Spinal health is directly related to one’s posture. Middle back pain usually stems from a postural issue. If our muscles are too weak or tight, it can distort the shape of our spine. Even small changes can cause pressure on nerves and the spinal cord, which can cause dysfunction in the nervous system. Middle back pain is a chronic problem that starts young and worsens with time.
Misalignment of a vertebra or segment in the spine causes nerve pressure that can cause symptoms or stress. Since subluxations don’t always cause pain, proactive chiropractic treatment is essential. Only chiropractors are trained experts at identifying and removing subluxation.
Several muscles in the middle back around the shoulder blades perform various movements for the shoulder. This leads to increased opportunities for muscles to get strained or partial fiber damage, creating soreness and inflammation. Stretching and various exercises can help speed up recovery time.
Commonly referred to as “rib out of place,” rib subluxation is the partial dislocation of the joint between the rib and spine. It creates sharp pain when expanding the ribcage and breathing in. Chiropractic is highly effective at providing instant relief.
People are born with scoliosis. It is caused when lateral curvatures in the spine distort posture and affect joints asymmetrically. It can cause pain but doesn’t always cause symptoms. Severe cases need more invasive and interventional care.
