Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict 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 suffered with such pain for at least 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation efficiently increased flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to reduce 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 similarly provided pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization.

Cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation in conjunction with myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care recommendations reduced neck pain and headache frequency. The chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due to removal of the neurofibroma were relieved too.
