Upper Back Pain Treatments

upper back painUpper back pain is pain that occurs in the upper part of the spine and continues up the neck or down the shoulder. Upper back pain is not as common as lower back pain since the bones in this area do not flex or move as much as those in the lower back. Still, upper back pain can cause limited movements and significant discomfort when it occurs.
