Benefits of Brooks Chiropractic Treatment of the Thoracic Spine

The thoracic spine affects the cervical spine affects the lumbar spine. They’re all interconnected!

Soft Health and Healing Clinic treats the full spine of each of our Brooks chiropractic patients for most advantage. Research is supporting this!


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 suffered with such pain for at least 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation efficiently enhanced 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 succeeded! (2) Sometimes it only takes 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 Brooks chiropractor at Soft Health and Healing Clinic is experienced in delivering 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 issues that need relief, too. A case report of a female patient experiencing neurofibromatosis (type 1) along with neck, scapula, lumbar and temporomandibular pain and headache describes relief with chiropractic care. Cervical spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation in conjunction with myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care tips 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 eased too. (4) Your Brooks chiropractor is certain to address the main and any influencing aspects to your spine pain condition. Relief of pain is the goal!
