June 29, 2021

Full spine care is delivered at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc. Fort Wayne chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine benefits mid-spine pain as well as neck and low back pain even. The thoracic spine impacts the cervical spine affects the lumbar spine. They are all interconnected! New research is describing how treating an adjoining section of the spine influences the pain relief of the other. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc treats the full spine of each of our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients for most benefit. Research is reinforcing this!


Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict motion in the neck. Thoracic spine spinal manipulation enhanced neck function for patients with chronic or recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had suffered with such pain for a minimum of 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation efficiently increased flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to decrease neck pain and improve cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It worked! (2) Sometimes it only takes one treatment. In this study, one thoracic manipulation session comparably delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor at Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc is well-trained in providing thoracic spine manipulation that not only feels great but is quite relieving.


Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion restriction may come with other conditions that need relief, too. A case report of a female patient experiencing neurofibromatosis (type 1) along with neck, scapula, lumbar and temporomandibular discomfort and headache describes relief with chiropractic care. Cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation in conjunction with myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care recommendations lessened neck pain and headache frequency. Her chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine where the neurofibroma had been removed were eased as well. (4) Your Fort Wayne chiropractor is certain to tackle the main and any influencing aspects to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the aim!
