Our thoracic spine is the largest section of our spine that is made up of 12 vertebras, connecting from the base of your neck down to the round of your back. This area is designed for rotation to occur.
Our thoracic spine can stiffens from daily wear and tear. Without a properly functioning thoracic spine, movements at the surrounding structures are compromised.
Some common conditions that arise from lack of thoracic mobiltiy are: neck pain, low back pain, shoulder pain and restricted lung capacity due to reduced chest expansion.
Chiropractic manipulation and exercises can help increase thoracic mobility, Here is a home exercise you can try to maintain your thoracic movements.
