(1) Visceral fascial limitations, restrictions of the deep fibrous connective tissues enclosing muscles, bones, nerves, arteries and veins), may produce pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may be relieving. (2) Vancouver Spine Care Centre sees Vancouver low back pain patients like this.

Vancouver CHIROPRACTIC CARE OF NON-SPECIFIC LOW BACK PAIN

An effective method 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 divides 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 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 in combination 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) Such improvements are most appreciated by sufferers with Vancouver non-specific low back pain.
