THORACIC MANIPULATION TO IMPROVE CERVICAL SPINE FUNCTION

Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict motion in the neck. 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 at least 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 improve cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It succeeded! (2) Sometimes it only takes one treatment. In this report, one thoracic manipulation visit comparably delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Richmond chiropractor at Johnson Chiropractic is experienced 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 limitation may come with other issues 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 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.
