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

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 ability to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation incorporates this information into its Tonawanda chiropractic treatment plan for relief of Tonawanda non-specific low back pain.


Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been annoying for more than three months and does not appear to have an exact cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually required however 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 cause pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation sees Tonawanda low back pain patients with this type of condition. Such pain is often frustrating for patients, and Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can frequently help.


An interesting approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses 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 divides the thoracic (chest) and abdominal areas of the body. The diaphragm originates along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and attaches 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 backside of the body) and ribcage movement at the xiphoid level (the bottom tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) By means of 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 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) Improvements like this are most welcomed by sufferers with Tonawanda non-specific low back pain.
