Apple Country Chiropractic Helps Relieve Mid-Back Pain

Mid-back pain. Have you ever experienced that? Tightness in the mid-spine? It’s not that uncommon, and Williamson chiropractic treatment of the mid-back is relieving. Just ask our thoracic spine pain patients who have found relief at Apple Country Chiropractic!


Mid-back pain issues may be a result of poor posture as the muscles and ligaments have a hard time trying to keep you balanced as well as stress, stenosis, rare disc herniation, trauma, whiplash, lengthy computer work, backpack carrying, etc. So many separate issues may bring on mid-spine pain. A thorough examination must be performed to rule out any more worrisome issues, so when red flags are ruled out, gentle Williamson chiropractic distraction manipulation may be beneficially used. Apple Country Chiropractic has the experience and the time to examine your spine and diagnose the condition and set up a relieving treatment plan


Chiropractic spinal mobilization and manipulation treatment for mid back pain relief has been studied. In one study, chronic thoracic spine pain patients with pain coming from the T6 to T8 area for over 90 days were studied for their response to spinal manipulation. Though not significant, a decrease in pain intensity, spinal stiffness, tenderness, and disability were noted. (1) Pain sufferers are happy with any relief!  Another study reported how spinal manipulation and mobilization treatment produced different muscle responses and instantaneous effects on the pain intensity of chronic thoracic middle back pain patients. Spinal manipulation produced greater muscular response and greater decrease in pain intensity. (2) A third study asked what impacted patients’ positive response to treatment for their non-specific thoracic spine pain? They found that their expectations of improvement and their comfort throughout the spinal manipulative treatment exhibited influential roles in the patient responses. (3) Our Williamson mid-back pain patients have confidence in our chiropractic treatment and its positive outcomes of care.
