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

July 17, 2018

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the link? Interesting! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its capacity to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic includes this data into its Augusta chiropractic treatment plan to relieve Augusta 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 seem to have an exact cause. Typical care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually needed however 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. Caring for patients who have non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic welcomes Augusta low back pain patients like this. Such pain is many times frustrating for patients, and Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic can often help.


An interesting approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy utilizes and writes 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 originates 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 back part 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 reduction in pain and disability for patients with non-specific chronic low back pain. (5) Treating the thoracic spine (mid-back) with mobilization along 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 very welcomed by sufferers with Augusta non-specific low back pain.
