Upper Back Pain & Neck Pain
Upper back pain and neck pain can be related, whether it is from a misalignment in the upper thoracic spine or in the lower cervical spine, because many of the nerves are connected to the same areas of vertebrae and may affect the same areas of the body. Neck pain can be associated with injuries such as whiplash or an acute injury such as a kink in the neck, and it is often caused by a misalignment in the cervical spine. Upper back pain, on the other hand, can also be affected by nerves that extend from the cervical spine, but it is often associated with a misalignment in the thoracic spine (mid back) where the nerves can reach most areas of the upper body.
Fortunately, the specialists at The Advanced Pain Relief Institute in Lindenhurst can identify subluxations in the upper back and neck and adjust the spine so the nerves can communicate freely with the rest of the body. Back pain and neck pain are two of the most common reasons for people for visit pain relief specialists.

Because your neck is responsible for constantly supporting and moving your head (which can be about 14-16 pounds), it often can get injured. The spinal cords in the vertebrae send nerve impulses to all areas of the body. These large bundle of nerves will run down your arms and upper back. So unfortunately, if your arm is hurting, it could be directly correlated to a problem in the neck. Some common symptoms in the arms are numbness, tingling, coldness, and achiness. Most common neck and upper back pain is caused by poor posture, stress, disc problems, and chiropractic subluxations. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or pain, call us so we can help alleviate the pain.
