Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC Helps Relieve Mid-Back Pain

Mid-back pain. Have you ever felt that? Tightness in the mid-spine? It is not that unusual, and La Grande chiropractic treatment of the mid-back alleviates pain. Just ask our thoracic spine pain patients who have realized relief at Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC!


Mid-back pain issues may come from poor posture as the muscles and ligaments have a hard time trying to keep you balanced as well as stress, stenosis, rare disc herniation, trauma, whiplash, lengthy computer work, backpack carrying, etc. A variety of different issues may bring on mid-spine pain. A thorough examination must be performed to rule out any more troubling issues, so when red flags are excluded, gentle La Grande chiropractic distraction manipulation may be beneficially used. Paulette Hugulet, DC, LLC has the experience and the time to examine your spine and diagnose the condition and establish a relieving treatment plan


Chiropractic spinal mobilization and manipulation care for mid back pain relief has been studied. In one study, chronic thoracic spine pain patients with pain extending from the T6 to T8 area for over 90 days were studied for their response to spinal manipulation. Though not significant, a reduction in pain intensity, spinal stiffness, tenderness, and disability were recorded. (1) Pain sufferers are happy with any relief!  A different study described how spinal manipulation and mobilization treatment produced various muscle responses and immediate effects on the pain intensity of chronic thoracic middle back pain patients. Spinal manipulation produced greater muscular response and reduction in pain intensity. (2) A third study queried what impacted patients’ positive reaction to treatment for their non-specific thoracic spine pain? They discovered that their expectations of improvement and their comfort during the spinal manipulative treatment played important roles in the patient responses. (3) Our La Grande mid-back pain patients have confidence in our chiropractic treatment and its positive outcomes of care.
