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

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the connection? Interesting! Researching clinicians have been reporting how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its ability to influence and improve non-specific back pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation includes this knowledge into its Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Carrolltown non-specific low back pain.

NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that has been annoying for more than 3 months and doesn’t seem to have a specific cause. Typical care is education and reassurance, analgesic meds, 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 enclosing muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may produce pain in the lumbar spine. Treating patients with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation welcomes Carrolltown low back pain patients like this. Such pain is many times frustrating for patients, and Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can frequently help.

Carrolltown CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An effective approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and publishes cases and explanations of its success in relieving non-specific low back pain is taking care of the diaphragm, that dome-shaped muscular structure that divides the thoracic (chest) and abdominal sections of the body. The diaphragm originates along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and connects 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 backside of the body) and ribcage movement at the xiphoid level (the bottom tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Via manipulation and treating the diaphragm created 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 and breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and reduces disability for these patients. (6) Such improvements are very welcomed by sufferers with Carrolltown non-specific low back pain.
