For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine)
pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective way
to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of treatment focuses on
biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such
as increasing range of motion and reducing
pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Fernandina Beach
thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic.
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that affects
the mid section of your spine, called
the thoracic spine region. This area comprises 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, compressed spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributing
issues may include poor posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area.
Amelia Chiropractic Clinic can figure this out via a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Amelia Chiropractic Clinic are well
trained in identifying
and treating musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain.
They depend on a hands-on approach to
diagnose and treat these conditions using various
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,
and other modalities to lessen inflammation and enhance
range of motion in affected areas. Via regular
visits with their Fernandina Beach chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization
and treatment plans individualized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without resorting to taking medications or undergoing
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 form
of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases
pain. The applied forces can be measured precisely
with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain.
Research has shown that this type of treatment can decrease
stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to help
relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain found 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 optimistic. (2) So come
for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Amelia Chiropractic Clinic
