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

The diaphragm and back pain. What is the link? Curious! Researching clinicians have been describing how manipulation has an effect on the diaphragm and its capacity to have some bearing on and relieve non-specific back pain. Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic integrates this information into its Montreal chiropractic treatment plan to reduce Montreal non-specific low back pain.


Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been troublesome for more than 3 months and does not seem to have a specific cause. Typical care is education and encouragement, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually required yet imaging, opioids and surgery continued to be overused. (1) Visceral fascial limitations, restrictions of the deep fibrous connective tissues surrounding muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may produce pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic welcomes Montreal low back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of pain is many times annoying for patients, and Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic can often help.


An interesting approach chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses and writes cases and explanations of its success in reducing non-specific low back pain is treating the diaphragm, that dome-shaped muscular structure that separates the thoracic (chest) and abdominal sections 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 excursion at the xiphoid level (the lower tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) By means of 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 along with treatment of the low back specifically plus breathing exercises for non-specific chronic low back pain improves respiration and reduces disability for these patients. (6) Improvements like this are very appreciated by sufferers with Montreal non-specific low back pain.
