How do I know if I’m having upper back pain?
The upper back, also referred to as the thoracic spine, is a vital part of the spine that features 12 stacked vertebrae that support the neck, shoulders, head, and chest. These vertebrae are part of a skeletomuscular system that contain nerve endings on either side, and these nerve endings branch out into your ribcage, sternum, lower abdomen, and flexible joints.
If your upper back is sore or injured, you may experience sharp pains in any of these areas. That could include joint pain (such as your neck, hips or knees), headaches, and muscle stiffness. More severe symptoms of upper back pain includes migraines, tingling sensations in the limbs, and a difficulty for maintaining balance.
How do I utilise chiropractic care to ease my upper back pain?
Chiropractic care is a drug-free and non-invasive option to strengthen the muscles in your back and reduce any pain or discomfort you may be experiencing. It restores proper functioning of the central nervous system by easing the tension in the spinal cord and promoting homeostasis within the body.
At MyChiro, each new client is holistically assessed by a trained professional in their initial consultation to determine the areas of concern and measure the potential lifestyle impact.
