What is Mid Back Pain?

Mid back pain is a common condition caused by stiffness in the thoracic spine. That area of the spine is one of the most difficult parts of the body to effectively stretch, since it covers the point between the base of the neck and the midpoint of the back. When that middle region of the back is overly stiff, it can cause patients to experience discomfort and pain between their shoulder blades. In some cases, this condition can put pressure on the lower back as well. Patients may even experience headaches.

The good news is that osteopathic care can be one of the most effective holistic options for treating pain occurring in the mid back region. As with all conditions of the spine, early diagnosis is an important part of ensuring a successful treatment outcome.

What Causes this Condition?

Pain in the mid back region can have many causes, but most modern cases occur as a result of lifestyle and how we work. Many people spend an excessive amount of time in their cars, either commuting or traveling. At work, millions of people are seated in one position for hours at a time, staring at computer screens or working on keyboards. Far too few of them focus on proper posture, and many lack the ergonomic furnishings needed to minimize the risk of stiffness in the thoracic spine.

In addition, this area of the body can be susceptible to injury. This is especially true for athletes or others who engage in strenuous activity. Since this part of the back is responsible for much of the spinal extension and rotation active people engage in throughout the day, it is often more prone to becoming stiff over time.

What Are the Symptoms of Mid Back Pain?

Mid back pain symptoms can present in a variety of ways, including many that are common in other back-related conditions. Some of those symptoms can include:

  • Dull pain in the middle of the back
  • Aching, tired muscles
  • Sharp pain
  • Tight muscles and general stiffness in the back
  • A burning sensation
  • Pain or discomfort between the shoulder blades
  • Headaches
  • Loss of mobility or difficulty twisting, bending, or extending the back
