Upper to mid back pain affects the region from the base of your neck to the bottom of your rib cage. This type of back pain is normally caused by a nerve and hence you might also experience pain in places where the nerve travels, including your arms, legs, chest, and stomach.
- Constant stiffness from the base of your neck to the bottom of your ribs
- A sharp or stabbing pain in the neck, upper back, or middle back, particularly after lifting a heavy object
- Chronic ache in the middle back after long periods of standing or sitting
Mid back pain may be caused by a nerve in the sternum (the long bone in the center of your chest that your ribs are joined to) becoming pinched, irritated, or injured in any way. This can be from overuse, a strained muscle, or damage to the muscles, ligaments, and discs that support your spine. Poor posture is also a contributing factor as are medical issues such as a herniated disc, vertebrae fracture or organ disease or dysfunction.
