Neck pain and other cervical spine conditions restrict
cervical spine motion. Thoracic spine spinal

recurrent neck or shoulder pain with or without arm pain who had experienced such pain for at least 3 months. Thoracic
spine manipulation effectively increased
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
