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

The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the link? Interesting! Researching clinicians have been reporting how manipulation affects the diaphragm and its ability to influence and relieve non-specific back pain. Layden Chiropractic includes this information into its Plainville chiropractic treatment plan to relieve Plainville non-specific low back pain.


Chronic non-specific low back pain is back pain that’s been annoying for more than three months and does not seem to have an exact cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not commonly required though 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. Treating patients with non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Layden Chiropractic welcomes Plainville low back pain patients with this type of condition. This type of pain is many times annoying for patients, and Layden Chiropractic can frequently help.


An interesting method 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 separates the thoracic (chest) and abdominal areas 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 enhances 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 accompanied by 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 most appreciated by sufferers with Plainville non-specific low back pain.
