Once the tension is relieved the body will do what it is intended to do - effectively oxygenate tissues, deliver nutrients, and remove waste products from all the body.
As you can remove the impediments, stress and tension, your body will come into balance, which is the the state it is always seeking.
