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.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
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.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
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
HOW CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION WORKS AND HELPS
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.
