Symptoms and Causes of Upper Back Pain
It is important to take note of the symptoms and causes of back pain so that you can effectively communicate them to your chiropractor. The more information you provide, the quicker your chiropractor can address the pain.
Upper back pain symptoms can often radiate to other parts of the body through affected nerves and their pathways. It is crucial for your chiropractor to identify the source of the pain, make an accurate diagnosis, and provide appropriate back pain treatment and technologies.
In addition to upper back pain, the following symptoms may also arise:
- Shooting or sharp pain
- Stinging or burning sensations
- Pins-and-needles sensation
- Fatigue or insomnia
- Anxiety or depression
- Chest pain
- Abdominal pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Indigestion or nausea
- Unusual sweating
The source of upper back pain is typically located in the thoracic spine, shoulder blades, or ribs. It may also involve spinal discs, nerves, tendons, muscles, or even the spinal cord itself. Upper back pain can be induced by various conditions or injuries, both of which can be equally painful
Some common sources of upper back pain include:
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Nerve compression
- Muscle tension
- Degenerative diseases
- Disc misalignment
Back Pain Treatment for Upper Back Pain
Pain is the body's way of signaling that something is wrong and requires attention. Ignoring pain can lead to the worsening of an injury or expedited progression of a disease. At Chiro Idaho Chiropractic, we prioritize your health and aim to relieve your pain, promoting overall wellness.
Here are a few services we offer:
1. Chiropractic Adjustments for Upper Back Pain
Our chiropractor applies gentle spinal adjustments to correct joint dysfunction, alleviate nerve compression, pinching, or rubbing that may cause pain. These adjustments also increase blood circulation, stimulating cellular healing and regeneration.
2. Spinal Decompression for Upper Back Pain
Spinal decompression alleviates built-up pressure on discs, muscles, and nerves without stretching or taxing the surrounding tissues, such as muscles and ligaments. This technique provides pain relief and enhances blood flow to promote healing.
3. Deep Tissue Laser Therapy for Upper Back Pain
Deep Tissue Laser Therapy utilizes a laser that penetrates deep into muscles and soft tissues, stimulating cell function, blood flow, and healing. It effectively alleviates acute and chronic pain.
