Benefits of Vancouver Chiropractic Treatment of the Thoracic Spine

Full spine care is offered 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!

Vancouver Disc Centers treats the full spine of each of our Vancouver chiropractic patients for most benefit. Research is supporting this!

THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION

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 factors to your spine pain condition. Relief of pain is the goal!
