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.


Symptoms of mid back pain may range from muscle tightness and spasms, trigger points, restricted range of motion when bending or twisting, and sharp or stabbing pains from the back, radiating to the front. The rib cage may also become distorted causing symptoms that mimic respiratory or cardiac problems such as shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat. Get evaluated by a chiropractor today if you are experiencing mid back pain. Chiropractors specialize in the spine and musculoskeletal system and its biomechanical functions.
