Upper Back Pain FAQs

Upper back pain FAQs

Back pain is one of the most common problems we see in our clinic and this pain can develop due to a variety of issues. Understanding both the common causes and treatments can help patients and families in the Eden Prairie area. The trained professionals from Midwest Chiropractic and Wellness are here to help families with this common problem.

Common Causes of Upper Back Pain

If someone is suffering from upper back pain, there are a number of common reasons why. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Poor Posture: Poor posture at work is one of the most common causes of upper back pain. When someone has poor posture, the ligaments, muscles, and tendons start to stiffen up. This leads to pain and discomfort that can manifest in the upper back.
  • Overuse: Overuse is another common cause of pain in the upper back. When someone suffers an overuse injury, inflammation develops in the upper back. This leads to pain and discomfort.
  • Pinched Nerve: A pinched nerve can develop in the upper back as a result of the causes discussed above. This manifests as shooting or shock-like pain that runs throughout the shoulders and upper back. Fortunately, a trained chiropractor can help with this issue.

Treatment from a Trained Chiropractor

A trained chiropractor knows how to address these problems. A chiropractor will take the time to get to know the patient and identify the root cause of the issue. Then, a chiropractor can perform a series of manipulations or adjustments that will help correct posture and overuse issues. A chiropractor can also discuss corrective exercises and physical therapy if necessary.
