Burlington and Hamilton Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good option to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of care 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 Burlington and Hamilton thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Spinal Care Clinic.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that impacts the middle part of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain include muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, compressed nerve in the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributing issues may include bad posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. Spinal Care Clinic can figure this out with a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Spinal Care Clinic are experienced in identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions like thoracic pain. They employ a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using a variety of techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to decrease inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their Burlington and Hamilton chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans individualized for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can find relief without resorting to taking medications or having to undergo surgery.


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 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 help relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation reduced 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 optimistic. (2) So be positive! Spinal Care Clinic is ready to help.
