the other. Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic treats the full spine of each of our Eugene
chiropractic patients for most benefit. Research is reinforcing
THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE
Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict
motion in the neck. Thoracic spine spinal
manipulation enhanced neck function for patients with chronic or
recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had suffered
with such pain for a minimum of 3 months. Thoracic
spine manipulation efficiently enhanced
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 study, one
thoracic manipulation session similarly provided
pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as
thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Eugene chiropractor at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic
is well-trained in providing thoracic spine
manipulation that not only feels great but is quite alleviating.
CHIROPRACTIC MANIPLULATION TO RELIEVE HEADACHE AND NECK PAIN
Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion restriction
may arise with other issues that need relief, too.
A case report of a female patient suffering with neurofibromatosis
(type 1) along with neck, scapula, lumbar and temporomandibular discomfort
and headache describes relief with chiropractic care. Cervical
spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with
myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care tips
decreased neck pain and headache frequency. The
chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due
to removal of the neurofibroma
were eased as well. (4) Your Eugene
chiropractor is certain to address the primary
and any influencing factors to your spine pain
condition. Pain relief is the goal!
