Thorocolumbar Junction and Quadratus Lumborum

I have a question, please. I have injuries to my t12 and ql. When I go to eat, the food seems to get "stuck" in that area. My wife will have to push into the side, not directly on the spine, at the t12 junction to get the food moving. It's also happens when the food goes lower in the digestive tract. To get a bm to occur we have to push a piece of foam or something of the like into to the back area for me to pass. Have you heard of anything like this? I am losing weight as my wife is at work a lot and cannot be here to do the pushing. Please advice, comment, etc. We live in a small town and the docs seem to be at a loss. Thank you.
