THORACIC MANIPULATION TO BETTER CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION
Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict cervical spine motion. Thoracic spine spinal manipulation improved 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 increased flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to reduce neck pain and enhance cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It worked! (2) Sometimes it only needs one treatment. In this study, one thoracic manipulation visit similarly provided pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Easley chiropractor at Young Chiropractic is experienced 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 limitation may come 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 explains 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. The chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine where the neurofibroma had been removed were relieved too. (4) Your Easley chiropractor makes sure to tackle the main and any influencing factors to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the goal!
