⚫️Thoracic Spine Manual Therapy⚫️
Quick follow up video😁. Big Filly tried the thumbs up test from the last video, but was a couple inches off!❗️We found that his upper back was the stiff part preventing a good thumbs up, but watch him crush the 👍thumbs up test👍 WITH EASE after treatment✅.
Upper back, or thoracic spine, stiffness can happen for a variety of reasons, the most common one being lack of daily thoracic movement🤸♂️🏊♂️🏌️♂️, and too much time 🕔 spent in one posture (sitting👨💻). This stiffness has been linked to issues pretty much everywhere✖️, especially in the neck, upper back, shoulders and low back.
Manual therapy interventions for the thoracic spine have been associated with improvements in pain, function, and disability in patients with neck, back, and shoulder conditions.
