When concering the upper back it is important to note that there is much stability and very little motion in this region of the spine so disorders are not common like in the lower back. Disorders such as spinal stenosis, disc herniations and degenerative disc disease are simply not common. Because disorders are uncommon in the upper back when they do happen, they often cause great discomfort. The most common causes of upper back pain are often related to accident injuries or muscle irritations.

The thoracic spine differs in form and function from the cervical spine or the lumbar spine. While the neck and lower back are designed to provide us with mobility, the thoracic spine is designed to be very strong and stable to allow us to stand upright and to protect the vital internal organs in the chest. Because this section of the spinal column has a great deal of stability and only limited movement, there is generally little risk of injury or degeneration over time in the upper back.

When pain or disorders occur in the upper back it is often due to muscular irritation from de-conditioning or injury. Muscle strains, sports injuries, auto accidents, or other injuries can all result in pain from muscular irritation. This type of pain or irritation is generally very responsive to chiropractic care treatment. A chiropractor would be appropriate to see for treatment of upper back pain when the specific area may be an active trigger point and located in a skeletal muscle. This type of pain in this specific location is generally very receptive to manual massage and chiropractic adjustment.

In addition to the manual treatment performed by your local chiropractor, over the counter medication can be used to reduce the inflammation caused by joint dysfuntion.

Global Warming: Agree or Disagree
Global warming is the rise in the average temperature of Earth's atmosphere and oceans since the late 19th century and its projected continuation. Since the early 20th century, Earth's mean surface temperature has increased by about 0.8 °C (1.4 °F), with about two-thirds of the increase occurring since 1980.[2] Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and scientists are more than 90% certain that it is primarily caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases produced by human activities such as the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.
