For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective approach
to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of treatment centers on
biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such
as increasing range of motion and lessening
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Tonawanda
thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that affects
the middle part of your spine, called
the thoracic spine region. This area incorporates your chest
wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain involve
sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, pinched nerve in
the spine, 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.
Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation are well
trained in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain.
They depend on 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 affected areas. Through regular
visits with their Tonawanda chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans personalized 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 type
of hands-on treatment that uses precise force, pressure, and
direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle form
of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases
pain. The applied forces can be calculated precisely
with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain.
Research has shown that this type of treatment can reduce
stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain found 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 optimistic. (2) So be positive! Chiropractic Spine Sports And Rehabilitation
is ready to help.
