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.
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 upper back area may be from an auto accident related injury or 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
• Frequent texting and computer use
• Contact sports
Understand more about how chiropractic and associated therapies can speed up the healing process.
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.
