Chiropractic Reliefs for Upper Back Pains From Aging

By Chris Brown

As I get older, the sore, tight pain from moving furniture or attempting a sport hits my body, and my back, ever sooner. It can even appear sometimes out of the blue. Nagging upper back pain can become debilitating at times. In fact, back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Finding a solution for quelling the pain, that doesn't involve highly addictive pain medications, is crucial for those suffering. Luckily, The Joint Chiropractic offers that solution for last-minute, walk-in patients. The Joint's chiropractors are skilled at fixing subluxations that end pain and restore upper back functionality.

Why Upper Back Pain Increases With Age

The main causes of upper back pain and tightness are overuse strain, postural problems, and stress. As we age, our postures (and stress levels) tend to worsen which makes any strain ever more damaging to the upper back. Add in any pre-existing injuries or herniations and it is no surprise that upper back pain is one of the most common conditions for aging adults. The pain that radiates from the upper back is so extreme because its spine protects important cranial and respiratory nerves. In an attempt to protect the precious nerves, the body creates stiffness and pain with even minor injuries. That is why consulting a doctor and relieving symptoms is crucial, but possible, with chiropractic's spinal manipulation techniques.

Chiropractic Solutions to Non-Descript Upper Back Pain

Chiropractic is so successful at healing upper back pain (and back pain in general) because it deals directly with one of the main causal problems, subluxations in the spine. Vertebral subluxations are dysfunctional spinal joints that either don't move correctly or interact negatively with the spinal nerves. The chiropractor is able to safely reposition the spine so that it is functioning optimally again. Once that occurs, nerve pressure disappears and, with it, often the muscular tightness and pain as well. Additionally, these procedures can fix postural issues which may have been the ultimate cause for the injury in the first place. By working directly with the back, chiropractors provide a more complete upper back treatment than medication-heavy mainstream medicine.

If you are looking to try chiropractic manipulation on your aching back, The Joint Chiropractic can offer affordable treatments without insurance. It can take as little as one walk-in session at The Joint to free up your tight back and give you back your freedom.
