Upper Back Pain Treatment

If you have upper back pain, the discomfort can limit your mobility and lower your quality of life. At Dunwoody Chiropractic Center, which serves Dunwoody, Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, Roswell, Norcross, Duluth, Doraville, and Chamblee, GA, we provide various treatments to ease your symptoms and help you feel your best. Before visiting us, take a look at some at-home remedies that can alleviate your aches below:

.

Get Regular Exercise

Regular exercise can help prevent and reduce back pain. If you're dealing with pain right now, you should perform gentler, slower movements to avoid further injury. Some exercises you can try when you experience upper back pain are walking, yoga, swimming, and tai chi. Specific movements to do include thoracic extension, arm and leg raise, thoracic stretch, and scapular squeeze. In addition, it’s important to perform the exercises with proper form and stay consistent in order to heal quickly.

Perform Therapeutic Stretches

Stretching regularly is also important in alleviating upper back pain. This increases oxygen, blood flow, and helps your body receive the necessary nutrients. Some stretches that can be beneficial for pain relief include neck flexion, child's pose, overarm stretch, and shoulder roll. Our chiropractor can also teach you therapeutic stretches that can strengthen your back and help you feel better.

Avoid Excessive Rest

If the daily activities you engage in are causing upper back pain, then it’s important to rest. While resting a few hours can be effective in helping your body healing, resting too much can result in more discomfort. Be sure to find a balance by resting when you need to, but you should also have the goal of becoming more active soon. For professional treatment, try searching for a chiropractor near you. 

Manage Stress

Reducing stress can ease upper back pain. You can lower stress by meditating, doing deep breathing, or trying relaxation exercises. Not only that, but it’s also important to get enough sleep and spend time in nature, which can improve your mood. Taking care of your mental, physical, and spiritual health is highly important when it comes to managing stress and alleviating upper back pain. We also offer chiropractic adjustments and massage therapy, which are designed improve your overall health and well-being.
