Mid Back Pain/Upper Back Pain in Lakewood
The mid back area is referred to as the thoracic spine. Mid back pain can occur from too little movement or as referred pain from a condition of the neck.
Localized back pain often affects those who sit at a computer for long periods of time with a forward head carriage. This unnatural position of leaning forward causes excessive force on the shoulder and mid back, the area between the shoulder blades, and results in muscle imbalances and strain.
Weakness in the mid back and front neck muscles can occur, as well as tightness in the pecs and muscles behind the neck. Occasionally, some of the nerves between the shoulder blades may become compressed and painful.
Our Approach at Renew Chiropractic in Lakewood
The challenge in treating mid back pain is to differentiate whether it is referred pain from the cervical spine or localized pain.
Dr. Jumper will pay careful attention to the history and an assessment of your posture, joint mechanics, orthopedic, and neurological conditions. Dr. Jumper at Renew Chiropractic in Lakewood will conduct a thorough evaluation to help you with your mid and upper back pain.
Dr. Jason Jumper at Renew Chiropractic will diagnose any muscle imbalances that you may have and adjust your ergonomics accordingly. Once the cause of your mid back pain is accurately diagnosed, treatment will consist of Biophysics Techniques, Pettibon Techniques, 3 Dimensional Mirror Image exercises, stretching, physical therapy, spinal manipulation, and soft tissue therapies such as Active Release Techniques, , Transverse Cross Friction Massage, Fascial Manipulation, Vibracussor or Trigger Point Therapy to the strained areas.
In addition, imaging such as x-ray, diagnostic ultrasound, EMG, or MRI may be considered to rule out any pathologic process. Physical therapy alone usually only provides transient relief and specific soft tissue therapies and corrective movements are needed to re-align, reset, and restore the damaged tissue.
