Pensacola 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 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 connects 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 bottom 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 along with 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) Improvements like this are very appreciated by sufferers with Pensacola non-specific low back pain.
