That constant tightness and strain on the upper back is far from uncommon.
People are constantly putting themselves in postures and situations where the body is forced to tighten up and protect itself.
Doing this constantly over a period of time will force someone into chronic mid and upper back tightness.
Tightness over time will cause bad posture and what happens is that person develops a hump later on in life.
Subluxations in the lower neck and mid to upper back not only cause pain, but can cause more severe problems in other parts of the body.
Most stretch or strengthen their back when it is tight and sore.
This can be good, if the body is not out of alignment.
If it is out of alignment strengthening the back is like building a sky scrapper on a poor foundation.
Instead of treating the effects of subluxations in the spine we get to the cause of the problem.
We help many people with mid and upper back tightness and would love to discuss your specific issue and how Chiropractic may help.
