Pain in the mid-back or thoracic spine is a condition healthcare providers are seeing due to the nature of an increasing numbar of desk jobs held by patients. The thoracic spine is by design, supposed to be mobile between a stable cervical and lumbar spine. Often, patients assume a slumped forward posture which increases the curvature of the spine in the mid back. Gravity acts on the mid back causing constant tension on the muscle close to the spine in the same areas. Overtime, these muscles and joints become stiff and tight restricting movement in the area of the mid back.
Champion Physical Therapy can assign the appropriate treatment pain to alleviate mid back pain. In addition, ask your therapist about recommendations for your work station to improve ergonomics.
