MID BACK PAIN

Your Mid Back (or thoracic spine) allows for rotation and sideward bending movements of your thorax. It also allows for attachment of your ribs and influences your breathing.

Pain in this region can be caused by trauma such as falls, sporting injuries or motor vehicle accidents. Due to this region often being involved with poor posture, thorough examination of your posture will be completed as well as the neck and shoulder.
