Mid Back Pain – The Cause and Options in Merrill WI


Mid Back Pain – The Cause and Options in Merrill WI

Mid-back pain or pain between the shoulder blades is a very common problem. It is especially common for people that work with their hands out in front of their body.

A great example of that is computer work. When your hands are on a keyboard for hours each day you put additional stress on your mid back. The shoulders rolled forward position that tends to occur can cause misalignments in the mid-back area.

The Common Path

Most people experiencing mid back pain just live with it. They let years go by without normal motion or function in their spine. This lack of normal motion can have serious impacts on the discs or pads between the spinal bones.

The discs are very strong, but they rely on normal motion to remain stable and healthy. When normal motion is lost the discs can become deformed and weakened eventually leading to issues like:

  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Kyphosis or Hunchback
  • Herniated Discs
  • Compression Fractures

A Better Path

Most of us understand the importance of taking care of our teeth. Our teeth our visible so we’re more conscious of the need for care.

Our spines are hidden inside our bodies. We don’t see the misalignments or the degeneration as it begins to occur. It’s easy for us to ignore until the problem is very advanced.

Chiropractic care gives all of us the opportunity to take care of our spine as well as we take care of our teeth. The difference is that your spine protects the most important system in your body. The nervous system. We can live without a tooth, but life becomes almost unlivable when our spinal health is gone.
