Give me some reasons why I want to improve my thoracic mobility
The paradox of thoracic mobility is that it relies on movement in the first place; in order to maintain thoracic mobility, we have to be mobile. The thoracic spine influences movement and function up above and below its particular segment, which means that maintaining its mobility is central to maintaining your spinal health. Here are some of the benefits to be gained from more thoracic mobility:
- Less pain
- A more stable lumbar spine
- Better range of motion throughout the upper body
- A less-rounded upper back
- Reverses kyphosis and improves lung capacity
So how do I improve thoracic mobility?
Improving thoracic mobility starts with identifying the particular points that are limited. We then use targeted, natural modalities, including spinal adjustment and mobilization, to restore mobility and reduce pain. By lengthening the spine, and then gently restoring mobility to the thoracic spinal joints, we effect great improvements in your overall spinal health. From here, we enact a plan of stretching and strengthening that focuses on maintaining the mobility of your thoracic spine.
