Mid-Back Pain Treatment

Take Our Back Pain Quiz

The middle back is the region of the back between the ribcage and the base of the neck. It houses the thoracic spine, the largest portion of the spine and the only part that’s attached to the ribcage. The middle back is vital, but also sees a tremendous amount of use. Because of its size and the amount of stress we tend to put on it every day, there are many ways that we can hurt our middle backs and just as many ways to experience pain after injury. At Optimize Chiropractic, we can treat your mid-back pain, relieve your tension, and help you enjoy life again.
