Upper Back Pain

Acute and chronic upper back pain can make the easiest of tasks hard to perform. Upper back pain is an all too common complaint that can be effectively addressed with chiropractic. Our team applies non-invasive therapeutic treatments to reduce sudden or persistent upper back pain naturally. Understand more about our upper back pain treatments today.

Where Is The Upper Back?

Patients are more likely to come in for pain in the upper back than for the lower back. The upper back region extends from below the neck to above the lower back. This region is also known as the thoracic spine. It has a limited range of motion when compared to other areas of the spine due to its attachment to the rib cage.

Upper back pain can occur all of a sudden or be a symptom of a chronic condition. Aside from the discomfort itself, patients often experience a reduced range of motion, stiffness, or muscle spasms.

Causes of Upper Back Pain

Back pain in the thoracic spine and attached musculature can make it difficult to perform routine tasks, or enjoy a restful night of sleep. Conditions that can result in discomfort in this area include:

  • Nerve compression
  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Vertebrae injury
  • Musculoskeletal strain

This area of the body does a significant amount of physical work. Sudden trauma or injury can lead to inflammation, spinal subluxation, and more. Chronic pain in the area may be from repetitive stress injuries in one or more associated areas. Activities and sudden movements that can end up causing a problem in the upper back region include:

  • Poor posture
  • Whiplash
  • Frequent texting and computer use
  • Overuse
  • Contact sports

Understand more about how chiropractic and associated therapies can speed up the healing process.

How Chiropractic Can Treat the Upper Back

When upper back pain does not resolve quickly, chiropractic may help. An individualized treatment program may include chiropractic care, physical therapy, or acupuncture, and can be effective in correcting spinal imbalances, improving mobility, and naturally reducing pain. Such treatments can realign the thoracic spine, reduce tension in any affected musculature, and support the body’s healing process.
