Upper Back Pain Treatment

Upper Back Pain Treatment With Today’s Chiropractic

If you have upper back pain, you know it. And you want it gone. Which is why you should see a chiropractor.

Upper back pain may be common, but it’s not normal. Bone, muscles and nerves of the upper spine are involved.

That’s why choosing the all-natural back pain treatment of today’s chiropractic makes so much sense.

Chiropractors see this common ailment of modern life all the time. And they know how to produce results without addictive drugs, irreversible surgery, unsightly braces and other traditional treatments.

The Thoracic Spine

The thoracic spine has a very different function from the neck or lower back. This area of the upper back is designed not for movement, but for stability and protection. It is made up of the twelve thoracic vertebrae, each of which is attached to a rib on both sides.

The top nine ribs curve around the body and attach in the front at the sternum. The lower three ribs do not reach all the way to the front, but they still curve around the sides. This structure creates a cage (the thoracic cage or rib cage) that encases the vital organs, protecting them from harm.

Because this area of the back allows for little motion, the occurrence of degenerative conditions or bulging discs in the thoracic spine is rare, and upper back pain is typically the result of muscle strain or dysfunction of the rib joints.

Become Familiar With Your Upper Back

Your upper back, called the thoracic spine, supports your chest and rib cage. Located below your neck and above your lumbar spine, it supports and protects your most vital organs.

Your 12 pairs of ribs attach to your 12 thoracic vertebrae. So, while your neck and lower back are designed to allow turning, twisting and bending, the upper back is designed for stability.

Thankfully, it’s less susceptible to strain and degenerative conditions like bulging discs. However, the upper back is often subjected to spinal misalignments, dislocated rib heads, muscle spasms and nerve entrapment.

Determining the precise cause of the resulting upper back pain, and resolving it naturally, is the everyday work of today’s highly-skilled chiropractor.

Common Causes of Upper Back Pain

Two primary upper back pain causes are muscle strain and joint dysfunction.

Muscle strain typically occurs as a result of unhealthy postures or repetitively performing certain activities and motions. Especially hunched over a computer or handheld digital device. For hours at a time.

This common form of joint dysfunction often produces shoulder pain, tensed shoulders and shoulder blades, irritating nerves and causing pain in the upper back.

Many report a stabbing pain in the middle of their upper back. If this is you, when it comes to the treatment of your upper back pain, you have an important decision to make.

Will you choose a natural solution? Or merely fool your body with a drug that prevents you from hearing your body’s cry for help?

Traditional Upper Back Pain Treatment

Since upper back pain can stem from muscle spasms, nervous system irritation or rib joint malfunction, traditional treatment is designed to dull the pain with powerful drugs.

Mission accomplished! Not so fast.

As your body flushes out the medication, the effect wears off and the pain returns. Eventually the dosage of pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications has to be increased to produce the same relief.

Worse, the underlying structural malfunction is still there, producing degenerative changes and making its ultimate correction far more difficult.

Moderate exercise can be beneficial. But exercising strained areas puts further stress on the muscles and joints, creating additional nerve irritation and potentially worsening the underlying problem.

If only there was a natural solution without all the side effects. There is.
