    Neste caso, acho que está mais para a definição abaixo:

    break the back of something
    Fig. to end the domination of something; to reduce the power of something. The government has worked for years to break the back of organized crime. This new medicine should break the back of the epidemic.
    See also: back, break

    "quebrou as pernas da recessão".
