San Jose Low Back Pain May Be Relieved with Care of the Diaphragm

The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the connection? Interesting! Researchers have been describing how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its ability to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Chiropractic Solutions includes this data into its San Jose chiropractic treatment plan to reduce San Jose 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 seem 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 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 be relieving. (2) Chiropractic Solutions welcomes San Jose low back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of pain is many times annoying for patients, and Chiropractic Solutions can frequently help.

San Jose CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An interesting method chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and publishes cases and explanations of its success in relieving 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 starts along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and attaches 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 backside 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 accompanied by treatment of the low back specifically plus breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and lessens disability for these patients. (6) Such improvements are very welcomed by sufferers with San Jose non-specific low back pain.
