Upper back pain and weakness is usually a symptom of a lack of motion. This is usually associated with a general lack of exercise.No matter what the cause of your back pain, there are many different ways in which to treat it. Many of the treatment options can be done at home or at a chiropractic office, however, there are a few that can only be performed by a physician or therapist.
Home remedies are the first course of treatment in cases where the problems and associated pains are not severe in nature. If these fail to lead to a timely cure and only if they fail to relieve back pain will the patient see a doctor for exposure to some of the more popular cures. Of course if your condition worsens because of these treatments then you should immediately consult a doctor qualified in this field of practice. Some of the symptoms associated with a worsening condition would include but not limited to: numbness or a generally numb condition in the upper back, a burning sensation in the upper back and in the upper cervical disc area and for that matter any increased pain along the spine
Home remedies include the use of ice in the area of back pain. When it is applied every three or four hours, it offers effective relief from pain. This method should be used for two days and then heat should be applied to the area that is affected with pain. It is recommended that a person who suffers from back pain take a pain reliever such as Motrin or Naproxen because of the anti- inflammatory properties that they contain.
