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

The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the link? Interesting! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation influences the diaphragm and its ability to influence and improve non-specific back pain. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre includes this data into its Toronto chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Toronto 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 seem to have a specific cause. Typical care is education and encouragement, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not typically needed though imaging, opioids and surgery are often 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 be relieving. (2) Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre welcomes Toronto low back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of pain is many times annoying for patients, and Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can often help.

Toronto 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 reducing 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 starts along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and connects to the lower ribs. (3) It moves when we breathe. Stretching the diaphragm notably 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) By means of 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 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 Toronto non-specific low back pain.
