The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the connection?
Curious! Researching clinicians have been describing
how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its
ability to influence and relieve
non-specific back pain. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. integrates
this data into its Auburn chiropractic treatment
plan to relieve Auburn non-specific
low back pain.
NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN
Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been troublesome for more than three
months and doesn’t seem to have a specific cause. Typical care is education and reassurance,
analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal
medical care is not typically needed though
imaging, opioids and surgery are often overused. (1) Visceral
fascial limitations, restrictions of the deep fibrous connective tissues surrounding
muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may produce pain in the
lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience
non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. sees Auburn low
back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of
pain is often annoying for patients, and
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can often help.
CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN
An interesting method
chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy utilizes and shares
cases and explanations of its success in reducing non-specific
low back pain is taking care of the diaphragm, that dome-shaped
muscular structure that separates the thoracic (chest) and
abdominal areas of the body. The diaphragm starts
along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and attaches to the
lower ribs. (3) It moves when we breathe. Stretching the diaphragm notably
enhances cervical spine extension, right and left cervical spine
flexion, flexibility of the posterior chain (the muscles of the back part
of the body) and ribcage excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower
tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Via manipulation and
treating the diaphragm produced significant reduction
in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5)
Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization in
combination with treatment of the low back specifically plus
breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration
and reduces disability for these patients. (6) Such improvements are very appreciated
by sufferers with Auburn non-specific low back pain.
