Are you suffering from thoracic back pain or middle back pain?

Are you finding that treatment such as chiropractic, massage and physical therapy can sometimes make your pain feel worse or only provide short term temporary relief only for the pain to return once more?

If you are, this is extremely common with patients suffering from thoracic back pain or middle back pain and there is good reason for this.

Thoracic back pain is one of the most misunderstood conditions of the human body. Doctors, practitioners even back specialists can get confused with when it comes to the thoracic spine, requesting scan after scan that continue show no pathological reason for the pain. Some doctors and specialists of their field are so brazen to tell their thoracic back pain sufferer that because the scans show nothing then the pain must be all in their head and they must learn to live with it.

What makes thoracic back pain very different is that the pain is derived from the muscles of the thoracic region that attach onto the rib cage and thoracic spine. What makes it even more unique is the muscular pain is completely different to say lower back pain or neck pain where the muscles become jammed (shortened and contracted).  The muscles that erect the spine become elongated/ lengthened, akin to a guitar string pulled tighter at either end, whereas traditional muscular tension is the complete opposite, with the fibers shortening and contracting.

The problem with the standard approach to thoracic back pain or middle back pain is that modalities can use techniques designed to relax or lengthened shortened muscles. Massage, physical therapy, chiropractic, osteopathic, even acupuncture is all dedicated to alleviating or relieving tension or tight and taut muscular tissue.

The standard approach can fail middle back pain or thoracic back pain sufferers. Treating elongated (guitar string under tension) muscles that erect the spine in the same way they would a muscle that was short and contracted. This often makes the patient feel worse, and commonly results in a few hours relief purely from the heat and blood flow creating from the treatment that blocks localized pain receptors.

If you suffer from chronic thoracic back-pain you need a specialist who understands the difference between a lengthened muscle and a shortened muscle and more importantly knows how to address your pain and ensure it stays away permanently.

Postural imbalances are one of the underlying causes for thoracic back-pain and they place the body in a compromised position that lengthens the gap between the origin and insertion of the thoracic muscle groups. Effectively treating tight (shortened muscles) and effectively strengthening weak (lengthened muscles) to restore neuromuscular symmetry is one way to permanently eradicate chronic thoracic back pain.
