Mid Back/Upper Back/Rib Pain in Lakewood
Because rib injuries impair movement and breathing, diagnostic imaging such as x-ray, MRI, or CT scan may be ordered to assess the extent of the injury. Initially relief through rest, ice, kinesiology taping, and pain medications is helpful.
The scapula is often referred to as the shoulder blade. Biomechanically, the shoulder blade goes through a variety of different motions as it glides on the thoracic spine. Following a careful history, postural assessment, orthopedic testing, and neurological evaluation to rule out other causes, our unique soft tissue evaluation of the periscapular muscles will detect any trigger points or muscle adhesions that can contribute to hindered movement of your scapula.
Mid Back Pain/Upper Back Pain
The challenge in treating mid back pain is to differentiate whether it is referred pain from the cervical spine or localized pain. With careful attention to the patient’s history and an assessment of posture, joint mechanics, orthopedic, and neurological conditions we conduct a thorough evaluation. We will also diagnose any muscle imbalances that you may have and adjust your ergonomics accordingly.
