Minster Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be a good approach to reduce symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of care focuses on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as enhancing range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Minster thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Minster Chiropractic Center.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects the mid section of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain include muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, compressed spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include weak posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area. Minster Chiropractic Center can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Minster Chiropractic Center are well trained in identifying and treating musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They employ a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using a variety of techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to lessen inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their Minster chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans individualized for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can get relief without resorting to taking medications or having to undergo surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a form of hands-on treatment using precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is a very gentle type of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be measured 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 found that spinal manipulation reduced pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another study 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 positive. (2) So come for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Minster Chiropractic Center is ready to help.
