Upper back pain is considered pain anywhere from the bottom of the rib cage to the base of the neck. It’s not as common as lower back pain but can still cause a substantial amount of discomfort. Symptoms include:
Numbness in limbs
Our back is not to take for granted; basic functions like sleeping, sitting, standing, and walking are not the same with upper back pain. It’s important to note that there are many different causes to upper back pain. These can include myofascial pain (most common), joint dysfunction, herniated disc, overuse or muscle strain, improper posture, and osteoarthritis. Many of these causes can – and should – be treated with non-surgical treatments. Too often, people resort to thinking they need surgery when that is just not the case. Here at Unity Spine & Joint, we have helped many patients avoid back surgery and the bed rest and physical therapy that comes along with it.
