Mechanical Strain: Mid Back

Mid back pain can be a condition of daily strain and poor posture that results in restriction of muscle along the spine and adjacent ribs. Any sense of anxiety with strain to the heart and respiration can also affect the mid back.

The mid back is the focal point of neck and shoulder attachment. Muscle from the low back on both the front and back of the spine anchor here. The Diaphram can also add tension and pull from the front. Strain from the rib cage can add torsion of the joint along the thoracic spine.

This post is intended for clients who have had a consult and are looking to refresh their minds about what was discussed.
