Upper and middle back pain encompasses anything from the base of your neck to the bottom of your rib cage. This area is called the thoracic spine.
Upper back pain isn’t that common of a spinal disorder, but it can really hurt. Usually, upper back pain is a result of muscle pain or joint dysfunction. The bones in this area of the back aren’t designed to move as much as the bones in the lower back or neck. The upper and middle back is designed to keep your back stable (with help from your ribs) and protect your organs, especially your heart and lungs.
We see a lot of upper back pain as a result of working at a computer most of the day.
