Carrolltown Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


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 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 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 is here.
