Also known as thoracic spine pain, upper back pain may occur on its own, or with lower (lumbar) and/or neck (cervical) regions of the spine. Herniated discs, compression fractures and postural disorders are the most common causes of upper back pain.
Symptoms of back pain may include:
Pain with prolonged standing or walking
Pain with bending, twisting, sneezing, coughing or laughing

Will I have back pain all my life now?
Many people with back pain are able to resume their normal activities after treatment. You’ll want to speak with a SpineOne physician to strategize your particular treatment plan and get back into the swing of things.
What can I do to relieve the back pain at home?
Depending upon the underlying cause and the severity of your back pain, there are a number of things that you can do to help with your pain. We highly recommend talking with your doctor and physical therapist on the exercises, stretching and activities that can help alleviate your back pain.
How long will it take for the pain to stop?
Most patients want to know how long it may take for them to feel better during treatment. Fact is, there are a number of variables that will effect a patient’s recovery time including the underlying cause of the neck pain, the physical therapy regimen, how a patient responds to the treatment, and if the patient is following the doctor/physical therapist’s advice on physical activities.
