Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions limit cervical spine motion. Thoracic spine spinal manipulation enhanced neck function for patients with chronic or recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had suffered with such pain for a minimum of 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation effectively enhanced flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to decrease neck pain and better cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It worked! (2) Sometimes it only takes one treatment. In this study, one thoracic manipulation visit comparably provided pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization.
