Muscular, Mid-Back Pain Northbrook IL

Are you suffering from mid-back pain in Northbrook, IL? Did you know chiropractic adjustments can provide a solution? While lower back pain is much more common, middle back pain or thoracic back pain is still a common complaint when patients first visit our Northbrook chiropractic clinic. The bones in the middle back area (base of neck to bottom of rib cage) are much more stable and don’t flex as much as the lower back and neck. This typically results in less injuries to the area. When mid-back pain does occur there are quite a variety of causes that could be contributing to the pain.

Man With Middle Back PainMiddle back pain causes:

  • Herniated Disc
  • Poor Posture
  • Fracture
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Misalignment of a Rib
  • Working Conditions
    • sitting/slouching for prolonged periods of time (computer desk work)
    • bending over often (dentists, chiropractors)
    • awkward daily positions (mechanics)

Having/practicing good posture cannot be stressed enough. Good posture puts the least amount of strain on the back, connecting muscles and spine. Chiropractic adjustments can relieve the pain around the spine and help you get back to functioning properly.

Chiropractic approach to mid-back pain

The most important step in treating middle back pain is finding the root cause. This is what our chiropractic clinic does best. Is it a disc bulge? Herniation? Stenosis? Did you twist behind you too quickly? These are the questions that determine a case and what we help discover. Once a cause is found, the doctor will tailor a care plan that fits you specifically. It may include chiropractic adjustments, exercise rehabilitation, soft tissue therapy and/or other advanced methods to improve your quality of life. All of our procedures are safe, non-invasive, and effective. We believe the first step in spinal care should be a conservative one.
