Chiropractic Care for Upper Back Pain

By Sara Butler

Upper back pain can strike anyone at any time and for a variety of reasons. You may occasionally experience upper back pain after sitting at your computer for hours, or maybe you experience it constantly and are searching for relief. No matter how upper back pain impacts your life, the chiropractors at The Joint are here to help. They can diagnose and identify the causes of upper back pain to help you find relief. Here’s what you need to know!

Common Causes of Upper Back Pain

Upper back pain can strike for several reasons. Some of the most common reasons for this type of back pain include:

  • Bad mattress – When a mattress doesn’t provide adequate support, it can place pressure on the spine while you’re sleeping, resulting in a painful upper back when you wake in the morning.
  • Whiplash – Often associated with car accidents, whiplash can cause upper back and neck pain after the collision that lasts days or even years.
  • Weight issues – Excess body weight can put pressure on the muscles and joints of the upper back, leading to pain and discomfort.
  • Text neck – With so many people using portable electronic devices today, text neck has become a phenomenon. Looking down with the head hanging forward for long periods of time places stress on the neck and upper back, often leading to pain and other symptoms.

How Chiropractic Treatment Helps

Chiropractors at The Joint provide a range of treatments for upper back pain. Once the chiropractor assesses you and determines the underlying cause of your pain, they may treat you with:

  • Spinal adjustments – This is the hands-on technique chiropractors are famous for. They can help remove joint restrictions and dysfunctions that are causing pain, reducing the pressure placed on the spinal nerves and allowing the body to work as it should.
  • Exercises and stretches – Chiropractors can recommend therapeutic exercises and stretches to strengthen muscles, reduce tension, and increase blood flow. This can help you to feel more comfortable as your recover from injury.

If you are experiencing upper back pain, then come into The Joint Chiropractic to discuss how you can treat it with the help of a chiropractor. You don’t have to live with upper back pain, so let the chiropractors at The Joint help you to figure out what is causing it and how to resolve it!
