Southern New Hampshire CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN
An interesting method 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 separates the thoracic (chest) and abdominal sections 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 significantly 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 excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Via 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 Southern New Hampshire non-specific low back pain.
