Manahawkin Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good approach to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of treatment centers on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as increasing range of motion and reducing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Manahawkin thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves the mid part of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain involve muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, pinched spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include weak posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area. Manahawkin Chiropractic Center can figure this out with a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Manahawkin Chiropractic Center are experienced in identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions like thoracic pain. They employ a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using various techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to lessen inflammation and improve range of motion in involved areas. Via regular visits with their Manahawkin chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans customized specifically for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can get relief without having to take medications or having to undergo surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a form of hands-on treatment using precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle type of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be measured specifically with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain. Research has shown that this type of treatment can decrease stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation reduced pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another study noted that patients who were “responders” to spinal manipulation for non-specific thoracic spine pain relief were those whose expectations of improvement and comfort during spinal manipulation were positive. (2) So come for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Manahawkin Chiropractic Center is ready to help.
