Mid Back Pain
Mid back pain is one of the most common complaints that patients report when they go t o see a chiropractor. The mid back area is called the “thoracic” spine. It is comprised of 12 spinal bones with a matching 12 pairs of ribs. If you experience pain or tightness/stiffness in your mid back and between your shoulder blades, see your chiropractor for conservative chiropractic care.
The mid back area is highly reactive and can compensate for the pelvis and lower back region or upper back and cervical spine area. Sitting at a computer or driving for long periods of time are two common origins of mid back-related pain.
