For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good approach
to lessen symptoms and improve our quality
of life. This type of treatment 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 Pensacola
thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects
the middle section of your spine, called
the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest
wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain involve
sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, pinched spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include weak posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center can figure this out with a complete
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions like thoracic pain.
They use 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 lessen inflammation and improve
range of motion in involved areas. Via regular
visits with their Pensacola chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans personalized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers 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 form
of hands-on treatment using precise force, pressure, and
direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is a very gentle form
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 assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation decreased
pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report
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! Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center
is ready to help.
