What Causes Upper Back Pain?
Upper back pain has a wide range of causes, but it is most often associated with pulled or strained back muscles. Some of the most common causes of upper back pain include:
- Injuries due to pulled back muscles
- Muscle tension due to stress
- Poor posture due to work ergonomics or misalignment of the spine
- Prior injuries, such as auto injuries and whiplash or sports injuries
Although less common, it is also possible to suffer from upper back pain due to issues such as herniated and bulging discs in the upper spine. Upper back pain can also radiate from the neck and shoulder muscles, making it difficult to find the root cause and treat it effectively.
How Can a Chiropractor Help My Pain?
Our chiropractor will first conduct a physical exam to determine the extent of your injuries if you have any, and determine the root cause of your upper back pain. We will do so by conducting a physical exam to help find the cause of your pain, as well as ask questions about the nature of your pain. In addition, x-rays might also be used to get a better idea of the inside workings of your skeletal system.
Then, our chiropractor will provide the best chiropractic treatment for you, which can include:
- Massage therapy to help alleviate pain due to sore upper back muscles and tension
- Trigger point therapy to alleviate knots in your muscles
- Spinal adjustments to help realign the spine, improve posture and upper back pain
- Spinal decompression for upper back pain due to herniated discs
