- Compression fracture
Determining the source of your upper back pain is the first step in determining a path toward relief.
When to Seek Care for Upper Back Pain
Some minor cases of upper back pain will cease after a few days of self-care. However, if your back pain lingers or is severe enough to prevent normal activities, it's time to book an appointment with a chiropractor like Dr. Miller or Dr. Awadallah at Chiro-Med Health & Wellness Centers. Left untreated, upper back pain can become chronic and lead to long-term immobility.
It's also important to note that living with upper back pain can keep you from embracing an active and healthy lifestyle. This can bring on a cascade of negative health outcomes. Working with a spine specialist is a great way to prevent future pain and permanently improve your health.
