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 experienced such pain for at least 3 months. Thoracic spine manipulation efficiently increased flexion and rotation of the cervical region. (1) Another study used thoracic spine manipulation to decrease neck pain and enhance cervical spine range of motion in patients with mechanical neck pain and cervicothoracic junction dysfunction. It worked! (2) Sometimes it only needs one treatment. In this study, one thoracic manipulation visit comparably provided pain relief at immediate-term follow-up for chronic neck pain patients as thoracic mobilization. (3) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor at Spine & Sports Rehab Center is well-trained in providing 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 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 due to removal of the neurofibroma were relieved too. (4) Your Baton Rouge chiropractor is certain to address the primary and any influencing aspects to your spine pain condition. Pain relief is the goal!
