Mid Back Pain in Thunder Bay

woman with back pain at home officeIf you’re like many people, you sit at your desk for eight or more hours a day. Extended periods of sitting and reduced range of motion can contribute to mid-back discomfort. This pain is often combined with an upper cross syndrome, a condition characterized by tight neck flexors and chest muscles, with weak extensors in the upper and mid back.

The Importance of Posture Correction

Posture correction plays an essential role in treating mid-back pain. Massaging muscles may provide short-term relief, but without addressing the root cause of the problem—limited joint movement—you’re likely to experience long-term issues. We focus on getting your joints moving more freely while also incorporating exercises to strengthen your body into extension and reduce the tightness holding you in flexion.

The Value of Maintenance Chiropractic Care

Patients with mid back pain often experience chest tightness, heart palpitations, and digestive issues. Therefore, it becomes crucial to maintain regular movement. Our patients often put themselves on a maintenance plan every two to four weeks, keeping their spine moving well and helping them cope with daily postures.

Personalized Treatment Plans

We realize every person’s lifestyle and needs are unique. That’s why we offer personalized treatment plans that consider your current daily activities, goals, and stressors rather than merely focusing on age. Whether you lead a sedentary or active lifestyle, we tailor the program to fit your needs, setting you on a path of recovery and comfort.

Other Tips to Alleviate Your Mid Back Pain

Ergonomic adjustments

If you spend much time sitting, ensure your workstation is ergonomically set up. Your monitor should be at eye level, and your knees should be at a 90-degree angle with your feet flat on the floor.

Apply Heat or Cold

Heat therapy can relax muscles and improve blood circulation, while cold therapy can reduce inflammation and numb the pain. Use a warm towel or heating pad for heat therapy and an ice pack wrapped in cloth for cold therapy. Apply for 15-20 minutes at a time.

Stay Active

Regular physical activity can help prevent and relieve back pain. Activities like walking, swimming, or cycling promote flexibility and strength without putting too much strain on your back.
