For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good way
to decrease symptoms and improve our quality
of life. This type of care centers on
biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such
as increasing range of motion and decreasing
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Fort Wayne
thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that impacts
the middle 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
sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, pinched nerve in
the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include bad posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Aaron Chiropractic Clinic can figure this out with a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic are well
trained 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 lower inflammation and improve
range of motion in involved areas. Through regular
visits with their Fort Wayne chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans customized
specifically 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 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 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 recent study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation reduced
pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another study
stated 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! Aaron Chiropractic Clinic
is ready to help.
