What is Mid-back pain?

Mid back pain refers to discomfort or pain in the region of the thoracic spine, which is the middle section of the spine between your neck and lower back.

Similar to lower back pain, mid-back pain can be caused by various factors, including age, injuries, and spine conditions such as herniated disks, thoracic radiculopathy, fractured vertebrae, or osteoarthritis.

If you are experiencing mid-back pain, it’s important to speak to a specialist who can diagnose the underlying cause  and recommend a treatment plan to alleviate your pain.
