Full spine care is delivered at Vancouver Disc Centers.
Benefits of Vancouver chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine extend
to the neck and low back.
The thoracic spine impacts the cervical spine impacts
the lumbar spine. They’re all interconnected! Recent research
is describing how treating an adjacent section
of the spine influences the relief of pain in
the other. Vancouver Disc Centers treats the full spine of each of our Vancouver
chiropractic patients for most benefit. Research is supporting
THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE
Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions limit
cervical spine motion. Thoracic spine spinal
manipulation improved neck function for patients with chronic or
recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had experienced such pain for a minimum of 3 months. Thoracic
spine manipulation effectively increased
flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic
spine manipulation to decrease neck pain and enhance
cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and
cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It succeeded! (2) Sometimes
it only takes one treatment. In this report, one
thoracic manipulation visit comparably provided
pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as
thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Vancouver chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers
is well-trained in delivering thoracic spine
manipulation that not only feels great but is quite relieving.
CHIROPRACTIC MANIPLULATION TO RELIEVE HEADACHE AND NECK PAIN
Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion restriction
may arise with other conditions that need relief, too.
A case report of a female patient experiencing neurofibromatosis
(type 1) along with neck, scapula, lumbar and temporomandibular discomfort
and headache describes relief with chiropractic care. Cervical
spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation in conjunction with
myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care tips
lessened neck pain and headache frequency. Her
chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due
to removal of the neurofibroma
were relieved too. (4) Your Vancouver
chiropractor makes sure to tackle the primary
and any influencing aspects to your spine pain
condition. Relief of pain is the goal!
