|The Chiropractic Solution To Mid-Back Pain
Chiropractic is well known for its ability to relieve neck and low-back pain. But did you know that it also benefits those suffering from mid-back pain?
Mid-back pain ranges from twinges to tenderness and throbbing. Unlike low-back pain, however, which gets lots of press, achy middle backs don’t capture as much of the limelight.
The mid-back includes 12 pairs of ribs, 12 spinal bones (vertebrae) — each of which is attached to a rib — and a network of nerves, muscles, tendons and ligaments. These structures protect internal organs, including the heart, lungs, liver and spleen.
Chiropractic adjustments aren’t the only way to overcome mid-back pain. Chiropractors often prescribe specific exercises and may suggest physical therapy. They also provide education on proper ergonomics — in and out of the office — and relaxation techniques.
Don’t wait for pain to be your “wake up” call. Make an appointment today for a complete physical. Your mid-back and entire body will thank you!Dr. Barbara Smith
