Pensacola Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


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 surgery.


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.
