For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective approach
to reduce symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of care focuses on
biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such
as enhancing range of motion and lessening
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Pflugerville
thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Pflugerville Wellness Center.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that affects
the mid part of your spine, called
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, pinched nerve in
the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include poor posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Pflugerville Wellness Center can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN

trained in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain.
They use a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using a variety of
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,

range of motion in affected areas. Via regular

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 a 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 recent study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain explained 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 optimistic. (2) So come
for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Pflugerville Wellness Center
is ready to help.
