Default Dividing oregano plant

Hi all! I have an established oregano plant that has been in my garden for three years now, and that sucker is HUGE!!! We're talking 2 1/2' tall and about 3 1/2' wide. I have done some research on splitting it in the spring, but most sites say to lift the entire plant and divide it from there. With the plant being so huge that is going to be a difficult job. Can I just run a spade shovel down the center of the plant and dig up one side, or is that too harsh for this type of plant? I don't want to risk permanent damage to the plant, but its running out of room where it is.
