THORACIC MANIPULATION TO IMPROVE CERVICAL SPINE
Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict
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 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 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 session comparably delivered
pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as
thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Sitka chiropractor at Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka

and headache explains relief with chiropractic care. Cervical
spine flexion distraction spinal manipulation along with
myofascial release, ergonomic patient education, and active care tips
