Auburn Low Back Pain May Be Relieved with Care of the Diaphragm

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.


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.


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.
