Persisting pain in the middle of the back, difficulty in breathing post a fall, suspicion of harm to the diaphragm. What could it be?

my daughter fell down stairs about 2 years ago and was unable to catch her breath. She saw a chiropractor at that time which helped. She has continued to have pain in middle of back and unable to breath, on and off. This last series has been going on for about 6 mo and has gotten worse and makes herself yawn to be able to breathe. She has seen the chiropractor 6-8 times with no relief. He had his PHysical Therapist see her and thought it might have something to do with the diaphragm. What could that be? Also could it possibly be from a disc problem from the fall?
