When it comes to Mid-Back Pain, speak to the professionals at Optimal Osteopathy.


What You Need To Know

Here at Optimal Osteopathy we deal with patients with mid-back pain on a daily basis.

There are many causes of mid-back pain. The most common are tension patterns caused by poor postural habits and small joint and muscle restrictions (tightness) that have not released naturally through exercise or rest.

Typically, these restrictions become established and often is the result of sleeping awkwardly, lifting a heavy object or repeated actions such as looking down at phone and computer screens - the straw that broke the camels back.

Here at Optimal Osteopathy, we are here to help you break the habit. 

The majority of patients experience reduced if not eliminated symptoms of mechanical mid-back pain when introduced to a cluster of Osteopathy treatment sessions.

Your Osteopath here at Optimal Osteopathy will work with you by discussing the problem with you and the root of the cause.

A range of hands-on techniques can be used to alleviate the symptoms of mid-back pain such as deep soft tissue massage (AKA Neuromuscular and Muscle Energy Techniques), joint mobilisation and manipulation where appropriate.

Your treatment is more than likely to focus on areas away from the mid-back such as the upper limb, ribs and other parts of your spine as it all connects together. Everything works together as a unit during motion!

Equally as important is identifying the underlying causes, whether that be poor work station set-up, lack of exercise or even poor technique.

Your Osteopath will help you to create a tailor made, manageable exercise regime which often includes stretching, strengthening and rebalancing muscle function.
