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 centers on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as improving range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Orchard Park, NY thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Novelli Wellness Center.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that impacts the middle 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 muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, pinched spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include poor posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. Novelli Wellness Center can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Novelli Wellness Center are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They use 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 lessen inflammation and improve range of motion in involved areas. Via regular visits with their Orchard Park, NY chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans personalized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without resorting to taking medications or undergoing surgery.
