Chiropractic for Middle Back Pain Part II: Less Common Causes

Chiropractic for Middle Back Pain Part II:  Less Common Causes

Middle back pain is a common reason why patients seek chiropractic care.  Fortunately, chiropractic is highly effective in correcting most causes of middle back pain.

Most cases of pain in the middle back are associated with a widespread condition called vertebral subluxation.  This occurs when spinal movement is restricted or spinal bones (vertebrae) become slightly misaligned.  Doctors of chiropractic correct vertebral subluxations with gentle and effective maneuvers called chiropractic adjustments.

The less common causes of middle back pain include:

  • Fracture
  • Herniated disc
  • Organ problems

Here are some tips for avoiding middle back pain.

Maintain regular chiropractic visits to keep your back pain-free and achieve optimal health.

If you play sports, check your form.  Proper form in any sport protects muscles and joints by minimizing overuse and over-extension.

Keep your core muscles (the chest, spine and pelvis) strong so that they can stabilize your spine.  Yoga and Pilates are two great practices for enhancing core strength.

Practice sound ergonomics to protect your back.Dr. Barbara Smith
