Understanding Mid Back Pain


Mid-back pain is a common complaint among people who suffer from chronic or recurring back problems. It is often caused by repetitive strain on the mid-back region, including the thoracic spine and rib cage.

The muscles in the mid-back are responsible for bending and twisting. They work with other muscles to move your upper body and help you perform everyday activities such as reaching up to grab something or swinging a golf club. These muscles also stabilize your torso such that it doesn’t sway from side to side when you walk or run.

When one of these structures becomes damaged or injured, it can cause pain in your mid-back region that may spread into your shoulders and arms.

Here are some common causes of mid-back pain:

  • Poor posture
    If you slouch over your computer all day or slump on the couch after work, this can strain your spine. Over time, this can lead to muscle strain or spasms in the lower back muscles (erector spinae), which run along either side of the spine from the base of your neck down to the top of each buttock bone (sacrum).
  • Disc herniation
    A disc herniation occurs when one of the gel-like discs between two bones ruptures and pushes out into the spinal canal. This causes pressure on nearby nerves, which leads to pain and numbness in the arm or hand.

How A Chiropractor Diagnoses Mid Back Pain


Chiropractors use several different diagnostic tests to determine the cause of your mid-back pain. Some of these tests include:

  • Palpation
  • Arthrokinematics Testing

We discuss each test in detail below.

Chiropractors will gently feel along each vertebra for tenderness or inflammation. This helps us determine if there is any nerve irritation causing your mid-back pain.

Arthrokinematics Testing
This test measures motion at specific spinal levels and helps us determine if any motion restrictions could contribute to your mid-back symptoms.
