Mid Back and Rib Pain

Mid back and rib pain is the least common spinal region for people to experience pain. The reason for this is because both the low back and upper back/neck pain are much more mobile than the mid back, which is more fixed and sturdy. People do still experience pain throughout this region, commonly relating to poor posture as people are often sitting down at a desk for most of the day.

Causes of mid back and rib pain

Injury or trauma
Heavy lifting

We understand that this issue may be preventing you from doing the things you love, or simply making it harder to do regular daily activities, so we hope to relieve the issue and prevent it from reoccurring in the future. For a more in-depth look at the issue, we can refer out to receive X-Rays, which are bulk billed, to help further identify the specific cause and region.
