CHIROPRACTIC CARE BEYOND THE SPINE

Chiropractors are known for their care of musculoskeletal spinal issues. That’s not all bad! Chiropractors do have more to share. Linked to musculoskeletal care is prevention of musculoskeletal problems. A survey of chiropractors about their use of primary preventive care of musculoskeletal disorders and other public health-related disorders found that chiropractors undoubtedly offer such prevention care and are ready to do so, but patients don’t usually visit them primarily for such care. (1) Additionally, a review of chiropractic websites discovered that 79% of them referred to care of one or more non-musculoskeletal conditions like sleep issues, constipation/digestive issues, unease/discontent in children, and menstrual cramps/pain.

HYPERKYPHOSIS & RESPIRATION IMPROVEMENT

Several studies are reporting on the benefits of thoracic mobilization for improvement in thoracic hyperkyphosis (upper spine curvature experienced by almost 20-40% of older adults) and respiratory function. Diaphragmatic breathing is talked about a lot for its calming benefits. Diaphragmatic excursion, how far the diaphragm expands on inhale, is associated with respiratory function. Increasing diaphragm excursion is beneficial. In a new study of healthy volunteers with thoracic hyperkyphosis, 8 weeks of thoracic mobilization increased the diaphragmatic excursions during deep breathing, increased forced vital capacity, and the thoracic hyperkyphosis itself. The researchers summarized and recommended the inclusion of thoracic mobilization in respiratory rehabilitation programs to cope with and avert respiratory dysfunction in those with thoracic hyperkyphosis. (3) Buffalo, NY chiropractic spinal treatment offers benefits beyond the spine itself.

SHOULDER MOTION IMPROVEMENT

Shoulders benefit, too! Shoulder pain sufferers found that thoracic spinal manipulation immediately enhanced neuromuscular drive as well as serratus anterior muscle activity, a key muscle for scapular motion. Thoracic spinal manipulation is linked with short-term improvements in clinical outcomes of shoulder pain. (4) The Novelli Wellness Center is well trained gentle thoracic manipulation.
