CHIROPRACTIC CARE BEYOND THE SPINE
Chiropractors are known for their care
of musculoskeletal spinal issues. Not a
bad thing! Chiropractors do have more to share. Related
to musculoskeletal care is prevention of musculoskeletal problems. A survey of
chiropractors regarding their use of primary prevention
care of musculoskeletal problems and other public
health-related disorders found that chiropractors certainly
offer such preventive care and are prepared to do
so, but patients do not usually visit them mainly
for such care. (1) Additionally, a review of chiropractic
websites discovered that 79% of them mentioned
care of one or more non-musculoskeletal conditions like sleep issues,
constipation/digestive issues, unease/discontent in children, and menstrual cramps/pain.

HYPERKYPHOSIS & RESPIRATION IMPROVEMENT
More studies are describing
the benefits of thoracic mobilization for improvement in thoracic hyperkyphosis
(upper spine curvature experienced by nearly 20-40%
of older adults) and respiratory function. Diaphragmatic breathing is talked
about a lot for its calming benefits. Diaphragmatic
excursion, how far the diaphragm is
able to expand on inhale, is associated with respiratory
function. Improving diaphragm excursion is beneficial.
In a recent study of healthy volunteers with thoracic
hyperkyphosis, 8 weeks of thoracic mobilization improved the
diaphragmatic excursions during deep breathing, increased forced
vital capacity, and the thoracic hyperkyphosis itself. The researchers concluded
and suggested the inclusion of thoracic mobilization in
respiratory rehab programs to manage and avert
respiratory dysfunction in those with thoracic hyperkyphosis. (3) Murfreesboro

SHOULDER MOTION IMPROVEMENT
Shoulders benefit, too! Shoulder pain patients
reported that thoracic spinal manipulation immediately increased
neuromuscular drive in addition to serratus anterior muscle
activity, a crucial muscle for scapular motion.
Thoracic spinal manipulation is associated with short-term
improvements in shoulder clinical outcomes.

delivering gentle thoracic manipulation.
