San Jose 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 option to decrease symptoms and improve 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 San Jose thoracic spine pain patients find relief at Chiropractic Solutions.


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


Chiropractors like yours at Chiropractic Solutions are experienced in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. They depend on 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 enhance range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their San Jose chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans tailored specifically for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can get relief without having to take medications or undergoing 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 one very gentle form of treatment that is segment specific, stretches spinal tissues, and eases pain. The applied forces can be calculated 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 explained that spinal manipulation decreased pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another study 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 positive. (2) So come for thoracic spine treatment with a positive attitude! Chiropractic Solutions is ready to help.
