Symptoms of Upper Back Pain

Individuals with upper back problems may experience sharp pain high on the spinal column or neck discomfort that radiates down into the back. They may have a stiffness that inhibits smooth movement on turning. Pain may radiate down the arm or into the chest. Some individuals experience pins and needles sensations in the extremities related to disc problems in the upper back. The discomfort may prevent working on overhead tasks.

Causes of Upper Back Pain

Upper back pain may be the result of a fall injury or may occur from overuse of muscles and tendons during moving or other strenuous activity. Sudden twisting or reaching during sports activities can also cause injuries to the upper back. Improper lifting can also cause damage to the spinal structures. Automobile accident impacts can also cause damage to structures in the upper spine. Poor posture can also put a strain on structures that result in chronic pain.

Chiropractic Techniques Can Help

Chiropractic offers a non-invasive, drug-free method of healing musculoskeletal injuries, and your Queen’s chiropractor can develop a care plan for your unique needs. Manual adjustment can be used to re-align the spinal structures to release pressure on muscles and nerves. Rehabilitative exercises strengthen muscles for more efficient movement. Massage therapy helps to promote healing, bringing oxygen-rich blood and healing natural chemicals to affected areas. Your chiropractor can also advise you on ergonomic improvements that can help to prevent injury in the future.
