West Palm Beach 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 option to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of treatment focuses on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as enhancing range of motion and reducing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help West Palm Beach thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Chiropractic Care.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects the middle part of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain include muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, compressed nerve in the spine, 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. Chiropractic Care can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Care are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions 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 reduce inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Via regular visits with their West Palm Beach chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans customized specifically for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can get relief without resorting to taking medications or having to undergo surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a type of hands-on treatment using 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 specifically 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 assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation reduced 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! Chiropractic Care is here.
