New Roads 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 option to lessen symptoms and improve our quality of life. This type of treatment focuses on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as improving range of motion and lessening pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help New Roads thoracic spine pain patients find relief at New Roads Chiropractic Center.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves the mid part of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area includes 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 nerve in the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributing issues may include poor posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area. New Roads Chiropractic Center can figure this out with a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at New Roads Chiropractic Center are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They employ a hands-on approach to diagnose and treat these conditions using a variety of techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to lower inflammation and improve range of motion in affected areas. Via regular visits with their New Roads chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans individualized for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can find relief without having to take medications or undergoing surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a form of hands-on treatment that uses 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 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 recent study of patients with chronic thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation reduced pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another study 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 be positive! New Roads Chiropractic Center is here.
