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

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the link? Interesting! Researchers have been describing how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its ability to affect and improve non-specific back pain. Wilson Family Chiropractic integrates this data into its Millville chiropractic treatment plan for relief of Millville 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 doesn’t appear to have a specific cause. Typical care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not commonly required 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 with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Wilson Family Chiropractic sees Millville low back pain patients like this. Such pain is many times frustrating for patients, and Wilson Family Chiropractic can often help.

Millville CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An effective method 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 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 excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower 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 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) Improvements like this are most welcomed by sufferers with Millville non-specific low back pain.
