Middle & Upper Back Pain

Middle & upper back pain is not as common as low back pain or neck pain, because the bones in this area of the back don’t flex or move as much as the bones in your lower back or neck.

Middle & upper back pain occurs below the neck and above the bottom of the rib cage, in the thoracic spine. The upper and middle back (called the thoracic spine) has 12 back bones — the T1 to T12 vertebrae. Disks reside between them.

Upper and middle back pain can occur anywhere from the base of your neck to the bottom of your rib cage. There are a number of ways the bones, muscles, ligaments, and disks in the spine can irritate or injure the nerves, causing middle & back pain.


  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Overuse, muscle strain, or injury to the muscle
  • Pinched nerve
  • Poor posture.
  • Fractured vertebra
  • Osteoarthritis 
  • Herniated disc
  • Myofascial pain 
  • Gallbladder issues


Common symptoms of upper and middle back pain are:

  • Tingling or numbness in your arms, legs, chest, or belly
  • Dull, burning, or sharp pain
  • Weakness in your arms or legs
  • Muscle tightness or stiffness.
  • Losing control of your bladder or bowels
