Pflugerville Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


Chiropractors like yours at Pflugerville Wellness Center are well 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, and other modalities to decrease inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Via regular visits with their Pflugerville chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans personalized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without having to take 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 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.
