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

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the relationship? Curious! Researchers have been describing how manipulation influences the diaphragm and its capacity to have some bearing on and relieve non-specific back pain. Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology incorporates this information into its Plymouth chiropractic treatment plan to relieve Plymouth non-specific low back pain.

NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been bothersome for more than three months and does not appear to have a specific cause. Usual care is education and encouragement, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually needed 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 cause pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Atiyeh Chiropractic and Functional Neurology sees Plymouth low back pain patients with this type of condition.

Plymouth CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An interesting approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and writes cases and explanations of its success in relieving non-specific low back pain is treating the diaphragm, that dome-shaped muscular structure that divides 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 backside of the body) and ribcage movement at the xiphoid level (the bottom tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using manipulation and treating the diaphragm created significant improvement in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5) Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization accompanied by 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) Improvements like this are very welcomed by sufferers with Plymouth non-specific low back pain.
