Upper Back Pain Relief – Trigger Points & Muscle Imbalances

upper back painWhile lower back pain and neck pain tend to get the most attention because they’re far more common, getting upper back pain relief is every bit as important for those suffering from it.

Upper back pain is less common mainly because your thoracic spine is much more stable than other areas of your back and neck.

Your thoracic spine consists of the 12 vertebrae in your upper back that your ribs connect to – a pair to each vertebra. Since the top nine pairs of ribs curve around to join in the front at your breastbone, mobility is greatly limited while this part of your spine is better protected against injury and degeneration.

Outside of an accident or other form of trauma, most upper back pain is some form of myofascial pain. Thankfully, upper back pain relief is within reach for almost anyone once you address the two primary sources of upper back myofascial pain.

This leads to unnatural postures, or postural dysfunctions, as the tighter muscles continually pull your body in one direction and the weakened stretched out muscles fail to maintain their position.

Out of the four primary postural dysfunctions, a forward head posture is the one most commonly associated with upper back pain.
