Benefits of McHenry Chiropractic Treatment of the Thoracic Spine

Full spine care is offered at Spengel Chiropractic. McHenry 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’re all interconnected!

Spengel Chiropractic treats the full spine of each of our McHenry chiropractic patients for most benefit. Research is reinforcing this!

THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION

Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict cervical spine motion. Thoracic spine spinal manipulation enhanced neck function for patients with chronic or recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had experienced such pain for a minimum of 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation efficiently enhanced flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to decrease neck pain and better 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 report, one thoracic manipulation session similarly delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your McHenry chiropractor at Spengel Chiropractic is well-trained in delivering thoracic spine manipulation that not only feels great but is quite alleviating.

CHIROPRACTIC MANIPLULATION TO RELIEVE HEADACHE AND NECK PAIN

Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion restriction may arise 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 pain and headache describes relief with chiropractic care. Cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation in conjunction with myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care tips reduced neck pain and headache frequency. The chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine where the neurofibroma had been taken out were relieved as well. (4) Your McHenry chiropractor is certain to tackle the main and any contributing factors to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the aim!
