Magnolia Wellness Center Offers Relief from Upper Back Pain
Upper back pain can affect the neck, shoulders, and upper pain, making everyday tasks more difficult. Chiropractic techniques offer a drug-free, non-invasive method of dealing with these problems quickly and effectively. At Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, FL, we can provide a number of techniques to relieve upper back pain.
Symptoms of Upper Back Dysfunction
Upper back pain can be a crick in the center of the back, pain under the shoulder blade, pain that radiates into the shoulder, or discomfort and poor mobility in the neck. This area, which consists of 12 bones, can be subject to joint dysfunction and muscle irritation. Chiropractic treatment can be used to reduce discomfort and improve function in the upper spine.
Causes of Upper Back Pain
Improper lifting is a common cause of upper back problems. Poor posture is another common problem. Overuse from moving furniture, doing home remodeling, or performing overhead tasks may result in strains of the muscles and other structures in the back. These actions can lead to herniated discs in the upper back, tears in the ligaments, or muscle sprains. In some cases, the upper back may receive trauma from auto accidents, falls, and sports activities. Arthritis of the upper spine can also occur.
Chiropractic Techniques Can Relieve Upper Back Discomfort
Our chiropractor takes a thorough medical history and does an examination to understand the source of every patient’s upper back pain. Manual adjustment is generally done to re-align spinal structures for more efficient movement. Heat and ice therapy helps to soothe inflammation in tissues and improve comfort levels. Corrective exercises may be recommended to strengthen the supporting muscles of the back. Massage therapy relieves stiffness in muscles and improve flexibility. If necessary, nerve conduction techniques and acupuncture can be used to relieve discomfort. Your Tallahassee chiropractor will design a care plan for your individual needs. Our chiropractor can also advise you on ergonomic adjustments in your home and work environment to prevent re-injury of upper back structures.
