Symptoms of Upper Back Pain

Upper back pain can be a sharp stab on movement or a dull intermittent ache. Muscles in the upper back and shoulders may feel stiff and sore. Pressure on nerves can cause numbness in the arms. Some people experience weakness in the arms. You may experience loss of flexibility in the torso or difficulty bending or reaching.

Causes of Upper Back Pain

Upper back pain can result from an accident injury that affects the vertebrae in the mid-level of the back or higher. The discomfort can result from performing overhead tasks or from sport injuries that cause overuse of the muscles of the upper back. Falls can cause upper back pain, and some individuals experience discomfort in the upper back from poor posture when sitting at their desks. Arthritis can also affect the spine at the upper and mid-level. In some cases, herniated discs at upper levels can result in pain or stenosis of the spinal column.

Chiropractic Methods Can Relieve Upper Back Pain Symptoms

We offer a variety of treatment modalities to deal with upper back discomfort. Manual adjustment re-aligns the vertebrae of the spine, allowing bones and discs to return to their natural position. Non-surgical spinal decompression is used to gently separate the vertebrae, releasing pressure on muscles and nerves. Physical therapy helps to strengthen supporting structure to relieve stress. Massage therapy increases circulation to affected areas and improves function. We also use ultrasound waves and electrical stimulation to improve function and comfort.
