Benefits of Toronto Chiropractic Treatment of the Thoracic Spine

Full spine care is delivered at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre. Benefits of Toronto chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine extend to the neck and low back. The thoracic spine affects the cervical spine impacts the lumbar spine. They are all interconnected! New research is suggesting that treating an adjoining area of the spine impacts the relief of pain in the other. Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre treats the full spine of each of our Toronto chiropractic patients for most advantage. Research is reinforcing this!


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 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 report, one thoracic manipulation visit similarly delivered pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Toronto chiropractor at Yorkville Chiropractic and Wellness Centre is experienced in delivering thoracic spine manipulation that not only feels great but is quite relieving.


Patients with neck pain and cervical spine motion limitation 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 decreased neck pain and headache frequency. The chronic tightness and pain in the cervicothoracic regions and lumbar spine due to removal of the neurofibroma were relieved too. (4) Your Toronto chiropractor makes sure to tackle the primary and any contributing aspects to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the aim!
