Mid Back Pain

IStock 000015961703 Large, Action Sports MedicineMid back pain is characterized by muscle soreness as opposed to structural damage. It’s typically caused by sudden impact or poor posture over a period of time. Most cases of mid back pain resolve with rest and anti-inflammatory medication, however the closer the injury is to the lower back region, the higher the chance of a more serious injury. If you’ve experienced violent trauma, or have a fever coinciding with your mid back pain, we recommend that you get checked out by a doctor.

Treatment Options

Conservative Treatment

  • Chiropractic: Chiropractic treatment is an alternative health care profession that focuses on treating disorders of the musculoskeletal system.  Most mid back pain is caused by a combination of factors, including injury, poor posture, chiropractic subluxations, stress, and in some instances, disc problems which can be treated by a chiropractor.
  • Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is designed to promote a patient’s overall health and fitness, prevent injury and maximize quality of life. Physical therapy is a treatment method for improving limited body movement and functionality and is highly effective for mid back pain. A physical therapist can work with you to restore full, pain-free movement and help your body heal and improve your mid back pain.
  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is a thousand year old traditional Chinese treatment for chronic pain. It is very effective treatment for back pain and has been used for head pain since the earliest beginnings of traditional Chinese medicine.
