Mid Back Pain
Are you suffering from mid-back pain in Northbrook, IL? Did you know that chiropractic adjustments might help? While lower back pain is much more prevalent, middle back or thoracic back discomfort is still a frequent problem when patients come to our Northbrook chiropractic office. The center back bones (base of the neck to the bottom of the rib cage) are less flexible than those in the lower back and neck. As a result, this typically avoids injuries to that region. When mid-back discomfort strikes, there are numerous reasons why it might be happening.
Middle back pain causes:
- Herniated Disc
- Poor Posture
- 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)
The importance of maintaining good posture cannot be overstated. The least amount of stress is placed on the back, connecting muscles, and spine when you have excellent posture. Chiropractic adjustments can assist with pain around the spine and help you return to normal functioning.
The chiropractic approach to mid-back pain
The first step in treating middle back pain is identifying the source of the problem. This is where our chiropractic clinic excels. Is it a disc bulge, a herniation, stenosis, or did you twist behind you too quickly? These are two significant questions that need to be answered to establish a case. If a cause is found, your doctor will create a treatment plan that is custom-made for you. It might include chiropractic treatments, exercise rehabilitation, soft tissue treatment, and/or other innovative methods to improve your quality of life. All of our techniques are safe, non-invasive, and beneficial. We believe the first step in spinal care should be a conservative one.
