Upper Back Pain | Treatment from Chiropractor in Twin Falls, ID
Upper back pain is a little bit less common than lower back pain, but just as difficult to deal with. Living with chronic upper back pain can quickly diminish your quality of life, make it difficult to feel comfortable, even in simple situations such as sitting or standing, and can be difficult to treat without addressing the underlying condition. Our chiropractor understands the importance of finding the root cause of your upper back pain and provides effective treatment.
At Eastland Chiropractic in Twin Falls, ID, we make it our mission to help our clients find relief from all types of ailments, including upper back pain. Our chiropractor has ample experience in helping patients get the care they need to feel relief, treat their symptoms instead of masking them, and get rid of their upper back pain for good.
Causes of Upper Back Pain
If you're suffering from upper back pain, the cause can be both muscular and skeletal in nature. Certain muscle-related injuries can lead to upper back pain. These include a pulled upper back muscle, or sore muscles in the upper back due to tension. This type of upper back pain can be alleviated with rest, but can quickly come back if the underlying injury is not treated.
Other issues related to poor spinal health can also cause upper back pain. This includes previous injuries such as whiplash that can aggravate the spine and take it out of alignment. Scoliosis and misaligned spine can also lead to poor posture, which can directly cause upper back pain.
Although less common, herniated discs and bulging discs of the vertebrae can also lead to upper back pain.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
Our chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam in order to determine the root cause of your back pain. They will find the best treatment to help alleviate your symptoms based on your specific injury.
For instance, they might conduct manual adjustments of the spine if your pain is due to a misalignment of the spine. They can also conduct massage therapy to alleviate tense and sore muscles of the upper back.
For herniated and bulging discs, spinal decompression therapy to gently stretch the spine can also be effective. Our trained chiropractor will determine which of these treatments will be the most effective for your upper back pain.
