The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the link?
Curious! Researching clinicians have been describing
how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its
capacity to have some bearing on and relieve
non-specific back pain. Complete Health Medical P.C. integrates
this knowledge into its East Setauket chiropractic treatment
plan for relief of East Setauket non-specific
low back pain.
NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN
Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been annoying for more than 3
months and doesn’t appear to have a specific cause. Usual care is education and encouragement,
analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal
medical care is not commonly required though
imaging, opioids and surgery continued to be 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 have
non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Complete Health Medical P.C. welcomes East Setauket low
back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of
pain is many times frustrating for patients, and
Complete Health Medical P.C. can frequently help.
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 treating 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
improves 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 movement at the xiphoid level (the lower
tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using 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 East Setauket non-specific low back pain.
