Kiss Your Midback Pain Goodbye

Do you ever find yourself grappling with persistent midback pain, wondering if there's more to it than just aches and discomfort? The truth is, your midback pain can have far-reaching effects beyond just that physical discomfort – it can also impact the function of vital organs like your heart, liver, stomach, intestines, gall bladder, and even your ability to breathe deeply. But there's hope. Chiropractic care at Advocate Wellness offers a holistic approach to addressing your midback pain and promoting overall wellness, with therapies like myofascial therapy and red light therapy (low-level laser therapy) playing a crucial supporting role in restoring balance and function to both your spine and your organs.

Midback Pain Affects More Than the Back

The midback, or thoracic spine, is a complex region of the spine that plays a crucial role in supporting the body and facilitating movement. When this area becomes misaligned or inflamed, it can lead to a cascade of issues that extend far beyond just back pain. The nerves that branch out from the thoracic spine not only innervate the muscles and tissues of your back but also connect to your organs in the chest and abdomen, and pelvis, influencing their function and health or lack thereof.

Midback Pain Can Affect Organ Function

One of the most significant consequences of midback pain we regularly see is its impact on organ function. When the thoracic spine is out of alignment or under stress, it can impede nerve flow to your organs, disrupting their normal function and potentially leading to issues such as decreased heart regulation that shows up as increased blood pressure or heart rate that is otherwise unexplainable (we co-manage lots of cases with cardiology), impaired liver detoxification, digestive disturbances like inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS), gallbladder dysfunction, and compromised respiratory function that leads to asthma-like symptoms. 

Additionally, inflammation in the midback region can really make these issues worse, further compromising organ health and exacerbating symptoms. Conditions like poor posture, spinal misalignments, muscle imbalances, and chronic distress can all contribute to inflammation in the thoracic spine, creating a vicious cycle of pain and dysfunction.

Chiropractic Care Relieves Midback Pain

Fortunately, our chiropractic comprehensive solutions address midback pain and its associated consequences. Through gentle spinal adjustments, we realign the thoracic spine and stimulate areas of the brain that regulate normal healing and function, relieving pressure on the nerves and restoring proper nerve flow to the organs. This not only helps alleviate midback pain but also supports optimal organ function and overall health.

In addition to spinal adjustments, we also provide therapies like myofascial therapy and red light therapy to further support the healing process. Myofascial therapy focuses on releasing tension and adhesions within the fascia, the connective tissue that surrounds and supports the muscles. By addressing those points in the fasci where it has gotten stuck with scar tissue or otherwise gotten stuck, myofascial therapy can help improve your mobility, alleviate your pain, and reduce inflammation in your midback.

Red light therapy, also known as low-level laser therapy, utilizes specific wavelengths of red and infrared light to penetrate deep into your body’s injured tissues, stimulating those cells to repair and reduce inflammation. This non-invasive treatment can help accelerate the healing process by as much as two times, relieve pain, and improve overall function in the thoracic spine and your organs.
