Lower and Upper Back Pain

What is Lower and Upper Back Pain?

A person’s lower back offers support, flexibility, and strength to the upper body, which makes it no surprise that an individual’s lower back can be easily susceptible to injury and pain from everyday activities. Meanwhile, the upper back, also referred to as the thoracic spine, provides much-needed support to the vertebrae, ribs, sternum, as well as vital organs. While upper back pain isn’t as common as lower back pain, people can experience significant pain when poor posture, as well as joint or muscular irritation, is at play.
