Anatomy of the Mid Back

The Thoracic Spine region, or the mid back, is comprised of 12 vertebrae, each connected to a rib on either side. The middle back serves as protection for your internal organs.

Mid back pain is less common because the bones in this area are not as involved in movement as the lower back (lumbar). It is very uncommon to develop back and spine conditions such as degenerative disc disease, herniated discs or spinal stenosis in the mid back, or thoracic spine.

What are the causes of Mid Back Pain?

Mid back pain, or upper back pain, can be experienced in conjunction with neck pain or shoulder pain. The most common causes of mid back pain include:

  • An injury or trauma to the area
  • Myofascial Pain
  • Muscle strains / Muscle tears
  • Joint Pain
  • Sports injuries

Myofascial Pain, one of the most common causes of Mid back pain seen at New York Pain Care, refers to the muscles of the back and is experienced with either overuse of the muscles or underuse of the muscles. This type of pain is commonly seen with athletes or those who are involved in sports and more prone to sports injuries.
