Are You Dealing With Mid Back Pain?

Watch this video to learn more about how back pain forms.

Understanding The Anatomy Of Mid Back Pain

Your spine is formed by a set of 24 bones that are stacked on top of each other with a soft "disc" between each segment to allow for flexibility.

In a normal and healthy back, each joint in your spine should move freely and independently.

Imagine a normal spine acting like a large spring that may freely move in all directions as a visual aid. A joint limitation in your spine is like having a portion of that spring fuse together. The spring may still be able to move as a whole, but a section of it is broken.

Understanding The Causes Of Joint Restrictions.

Joint restrictions can develop in a number of different ways.

In some situations, they are formed by the individual suffering from an accident or injury. In other cases, they develop from a repetitive strain or through poor posture. Being overweight, smoking, strenuous work, and emotional stress can increase the risk of you suffering from problems.

Swelling and inflammation are frequently present in limited joints, which causes the muscles to guard against further restriction. A joint restriction in one part of your spine might have an adverse effect on other areas of your back or your back as a whole since your spine functions as a unit and not as separate components. The best way to visualise this scenario is as a rowboat with many oarsmen on each side. The other rowers may become overworked and under stress when one of them leaves.

When To Contact A Professional About A Joint Restriction.

Joint restrictions most commonly cause the impacted area to experience tenderness and discomfort.

You may notice that you do not have your full range of motion. In some situations, movement may increase your discomfort.

Your rib cage is frequently the first area of pain from a limited joint, followed by your spine. Always be sure to get in touch with us if you suffer any flu-like symptoms, such as indigestion, a persistent cough, shortness of breath, or chest pain. Arthritis is believed to be caused by long-term constraints, much like how a car's slightly misaligned wheel causes the tire to wear out too quickly.
