Toronto Thoracic Spine Pain Helped by Chiropractic Care

For those of us struggling with thoracic (mid-spine) pain, chiropractic spinal manipulation therapy can be an effective way to lessen symptoms and enhanced our quality of life. This type of care focuses on biomechanical parameters to help enhance clinical outcomes, such as enhancing range of motion and decreasing pain levels. Let's explore the ways in which this type of therapy can help Toronto thoracic spine pain sufferers find relief at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre.


Thoracic pain is a type of back pain that impacts the mid section of your spine, known as the thoracic spine region. This area comprises your chest wall, ribs, and lungs. The most common sources of thoracic pain include muscle strain or sprain, disc injury, spinal stenosis, compressed spinal nerve, 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. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre can figure this out via a thorough examination of your spine.


Chiropractors like yours at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre are experienced in identifying and treating musculoskeletal conditions 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 lower inflammation and enhance range of motion in affected areas. Through regular visits with their Toronto chiropractor for spinal manipulation and mobilization and treatment plans tailored specifically for them, patients suffering from thoracic pain can find relief without having to take medications or undergoing surgery.


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization is a form of hands-on treatment using precise force, pressure, and direction to relieve spinal pain. Cox® Technic is one very gentle form 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 reduce stiffness in the spine and relax muscles to help relieve pain levels. One new study of patients with chronic thoracic pain documented that spinal manipulation reduced 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! Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is ready to help.
