Middle Back & Shoulder Pain
Common causes of head and neck pain:
Poor Posture and Muscle Deconditioning
A herniated disc in the thoracic spine is uncommon but when happened, it can cause pain in the mid-back and shoulders. When a disc is herniated, the jelly-like substance inside the disc pushes out and can irritate the nerves. In addition to pain, you may also experience extremity weakness, numbness and difficulty to breath.
A nerve may become pinched through a variety of mechanisms. Depending on the nerve that is compressed, you might experience the following:
- Extremity burning pain, weakness, and numbness can affect your daily activities and quality of your sleep
- Leg weakness or loss of control (this is a sign of lumbar spine)
Pain in this area may result from a traumatic injury. Examples include:
- Slipping and falling
- Incorrectly lifting objects
- Car accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Excessive or rigorous exercise
In some cases, you may not be aware you sustained an injury. For example, you may slip and fall and not experience pain. However, when you wake up the next morning, the pain may be present due to (a muscle strain or other injury) sprain, strain or muscle spasm.
