Upper/Mid-Back (Thoracic Spine) Pain

The fast-paced lifestyles of today have taken their toll on the backs of America. Currently, back pain is the number one cause of disability in those aged 19-45 and is the second leading cause of missed work days. Total annual costs for back pain in the US alone are estimated to be in excess of $60 billion.

A number of factors contributing to these statistics, including:

  • overall increases in work demands
  • overall decreases in physical activity
  • increases in prolonged sitting (at the desk, in the car, in front of the television)
  • lack of periodic spinal checkups and preventative care
  • failure to seek immediate care following injury
  • failure to receive adequate treatment for back injuries (i.e. medications only without proper rehabilitation of tissues)
  • poor postural habits and lifting techniques
  • Dowager's Hump
