Upper Back & Mid Back Pain
Upper & Mid back pain isn’t as prevalent as neck pain or lower back pain; however, it has become more prominent in today’s society. The structures of you upper and mid back can become irritated or inflamed in response to a variety of mild to serious conditions.
The upper & mid back is made up of twelve thoracic vertebrae, their interlocking facet joints and discs, along with muscles, tendons, and ligaments that support the structure and allow movement. Attached to each vertebra are the ribs. The ribs wrap all the way around your body protecting your vital organs. This rigid cage does not allow your mid back to bend and twist as much as your neck and lower back so we see much less wear and tear type problems in this area.
Causes of Upper & Mid Back Pain
Upper & Mid back pain has many different causes, such as sports injury, poor posture, arthritis, disease, muscle strain, trauma suffered in a car accident, or can even radiate from neck injuries such as a whiplash injury. Other common causes can include:
Incomplete rehabilitation of past injuries
Lack of proper and periodic thoracic spinal alignments
Presence of thoracic spine subluxations
Improper lifting techniques
Improper workstation setup
Prolonged use of non-ergonomically designed equipment
Excessive repetitive torsal motions
Scoliosis (lateral deviation of the spine)
