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

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the relationship? Curious! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its capacity to have some bearing on and improve non-specific back pain. Tarrytown Chiropractic includes this information into its Tarrytown chiropractic treatment plan for relief of Tarrytown non-specific low back pain.


Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been bothersome for more than three months and doesn’t appear to have a specific cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic medications, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually required however 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 with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Tarrytown Chiropractic sees Tarrytown low back pain patients like this. Such pain is many times frustrating for patients, and Tarrytown Chiropractic can frequently help.


An effective method chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and shares 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 areas of the body. The diaphragm originates along the lumbar vertebrae of the spine and connects 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) Via manipulation and treating the diaphragm produced significant improvement 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 lessens disability for these patients. (6) Improvements like this are very welcomed by sufferers with Tarrytown non-specific low back pain.
