Pain Management Specialist, Delhi
Middle Back Pain - Common Causes Of It!

Back pain is something that affects many people all over the world. Persistent and chronic pain seems to be one of the most common complaints. Middle back pain is back pain that is felt in the thoracic vertebrae region, which is located between the base of the neck and top of the lumbar spine. The ribs attach to a long, flat bone in the middle of the chest called the sternum and wrap around the back. In case, there is a nerve around there is squeezed, disturbed, or injured, you are likely to feel pain in different spots where the nerve goes through, for example, your arms, legs, chest and the stomach.

Some of the most common causes of middle back pain are as follows:

  1. Middle back pain can happen as a consequence of injury or sudden damage or it can happen through strain or poor stance after some time.
  2. The most widely recognized reason for middle back pain seems to begin from soft tissue problems or muscular irritation. These can emerge from poor stance, lack of strength, prolonged sitting in front of a computer, utilizing a heavy backpack, overuse injuries, (for example, repetitive movement), or injury, (like a whiplash damage brought about by an auto crash or as a consequence of a sports injuries).
  3. The middle back is a moderately normal site for inflammatory, degenerative, metabolic, infective and neoplastic conditions.
  4. Middle back pain and its dysfunctions are connected with various conditions, for example, essential and optional osteoporosis (particularly vertebral cracks and hyperkyphosis emerging from vertebral bone loss), ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis and Scheuermann's infection.
  5. Muscle strain, overuse or damage to the muscles, tendons, and discs that are backing your spine can also cause middle back pain.
  6. Weight on the spinal nerves from specific issues, for example, a herniated disc.
  7. A fracture in one of the vertebrae can also cause pain in this region.
  8. Osteoarthritis created by the breakdown of ligament or cartilage that cushions the little joints in the spine.
  9. Myofascial pain that influences the connective tissue of a muscle or gathering of muscles.
  10. In uncommon cases, pain might be brought about by different issues, for example, gall bladder disease, cancer or an infection.
  11. Getting hit hard in the back can also cause chronic pain.
  12. Lift something too heavy may cause pain and a sudden pressure in this area.
  13. A compression fracture of the vertebra can also bring about intense or chronic pain in the middle back. The injury may bring about a fracture, however in ladies over age 50 without critical injury or somebody known to have osteoporosis, an unconstrained vertebral fracture is possible.

Hello Doctor, I am a professional working in customer service industry. So working in a little bit pressure environment and working with laptop till 2-4 hours a day. 6 months back, I felt a pain in my head which starts from the back of my neck and spread in the head. It was happening 1-2 times a week so every-time I took saridon tablet and got relief in 2-3 hours. Nearby Diwali around 3 months back, I feel that this problem has become almost daily and I was not getting relief even after taking saridon tablet so I visited a hospital and the psychologist suggested me medicine of migraine. Within 3 days, I felt my memory loss and I was unable to work so leave the medicine within 3 days considering it a very deep side effect. Then I had visited Lady Harding Medical Hospital-Connaught Place Delhi, and psychologist gave me medicine for 15 days. I felt very much relief with that medicine but unfortunately I couldn't visited there again. Also, their medicine was giving me relief but still I had felt some issues like I forgot lots of things happened in my life few days/weeks/month ago like my travel/plans/movement, any particular scenario etc. Till now, I was feeling ok but again facing the similar issue. I have tested my eyes and it is ok. Fearing about the side effects, I don't want to visit that hospital again so you are requested to kindly suggest me for the same.

Dear Lybrate user. Your symptoms point towards the diagnosis of text neck. Text Neck is an overuse syndrome or a repetitive stress injury to the neck caused by holding your head in a forward and downward position for extended periods of time. When holding your head in this position, excessive amounts of tension are created in the deep muscles of your neck and across the shoulders causing both acute and chronic neck pain. Chronic headaches have also been linked to this condition. - you should start range of motion and stretching exercises. - avoid keeping your neck in same position for long. - every half an hour move your neck, stretching is esp useful. - 3rd OCCIPITAL NERVE RADIO-FREQUENCY ABLATION or facet median branch RFA is a very good procedure to get long lasting relief. - Visit a PAIN SPECIALIST to know more about this procedure.
