Colorado Springs 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 way to decrease symptoms and improve our quality of life. This type of treatment centers on biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such as increasing range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Colorado Springs thoracic spine pain patients find relief at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that involves the middle section of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area incorporates your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common causes of thoracic pain include sprain or strain of muscle, injury to a disc, spinal stenosis, compressed spinal nerve, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other contributors may include bad posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 various techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises, and other modalities to lower inflammation and improve range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their Colorado Springs chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans personalized 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 that uses 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 specifically 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 help relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain documented 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 optimistic. (2) So be positive! The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is here.
