Mid-Back Pain

Mid-back pain, also known as thoracic pain, can significantly impact your daily life, making simple tasks uncomfortable and challenging. Situated between the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions, the thoracic spine plays a crucial role in supporting the upper body and facilitating movement.

Causes of Mid-Back Pain

  • Poor posture/spinal alignment
  • Muscle strain or overuse
  • Trauma or injury
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Osteoarthritis/Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Scoliosis
  • Stress and tension
  • Rib or Rib Head Dysfunction


One of the most common causes that we see is poor posture, particularly in today’s sedentary lifestyle where many spend long hours sitting at desks or hunched over electronic devices. This prolonged poor posture can strain the muscles and ligaments in the mid-back, leading to stiffness, tension, and pain. This can sometimes radiate around the ribcage to the front of the thoracic cage causing front rib and chest pain.

Often a common cause of mid-back pain that we see in patients is mechanical in nature. This mean the joints either stop moving properly or there are changes in the proper alignment of the spinal bones. This causes pain and stiffness, decreased range of motion, muscle spasms or tightness, inflammation, and eventually this can cause the joints to wear down prematurely. This can irritate nearby spinal nerves.

Identifying the underlying cause of your pain is essential for developing an effective treatment plan tailored to the individual’s needs and addressing the root of the problem.

Every patient receives a thorough exam, including all necessary testing: thermographic nerve scan, orthopedic and neurological testing, posture assessment, in-office digital x-rays (if necessary), and other specialized testing. We use ‘high-tech’ methods for diagnosis and treatment, but don’t worry, we will never abandon the ‘old-fashioned’ skills of careful listening and personal attention.

Following your examination, we’ll provide you with a detailed report of our findings. Based on this information, we’ll develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific condition, treatment preferences, and goals.

Our treatment approach encompasses spinal adjustments, muscle therapy, and rehabilitation exercises and stretches to enhance your posture and promote an efficient recovery from your mid-back pain.
