WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
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.

HOW CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION WORKS AND HELPS
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 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 reduce
stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to help
relieve pain levels. One recent study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation decreased
pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report
stated 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 be positive! Novelli Wellness Center
is ready to help.
