Importance of Thoracic Spine Mobility
Feeling stiff when you are throwing a ball? Can't bring your arm back behind your head? Having trouble turning your body side to side? These are common symptoms an individual has when their thoracic spine is immobile. A decrease in thoracic spine mobility and poor posture can lead to improper and restricted movements in sports such as swimming, golfing, kayaking, tennis players or any other sport that requires good thoracic extension or rotation.
How can chiropractic Help?
Chiropractic increases the movement of the spine! We create and help mobilize each joint of the human body, the spine specifically. With an adjustment to the thoracic spine, we increase the mobility of the spine, improve muscle functions, and improve posture. We also provide certain exercises that will help with the mobility of the thoracic spine such as foam rolling, thoracic extensions, postural exercises, and muscle strengthening movements around the area.
