Upper Back Pain

Upper Back Pain Relief and Injury Treatment with Your San Antonio Chiropractor

The upper back or thoracic spine involves 12 vertebrae linked to the rib cage, so injury here isn't as common as lower back or cervical (neck) spine pain and injury. If you hurt here, seek treatment promptly with your San Antonio chiropractor at Pinnacle Wellness, so you can get the relief and recovery you need to resume your active lifestyle.

Causes of Upper Back Pain: From Car Accident Injury to Pregnancy and More

Our chiropractors in San Antonio treat many cases of upper back pain and injury. Successful recovery depends on treating the root causes, which might include:

Car accident or sports injury—Sudden impact from a car accident or sports injury can cause muscle, ligament and tendon strains in the neck and upper back.

Pregnancy—Many pregnant women experience lower and upper back pain as their center of gravity shifts. Drug-free chiropractic care during pregnancy can help the body adjust to these changes for less pain.

Poor posture—Many people experience neck and upper back pain from poorly-arranged computer desks or slouching over mobile devices. This causes “tech neck”, which we address in this YouTube tutorial.

Your San Antonio chiropractor can diagnose and provide the appropriate treatment that addresses your needs for upper back pain relief through chiropractic care and other complementary treatment options.

Chiropractic Care Provides Upper Back Pain Relief and Recovery

Chiropractic care is ideal for upper back pain and injury treatment. Your chiropractor can apply gentle, precise spinal adjustments to bring vertebrae back into alignment, relieving pinched nerves and balancing strained soft tissues. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor may also recommend the following treatment options to accelerate your recovery:

Massage therapy—Lowers inflammation, relieves musculoskeletal tensions and provides natural pain relief 

Deep tissue laser therapy—Regenerates damaged tissue at the cellular level, reduces inflammation and relieves pain with cold laser light 

Ergonomic lifestyle adjustments—Our chiropractor will show you different ways of using your tech and other daily ergonomic adjustments to prevent future upper back problems.

  • "If you have back and/or neck trouble and have never been to a chiropractor before, then this is the place for you. I was referred here by my wife who has been seeing the doctors for several years. Since starting my adjustments I sleep better and feel better all around, and no it doesn't hurt. Currently I am recovering from tennis elbow and bursitis which the doctors are helping me recover by using a massager on my arm when I visit, even my physical therapist was glad they were helping out."

Our kiddos get adjusted too and for our infant it helped him to crawl properly when he was having difficulties or crawling abnormally. It is a vital part of our healthiness and we would recommend them to everyone!"
