Benefits of San Jose Chiropractic Treatment of the Thoracic Spine

Full spine care is delivered at Chiropractic Solutions. Benefits of San Jose chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine extend to the neck and low back. The thoracic spine impacts the cervical spine impacts the lumbar spine. They are all interconnected! New research is describing how treating an adjacent section of the spine influences the pain relief of the other. Chiropractic Solutions treats the full spine of each of our San Jose chiropractic patients for most advantage. Research is supporting this!


Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions limit 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 suffered with 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 succeeded! (2) Sometimes it only needs one treatment. In this report, one thoracic manipulation session comparably delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your San Jose chiropractor at Chiropractic Solutions is experienced in providing thoracic spine manipulation that not only feels great but is quite relieving.


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 suffering with 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 decreased neck pain and headache frequency. Her chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due to removal of the neurofibroma were relieved too. (4) Your San Jose chiropractor makes sure to address the main and any contributing aspects to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the aim!
