Thoracic Spine [Mid Back] Training: Start Here


What is the Thoracic Spine?

The thoracic spine is the middle section of the spine located between the cervical spine (i.e., neck) and lumbar spine (i.e., low back). It consists of 12 vertebrae, labeled T1-T12, that are stacked on top of each other, with intervertebral discs filling the space between each vertebra. The vertebra provides bony support to the head and neck, and the space between each vertebra allows for mobility of the upper body, including the chest and ribcage. Muscular work capacity helps to maintain upright posture and supports the weight of the head, neck, and upper extremities.

Understand: The thoracic spine consists of 12 joints, and joints are trainable.

What is Joint Specific Training? 

Training is the mechanism that stimulates change (+) by performing work.

Joint training is performing specific work that changes the physical state of the joint to have:

 Increased Joint Space

↑ Improved Connective Tissue Architecture + Load Bearing Capacity of Joint Capsule

↑ Increased Muscular Work Capacity  


Understand: Joints are plastic to training, and joint-specific training WILL elicit positive multifaceted effects to change the physical state of the joint in ways that increase: function, fitness, and health.
