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.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
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.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
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
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 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.
