THORACIC MANIPULATION TO IMPROVE CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION

Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions limit motion in the neck. 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 effectively increased 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 needs one treatment. In this study, one thoracic manipulation session comparably delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Ashburn chiropractor at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is well-trained in providing 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 suffering with neurofibromatosis (type 1) along with neck, scapula, lumbar and temporomandibular pain and headache explains relief with chiropractic care. Cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care recommendations reduced neck pain and headache frequency. The chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due to removal of the neurofibroma were eased too. (4) Your Ashburn chiropractor makes sure to address the primary and any contributing factors to your spine pain condition. Relief of pain is the aim!
