Plainville Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


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 surgery.


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 is here.
