What Causes Upper Back Pain?

There are many potential causes of upper back pain. Some people have always lived with upper back pain, perhaps due to muscle weakness or poor posture. For others, back pain is a new condition, perhaps brought on by muscle strain, a herniated disc, or another injury.

How Can I Prevent Back Pain?

One of the most important things that you can do is correct poor posture. When you are sitting at your desk or simply standing around, be sure to stand up or sit up straight in order to prevent undue stress from being put onto your back. Another thing you can do is be careful when lifting heavy objects. It is important to lift with your legs and not with your back. Lifting incorrectly can cause an injury which may result in back pain. Lastly, be sure that you get plenty of exercise. Exercise, such as core exercises, can prevent back pain by giving your back plenty of support.

Do Spinal Adjustments Ease Upper Back Pain?

Chiropractic adjustments are often part of an effective upper back pain treatment plan. They can help reduce pressure on your nerves and muscles, and they help you maintain proper alignment throughout the day. The proper alignment can also help give your back the support that it need to not be overly stressed throughout the day. Regular adjustments, at least early on, may be needed in order to get long term results. Talk to a chiropractor on our team about how often you should get adjustments.
