Upper Back & Neck Pain
If you currently have pain in the upper part of your back, shoulder blades or neck, you’ll know how debilitating it can be.
Upper back and neck pain can come on in many different ways. Perhaps you made a sudden movement that caused the area to feel jarred or twinge with pain. Or maybe you’ve felt discomfort for some time. It may be that you simply woke up with back, neck and shoulder pain. It’s an increasingly common problem today, particularly since we have become more sedentary and desk-bound
Upper back and neck pain can have a number of causes.
Some of the more common factors behind upper back and neck pain are:
- Nervous System Stress
- Poor posture
- A trapped nerve
- Damage to the ligaments or tendons or accident
- Daily wear and tear
- Emotional tension causing the muscles to tighten
