Do you suffer with mid-back pain?
A common injury we see in our clinics is acute mid back or thoracic spine pain with referral around into the ribs. This type of injury commonly occurs during twisting activities and unexpected movements when lifting or even twisting awkwardly when sneezing. Our patients come in complaining of sharp pain between the shoulder blades, associated with muscle spasm and pain referral. Pain is often increased with deep breathing or twisting motions. The main cause of this problem is injury to the small joints either side of the spine.
Risk factors for the development of this problem include:
Treatment for this injury includes mobilisation of the stiff and injured joints, massage, dry needling and stretching to help settle the affected area. A rehabilitation program is then devised to treat the risk factors and causes of the injury.
To help prevent this happening to you try these simple exercises.
If you do experience this type of injury please seek treatment as soon as possible, for the earlier treatment is provided – the better chance of a fast and full recovery. If you need help with your back pain – please give us a call on 6654 0244 and get your problems fixed NOW.
