Burlington and Hamilton Low Back Pain May Be Relieved with Care of the Diaphragm

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the relationship? Interesting! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its ability to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Spinal Care Clinic integrates this information into its Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Burlington and Hamilton 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 three months and does not appear to have a specific cause. Usual care is education and encouragement, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not commonly needed yet imaging, opioids and surgery continued to be 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 who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Spinal Care Clinic sees Burlington and Hamilton low back pain patients like this. This type of pain is many times frustrating for patients, and Spinal Care Clinic can often help.

Burlington and Hamilton CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An interesting method chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and writes 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 separates the thoracic (chest) and abdominal areas 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 significantly 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 bottom tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using manipulation and treating the diaphragm produced significant improvement in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5) Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization along 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) Improvements like this are most welcomed by sufferers with Burlington and Hamilton non-specific low back pain.
