Groton Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us dealing with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective approach to decrease symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of treatment centers on biomechanical parameters to help improve clinical outcomes, such as increasing range of motion and reducing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Groton thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that involves the middle part of your spine, called the thoracic spine region. This area comprises 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 weak posture or an injury to the shoulder or arm that puts pressure on the nerves in this area. Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office are well trained in the identification and treatment of musculoskeletal issues like thoracic pain. 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 enhance range of motion in involved areas. Through regular visits with their Groton chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans tailored specifically for them, thoracic spine pain sufferers can find relief without having to take medications or undergoing surgery.


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 one very gentle type 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 new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain explained that spinal manipulation decreased pain intensity, disability, spinal stiffness, and tenderness. (1) Another report stated 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 be positive! Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office is ready to help.
