  • Massaging the diaphragm could help relieve crippling lower-back pain, finds new study

    Massaging the diaphragm could help relieve chronic lower back pain, according to a new study.

    The researchers found that patients reported 'a significant reduction' in lower back pain following a treatment program with diaphragm massaging when compared with a group without it.

    The diaphragm is a 'sheet' of muscle that lies beneath our rib cage and is connected to the Thoracic and Lumbar vertebrae in the spine.

    A healthy diaphragm helps us breath by controlling the chest muscles to expand and contract, drawing in and exhaling breath.

    When the diaphragm is tense, it shrinks and becomes less mobile, so the body compensates by using the tendons in the spine to control the chest muscles.

    As a result, the back becomes less able to move freely, and this increases the chances of developing lower back pain.

    Massaging the diaphragm helps to alleviate chronic back pain by taking the stress off of these overworked tendons.
