For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good option
to reduce symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of treatment centers on
biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such
as enhancing range of motion and reducing
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Murfreesboro
thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Most Chiropractic Clinic.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves
the mid section of your spine, called
the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest
wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain include
sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, compressed spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributing
issues may include poor posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area.
Most Chiropractic Clinic can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Most Chiropractic Clinic are experienced in identifying
and treating musculoskeletal conditions like thoracic pain.
They depend on a hands-on approach to
diagnose and treat these conditions using various
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,
and other modalities to lower inflammation and improve
range of motion in affected areas. Through regular
visits with their Murfreesboro chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans personalized for them, patients
suffering from thoracic pain can get relief without having to

HOW CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION WORKS AND HELPS
Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a type
of hands-on treatment using precise force, pressure, and
direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is a very gentle type
of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases
pain. The applied forces can be measured 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 help
relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain found that spinal manipulation decreased
pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report
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! Most Chiropractic Clinic
