Upper back pain is a very common ailment that can be caused by a variety of things. Poor posture, muscle strain, and even arthritis can all lead to upper back pain. Treatment for upper back pain will vary depending on the underlying cause. Sometimes simple steps like improving your posture or using a heating pad can help to ease the pain. In more severe cases, however, you may need to see a doctor or physical therapist for further treatment.
Upper back pain can manifest itself in several different ways. Common symptoms include stiffness, tightness and general discomfort in the shoulder blades and chest areas, as well as difficulty with movement due to the soreness. In more serious cases, numbness or tingling may be present which indicates nerve compression from a tightened muscle group. Muscle spasms and twitching are also indications of an issue requiring medical attention that can lead to chronic back pain over time.
Upper back pain can range from uncomfortable to excruciating, making it difficult to stay active and find relief. Fortunately, there are a variety of treatment options available, depending on the cause and severity of symptoms. For example, chiropractic care is a very popular way to treat acute or chronic upper back pain by adjusting postural alignment and reducing muscle tension; physiotherapy often includes therapeutic exercises such as stretching, strengthening and aerobic conditioning, whereas massage therapy is known for its ability to reduce inflammation and relax tense muscles. Regardless of the intervention chosen, patient education can be an extremely effective tool in managing upper back pain because understanding why the injury occurred in the first place could help prevent future episodes.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.
I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.
So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
