Mid-back pain issues may come from poor posture as the muscles and ligaments have a difficult 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 done to exclude any more worrisome issues, so when red flags are ruled out, gentle West Des Moines chiropractic distraction manipulation may be applied. Executive Chiropractic of Iowa has the experience and the time to examine your spine and diagnose the condition and set up a relieving treatment plan


Chiropractic spinal manipulation and mobilization treatment for mid back pain relief has been researched. 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 appreciate any relief!  A different study described how spinal manipulation and mobilization treatment created assorted muscle responses and instantaneous effects on the pain intensity of chronic thoracic middle back pain patients. Spinal manipulation generated greater muscular response and greater decrease in pain intensity. (2) A third study questioned what influenced patients’ positive reaction to treatment for their non-specific thoracic spine pain? They discovered that their prospects of progress and their comfort throughout the spinal manipulative treatment exhibited influential roles in the patient responses. (3) Our West Des Moines mid-back pain patients have confidence in our chiropractic treatment and its positive outcomes of care.
