The mid-back or thoracic region of the spine is less likely to experience pain than the cervical or lumbar regions. This portion of the spine is under less stress than the neck or lower back, but it can still be impacted by an injury or spinal degenerative disease. If you have back pain between the shoulders and lower ribs, Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, offers mid-back pain treatment to give you relief.

Causes of Mid-Back Pain

Most soreness or pain in the middle back region is caused by muscle or tendon strain. Overexertion can result in sore muscles near the shoulder blades that will dissipate with rest and recovery. When middle back pain lasts for a week or longer, there may be other problems impacting the thoracic spine than just muscle strain. Some of the common issues that cause ongoing or chronic mid-back pain include:

  • Spinal compression fractures
  • Spinal osteoarthritis
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Osteoporosis
  • Degenerative disc diseasev

Middle back conditions that create pain are often from damage to the thoracic spine. This can be caused by injury but is more likely to be degenerative in nature. Weakened bones, facet joints or spinal discs affected from disease can impact the mechanics of the middle back and result in pain. Since thoracic back pain is less common, it is also easier to diagnose and find the right mid-back pain treatment to offer relief.

Mid-back pain treatment depends on the source of pain. Injection therapies can often be used to relieve pain or strengthen the vertebrae. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic offers many conservative or minimally-invasive thoracic spine treatments that relieve pain and improve function at our clinic in Covington, GA. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for diagnosis and mid-back pain treatment.

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
