The Freeman Spine and Pain Announces Treatments Are Available for Thoracic Sprains


Edison, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2017 -- The leading spine pain management provider in Clifton, NJ and surrounding areas, the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute, is happy to announce they are offering treatments for thoracic sprains.

The majority of the time, a thoracic sprain happens when a severe injury occurs. The thoracic spine is located in between the bottom of the rib cage and the base of the neck. It is supported by ligaments, tendons, and muscles, which all allow the back to carry out lateral movement. Muscle pain can occur when these ligaments get torn or damaged due to activities such as heavy lifting, extreme twisting of the back, or stress due to a sudden force. A thoracic sprain can limit the mobility of both the ribs and/or the thoracic region, and they most commonly occur in working age groups.

Thoracic back pain can sometimes be an early sign of non-musculoskeletal diseases and non-orthopedic conditions like heart disease and kidney problems. Common symptoms of thoracic pain include mid-back pain, weakness and instability, tenderness, swelling, stiffness of the back and neck, and decreased mobility of the thoracic region. While mild sprains can with heal with rest and over-the-counter medications, there are many cases where additional forms of treatment will be needed. Treatment for a thoracic sprain at the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute can include massages, physiotherapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic care.

Patients dealing with a thoracic sprain are encouraged to reach out to the Freeman Spine and Pain Institute's professional team to learn more about available treatment options. Interested parties can schedule a consultation with a neck doctor at their office in the Clifton, NJ area by calling 877-710-9324 or filling out a contact form online at
