Anatomy of Mid Back Pain

Your spine is formed by a set of 24 bones that are stacked on top of each other with a soft "disc" between each segment for flexibility.

A healthy back should be able to flex and move in different directions like a giant spring. If your spine has joint restrictions, it could look more similar to having part of the spring welded together - still functioning as one unit but not fully functional.

Causes of Mid Back Pain

Mental and physical health issues can develop into chronic pain. This may be due to an accident, injury or illness related such as being overweight or poor posture. Chronic pains can also result from repetitive strain during work or unsafe conditions that cause stress for the individual in their environment (i.e. emotional).

If one rower in a boat stops rowing, the others are forced to pick up extra slack and this can be harmful. In a similar way, when there is an issue with one part of your spine it affects other areas as well due to how connected they all are.

When Mid Back Pain Is a Problem

A restricted joint can cause pain that begins around your rib cage and moves up & down your spine. This should be reported to us immediately if you experience any of these symptoms: chest pain, shortness of breath, unusual cough or indigestion or flu-like complaints.

If there has been a long term restriction it could lead to arthritis in the same way as when small misalignments occur on car wheels causing premature wearing out - similar wear and tear will happen with joints too!

What We Do

We offer a variety of options to ease your pain.

The safest and most effective treatment for joint restrictions is chiropractic care, so make sure you're visiting us regularly! You should avoid activities that make your back feel worse while also taking frequent breaks if you have lots of sedentary activity like sitting at a computer all day.

Yoga has been shown to help with back problems too, so consider joining in or searching online for some video tutorials. We would love the opportunity to get out there and fix those joints - come visit us today!

I don’t know what I’d do without my monthly appointment. My movement vastly improved and there has been a reduction in persistent when I discovered this clinic.

After being diagnosed with BPPV Vertigo I was really suffering and after not really making any progress with the Betahistine prescribed by the Doctor at the Royal Stoke I decided to see Dr Finn, who has previously resolved other muscular and skeletal injuries for myself and my family. With BPPV Vertigo being an issue with the inner ear I wasn’t sure if this was something he could resolve promptly ? The clinic fitted me in really quickly and after just two short visits my BPPV was fully resolved. After spending so much time on 111 and at the hospital I was relieved at how swiftly and efficiently Dr Finn resolved my BPPV, which was really bad. I can fully recommend this clinic for this and other treatments in a professional and effective manner. 10/10

My wife was suddenly in real pain around her hip area and upon making a phone call to Newcastle Chiropractic was given an immediate appointment. With a total of no more than 20 minutes she was feeling a lot less pain and doing gentle walking as recommended by Rob. She’s very grateful with a lot less pain and feeling mobile again.

I first started seeing Rob in 1998 when he took over from Jane Hvas at the Brampton Clinic. I have now been a patient of Robs for 25 years. I don't know what I would have done without the treatment and support I have re eived from him. He's simply the best.

Dott. Burcu Cetinkaya is the best chiropractor I've ever been treated by, and I've had many. Since the first visit at the clinic I've been examinated and listened very carefully about my problems and I've been given a personalised plan of treatment and exercises straight away. I've been checked vertebra by vertebra and rettified my posture, basically if there is a problem she will find out and I've never been so happy with my back, my problems they're gone and my posture is the best ever. I can't thank dott. Burcu enough even if an emergency occurred she has been always available and makes me feel safe.
Not the last the ladies on reception are the kindest ever. The clinic service is a 5 star ???? all round. Thank you ???? ???? ????????
