For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective option
to lessen symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of treatment centers on
biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such
as improving range of motion and lessening
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Plainville
thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Layden Chiropractic.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that affects
the mid part of your spine, called
the thoracic spine region. This area includes 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, compressed nerve in
the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include poor posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Layden Chiropractic can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Layden Chiropractic are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain.
They depend on a hands-on approach to
diagnose and treat these conditions using a variety of
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,
and other modalities to lessen inflammation and enhance
range of motion in involved areas. Through regular
visits with their Plainville 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 type
of hands-on treatment that uses precise force, pressure, and
direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is a very gentle form
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 reduce
stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One recent study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation decreased
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! Layden Chiropractic
