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

The diaphragm and back pain. What’s the relationship? Curious! Researching clinicians have been reporting how manipulation influences the diaphragm and its ability to affect and relieve non-specific back pain. Satterwhite Chiropractic incorporates this knowledge into its Oxford chiropractic treatment plan to relieve Oxford 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 an exact cause. Usual care is education and reassurance, analgesic meds, and non-pharmacological therapies. Formal medical care is not usually required however 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 cause pain in the lumbar spine. Caring for patients who experience non-specific low back pain with manipulation and exercise may help. (2) Satterwhite Chiropractic welcomes Oxford low back pain patients with this type of condition. Such pain is often annoying for patients, and Satterwhite Chiropractic can frequently help.


An effective method chiropractic’s collegial profession of osteopathy uses 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 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 notably 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 movement at the xiphoid level (the lower tip of the chest’s sternum). (4) Using manipulation and treating the diaphragm created significant improvement 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 plus 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 Oxford non-specific low back pain.
