Common Reasons for Upper Back Pain

The reasons you develop upper back pain depend on your situation. Several factors contribute to the pain and identifying the cause of your pain helps our chiropractor determine the appropriate course of action for your treatment plan. Common causes of pain in your upper back include:

  • Injuries to the muscles
  • Sprains and strains
  • Whiplash
  • Pinched nerves
  • Poor posture, particularly when you work in an office environment
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Arthritis in the back
  • Overusing your muscles

The specific reasons for your pain impact the treatment strategy used to help alleviate your discomfort. In our clinic, we focus on identifying the cause before we develop a custom strategy for your recovery goals.

How Our Chiropractor Diagnoses Upper Back Pain

Our chiropractor diagnoses upper back pain by discussing your situation. We ask about your lifestyle and any accidents that may contribute to your pain. We also discuss your health and any complications with your health that may contribute to the situation. After learning about your medical history and the factors involved in your pain, we may use x-rays or other diagnostic tools to identify the specific injuries or problems with your back.

We focus on clarifying the cause of your pain before starting a treatment plan. By identifying the reasons you have pain in your upper back, we ensure that you have the care you need to recover.

Treating Your Pain in Fremont

Treating pain in your upper back in Fremont starts with the right strategy. In our clinic, we may use different treatments to help with your goals. We may suggest the use of chiropractic adjustments to improve your posture and spinal alignment. We also use decompression therapy to reduce pressure on a pinched nerve or on the nerves when you have a herniated disc.

In some situations, we use low light lasers, or a cold laser, to help with your symptoms. The laser helps your body heal by encouraging proper blood circulation and reducing inflammation in the area. We use treatments based on your specific injuries or concerns, so the specific strategy we use for your back may vary.
