Upper back pain that occurs along with numbness or weakness in the arms can indicate a more serious problem and requires immediate medical attention. Other upper back pain symptoms include:

    • Pain that is either dull or sharp
    • Pain that is focused on a single point or is spread over a larger area

Pain that may increase with certain movements
Tightness or stiffness of the shoulders
Tension in the muscles of the neck

It is important to identify the underlying cause of your upper back pain so that the spine specialist can create a plan that will provide relief, as well as strengthen the muscles of your upper back to facilitate long-term recovery. Some of the common causes of upper back pain are:

  • Poor posture, which results in muscle strain and/or ligament injury
  • Myofascial pain is a chronic condition that causes inflammation of the fascia (the connective tissue that covers the muscles)
  • Sports related injuries
  • Conditions such as osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease
  • Curvature of the spine caused by conditions such as scoliosis or kyphosis

The most important thing about back pain is an accurate and timely diagnosis. Once that’s done:

    • For temporary pain relief: Pain-killers, Yoga Stretches and Hot packs can provide temporary relief. Bed rest is contraindicated in most cases.
    • For reducing swelling or inflammation in the area : Use an Ice pack or cold pack in case you see swelling. Cell Repair Technology using FSM treatment can help reduce pain and inflammation while activating repair
    • For long-term improvement: Spine rehabilitation is recommended. Guided physiotherapy and rehabilitation programmes under spine specialists doctor have proven effective.
    • In extreme cases: Spine Surgery may be recommended (less than 5% such cases)

Every back pain case is different and so is the treatment for it. If left untreated it can get worse over time. It is best you consult a spine specialist as soon as pain symptoms appear.
