St. Francisville CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An effective approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy utilizes 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 originates 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 created significant improvement 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 and breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and lessens disability for these patients.
