Upper back pain – Overview

The upper back is the area below the cervical spine and above the lumbar spine. It’s the area that consists of the thoracic spine and muscles. The upper back is attached to the ribs as well. So the movement is very restricted and that is why the upper back is less prone to injuries and pain.

But if you lift heavy objects, get an injury, or have poor posture then you can experience upper backbone pain. This pain is usually mild and can be treated with home remedies and over the counter medicines. This is because upper back pain usually occurs due to muscle strains. In rare cases, you can hurt your thoracic spine (due to severe injuries such as falls) and this pain takes a few weeks to months. You will need proper medical care and treatment along with exercises and changes in your lifestyle.

So if you experience mild upper back pain then it’s better to practice home remedies as it goes away within days. But if you feel like the pain is increasing along with other symptoms (mentioned below) then it’s better to get upper back pain treatment.

Upper back pain types

It’s really important to know what type of upper back pain you have for proper care and treatment.

Upper back muscle pain

The muscles in the upper back get sprained and strained, causing pain.

Upper middle back pain

The pain travels from your upper back to the middle portion of the back.

Upper back pain when breathing

This type of back pain increases when you breathe deeply. It can also accelerate when you move or stretch upwards.

Upper back pain between shoulder blades

This pain resides just on the upper half of your back. This can be due to muscular strain or spine injury.

    Upper back ache causes

    Upper back pain can be caused due to many reasons such as:

    • Muscular injury
    • Spine injury
    • Poor posture
    • Wearing backpack for too long
    • Twisting
    • Repetitive movements
    • Neck injury
    • Lifting weight improperly
    • Arthritis
    • Osteoporosis
    • Fracture

    Upper back pain symptoms

    Symptoms depend upon the type of back pain you’re having and it’s intensity. You might experience:

    • Pain
    • Inflammation
    • Tightness
    • Headache
    • Tenderness
    • Numbness
    • Incontinence (involuntary bowel and bladder leakage). This happens in case any nerve gets damaged

    Upper back pain treatment options

    Once the cause is known and your upper back pain is diagnosed, the next step is upper back pain treatment. Although as said earlier, if the pain is mild, you can easily soothe it by taking a lot of rest, using an ice pack and warm pack alternatively, taking over-the-counter painkillers such as ibuprofen. These home remedies along with changing your posture and stretching the body mildly can really help you get rid of the pain.

    But if you experience a sudden pain that is increasing with every passing day, then you surely need medical help. You should visit a doctor who’ll decide the course of your treatment based on your condition. The treatment may include medicines, therapy, and in rare cases surgery.
