Fort Wayne Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


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 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 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.
