Pain in the upper back is not as common as lower back pain because the thoracic spine does not move as much as the spine in the lower back and neck. With that said, here at Austin’s TexStar Chiropractic we provide chiropractic treatment for upper back pain to a high volume of patients and have an extremely high level of success in improving the lives of our upper back pain patients.
There are numerous nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the upper back. Any of these structures can become irritated or inflamed in response to a variety of different factors and conditions. This includes poor posture, overuse, trauma, arthritis and, rarely, bone cancer. However, most upper back pain involves muscle irritation, joint problems, or a combination of both. The skeletal system works hand-in-hand with muscles and is why chiropractors are extensively trained to address both spine and muscle health. Whether it be through chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression, cryotherapy, whole body vibration therapy, or one of our many other chiropractic modalities, you can expect fewer strains and healthier muscles in as little as one chiropractic treatment here at TexStar!
