Mid-Back Madness – What’s Causing Your Pain?

One of the most common pains adults complain of is back pain. Daily activities such as improper lifting, poor posture, or exercise often set off pain that can last for hours, days or weeks. Pain sources can range from muscle spasms, bulging discs, disc degeneration, fractures or even a broken back. It is vital that you seek treatment so that the underlying problem can be diagnosed. Dr. Moe Abtahi of the Family Chiropractic and Spinal Health Care Center of Ramsey, N.J., performs physical exams daily for patients experiencing back pain. He states, “When your pain gets worse if you move a certain way, whether it stems from a single point or a number of sources, we can minimize and work to eliminate your suffering.”

Dr. Abtahi shared that many of his patients experience mid-back pain. “The area of the spine that starts below the neck and ends at the bottom of the rib cage, known as mid-back, is an area that often takes on a lot.” Dr. Abtahi states this area compensates for pain in the lower back and neck problems. “There are a lot of nerves in this area as well that can be affected by car accidents, sports injuries, and even digestive disorders can cause malfunctions.”

The Family Chiropractic and Spinal Health Care Center assists patients so that they will gain the relief that is possible once the spine has been correctly aligned. The staff can pinpoint the patient’s pain triggers and personally advise one how to keep moving. They recommend using ice after treatment and to be soon as soon as possible after the pain begins. Dr. Abtahi notes that when one is in pain, even one’s mood can be affected. “Needless suffering is what we most caution about,” he said.
