pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective option
to lessen symptoms and enhanced our quality
of life. This type of treatment focuses 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 Auburn
thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C..
WHAT IS THORACIC PAIN?
Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that affects
the middle section of your spine, known as
the thoracic spine region. This area includes 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 contributors may include weak posture or an injury to the
shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area.
Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. can figure this out via a thorough
examination of your spine.
HOW CHIROPRACTORS CAN HELP WITH THORACIC PAIN
Chiropractors like yours at Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. are well
trained in identifying

They use a hands-on approach to
diagnose and treat these conditions using a variety of
techniques such as manual adjustments, electrical stimulation therapy, exercises,
and other modalities to decrease inflammation and improve
range of motion in involved areas. Through regular
visits with their Auburn chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization

HOW CHIROPRACTIC SPINAL MANIPULATION WORKS AND HELPS
Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a type
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 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 recent study of patients with chronic
thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation reduced
pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report
noted 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! Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C.
