Thoracic spine

Question: I wonder if any other RSI sufferer has had manipulation of the thoracic spine as part of physiotherapy treatment. The physio I currently see (at rare intervals, fortunately) uses this, and it does seem to have a remarkable effect.

Answer 1: I have had my spine manipulated by a Chiropractor and this has made a difference to some of my RSI symptoms (blotchy hands). Personally I feel that any treatment that removes some of your body’s bad habits or conditions will improve your RSI. I guess that most people with RSI will have some problems with their upper back due to the position that anyone using a keyboard sits in.

Answer 2: What is thoracic spine manipulation? Is it when they lie on you and it all goes pop, pop?
