Fort Wayne Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

February 07, 2023

For those of us struggling 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 treatment focuses on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as improving range of motion and lessening pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Fort Wayne thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc.


Thoracic pain is a kind of back pain that impacts the mid part of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain involve muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, pinched nerve in the spine, and/or facet joint dysfunction. Other causes may include bad posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that involves pressure on the nerves in this area. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc can figure this out with a complete examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They depend on 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 decrease inflammation and enhance range of motion in involved areas. Via regular visits with their Fort Wayne chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans personalized for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can get relief without having to take medications or undergoing surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a type of hands-on treatment that uses precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle type of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be calculated precisely 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 new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation reduced pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report 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! Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is here.
