The middle back is the region of the back between the ribcage and the base of the neck. It houses the thoracic spine, the largest portion of the spine and the only part that’s attached to the ribcage. The middle back is vital, but also sees a tremendous amount of use. Because of its size and the amount of stress we tend to put on it every day, there are many ways that we can hurt our middle backs and just as many ways to experience pain after injury. At Pierce Chiropractic, we can treat your mid-back pain, relieve your tension, and help you enjoy life again.
Pressure in mid-back, mid-back may feel stuck
Sharp knife feel under shoulder blade
Rock underneath shoulder
Stiff in the morning when trying to stretch
Popping sensation when waking up and stretching
Radiation from mid-back to outside of arm
Understanding what caused the pain will help you and your doctor know how to treat it. This can also help you avoid a similar action, or put a plan together to strengthen, stretch or enhance that part of the body to prohibit a reoccurrence.
Pulling something heavy off of a shelf
Twisting when grabbing items
Prolonged sitting (road trips or even a desk job)
Patients can experience immediate and long-term relief from pain and discomfort with chiropractic care and by making small lifestyle changes.
An immediate decrease in pain through adjustment or massage helps reduce inflammation and tension so the body has an opportunity to heal.
Sudden, sporadic or chronic middle back pain can keep us from living our best lives. The right treatment can get you back to your natural, healthy state.
