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

The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the link? Curious! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation influences the diaphragm and its capacity to have some bearing on and relieve non-specific back pain. Most Chiropractic Clinic incorporates this knowledge into its Murfreesboro chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Murfreesboro 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 encouragement, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not typically required yet 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 produce pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees Murfreesboro low back pain patients like this. Such pain is often annoying for patients, and Most Chiropractic Clinic can often help.


An effective method chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and shares 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 originates along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and attaches to the lower ribs. (3) It moves when we breathe. Stretching the diaphragm significantly 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 excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using 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 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) Such improvements are very welcomed by sufferers with Murfreesboro non-specific low back pain.
