What Causes Upper Back Pain?

Upper back pain is a little bit less common than lower back pain but is still equally as debilitating. Upper back pain can have various causes, which can include poor posture due to misaligned spine or poor work ergonomics.

In addition, issues that affect the lower back, such as herniated discs or bulging discs, can also impact the upper back leading to pain. Traumatic injuries such as those with car accidents, including whiplash, can also contribute to upper back pain. Sore intense upper back muscles due to stress are one of the main culprits of upper back pain. 

How Can a Chiropractor Help Me?

A chiropractor is a trained medical provider that has spent their careers recognizing the relationship between the musculoskeletal system in the body. It may be easy for them to determine the cause of your upper back pain by conducting physical exams, as well as imaging tests such as x-rays.

Using this information, our chiropractor will help determine the best course of treatment for your upper back pain. This may include gentle chiropractic adjustments to the upper neck to help realign the spine and help improve posture and overall well-being. Chiropractic care is natural and non-invasive. It works to treat your ailment at its source, rather than only mask its symptoms.
