If you are like most people, you sit at a desk all day. Whether it is at work or home, you may suffer from mid-back pain as a result of an injury or sitting in the same position for extended periods. If you are experiencing back pain and live in or around Woodland, Madison, Esparto, or Davis, contact Phillips Chiropractic to schedule an appointment with Dr. Phillips.
Causes of Mid-Back Pain
There are many potential causes of mid-back pain, but some of the most common include:
1. Poor Posture
When you slouch or hunch over at your desk, you are putting unnecessary stress on your mid-back muscles. This can lead to pain and discomfort over time.
2. Work Injuries Due to Heavy Lifting
If you work in a manual labor job, you may be more susceptible to a work injury that can cause mid-back pain. This is especially true if you are not using the correct lifting techniques.
3. Poor Sleeping Habits
If you sleep on your stomach or in a twisted position, it can lead to mid-back pain.
4. Auto Accidents
If you get an auto accident injury, you may experience pain in your mid-back due to the sudden impact.
5. Diseases and Disorders
Certain diseases and disorders, such as arthritis, can cause pain in the mid-back. Other conditions such as spinal stenosis or a herniated disc can lead to this type of pain.
Chiropractic Care for Mid-Back Pain
There are many different techniques that our chiropractor uses for mid-back pain. They include:
This is a hands-on technique that uses force to move specific joints in the spine. We often use this technique to relieve pain and stiffness.
Massage therapy is a treatment that loosens tense muscles and improves blood circulation in your mid-back area.
This involves gentle movements of the spine and joints to improve mobility and range of motion.
This treatment uses electrical currents to help reduce pain and inflammation.
Ultrasound therapy uses high-frequency sound waves to promote healing and relieve pain.
