Upper Back Pain FAQs

Upper back pain can have a severe negative impact on your life. It can reduce your mobility, lower your mood, and leave you unable to fulfill your obligations throughout your everyday life. At Maple Grove Family Chiropractic in Maple Grove, we are here to help you find relief from your upper back pain.


What Causes Upper Back Pain?

There are many causes of upper back pain. Injuries are very common. A car accident or sports injury can result in damage to the soft tissue in the upper back, neck, and shoulders. If the muscles, tendons, and ligaments are injured, you will likely have lingering pain in that area. Certain lifestyle habits can cause upper back pain as well. If you are sitting at a computer all day for work, you are likely putting strain on your upper back. Too much of this can result in pain.

Treating Upper Back Pain

If you want to treat upper back pain at home, there are some techniques you can try. Fix your posture when you are sitting at your computer. If you are slouching, you are putting undue pressure on the muscles in and around your upper back, which will lead to pain. You should also make sure you have a healthy lifestyle. A good exercise routine, nutritious food, and a healthy sleep schedule can go a long way toward improving your health. Make sure that you keep these healthy habits up, even when you are in pain. They will keep the pain from getting worse and help your body heal.

Chiropractic Care for Upper Back Pain

A chiropractor will be able to create a personalized treatment plan for you. We will do a full examination and look at your medical history to determine the exact cause of pain. This will give us the information we need to put together a good treatment plan. This treatment plan will likely include things like spinal alignment, physical therapy, and massage therapy. We may offer other specialized therapies as well.

If you need help establishing healthy habits, your chiropractor can provide information on things like nutrition, exercise, and stress management. This will help you set up a healthy foundation for overall wellness in your life.

  • "I visited Dr. Laura after having tension headaches for several months. After the first adjustment, I had instant relief! I have since visited her practice for acupuncture and had the best massage I've ever experienced from Sarah. Dr. Laura is exceptionally knowledgeable in her field, and I highly recommend her!"

  • "Dr. Laura Zaker has helped me realize that the spine is movable. I'm in my early sixties and was skeptical that my persistent back pain could be addressed. After years of sharp pain, within two months, I am amazed that I no longer have the pain. The muscles in my back and neck are no longer feeling strained. I am writing this since I was fortunate to have received this unexpected physical improvement; I am a fan of Dr. Laura Zaker."
