THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION

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 experienced in providing thoracic spine manipulation that not only feels great but is quite alleviating.

Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion restriction may arise with other issues that need relief, too.

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 where the neurofibroma had been taken out were eased as well.
