For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective way
to lessen symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of care centers on
biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such
as improving range of motion and reducing
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Carrolltown
thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves
the middle section of your spine, known as
the thoracic spine region. This area incorporates your chest
wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain involve
muscle strain or sprain, disc
injury, spinal stenosis, compressed nerve in
the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include bad posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation are experienced in identifying
and treating musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain.
They depend on a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using various
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,
and other modalities to reduce inflammation and enhance
range of motion in affected areas. Through regular
visits with their Carrolltown chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans individualized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without resorting to taking medications or undergoing
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 one very gentle type
of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases
pain. The applied forces can be calculated 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 help
relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation reduced
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! Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
