Millville Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective way to decrease symptoms and improve our quality of life. This type of care centers on biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such as improving range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Millville thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Wilson Family Chiropractic.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects the mid section of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area incorporates your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain involve sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, pinched nerve in the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributing issues may include weak posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. Wilson Family Chiropractic can figure this out with a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Wilson Family Chiropractic are well trained in identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions like thoracic pain. They depend on a hands-on approach in diagnosing and treating these conditions using various techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to reduce inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Via regular visits with their Millville chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans customized specifically for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can find relief without having to take 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 form of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be measured precisely with proper equipment. Such precision benefits those with thoracic pain. Research has shown that this type of treatment can decrease stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to assist in the reduction of pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation decreased 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 optimistic. (2) So come for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Wilson Family Chiropractic is ready to help.
