Fernandina Beach Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

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.


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.


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 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 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 is here.
