Upper back pain is an increasingly prevalent issue that often stems from muscular tension due to improper posture, lifting heavy objects incorrectly, or prolonged muscular stress if this type of tension results in upper back discomfort, rapid and safe pain management strategies must be implemented as quickly and safely as possible to minimize it.

Practical Pain Management Treatments for Muscle-Related Upper Back Pain
Our approach to physical therapy includes a range of acute and chronic pain management treatments specifically tailored to address upper back pain caused by muscle strain or tension:
Spinal Decompression uses a traction device with controlled resistance, we gently separate the bones, joints, and discs in your upper back. This technique offers temporary relief from discomfort and tension.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) and Cell Therapy
PRP therapy utilizes your platelets to activate cells, reducing inflammation and promoting healing in nearby tissues.
Intra-Articular Laser Therapy
This laser therapy penetrates deeply into the skin to reach joints or spinal discs, providing relief often combined with PRP therapy as part of your treatment plan.
Spinal and Joint Manipulation
Your physical therapist may use orthopedic manipulation techniques that involve mobilizing joints at different degrees to bring relief, including bone mobilization. As this occurs, a click might sound from moving bones – an audible signal of decreased pain levels.
Innovative prolotherapy involves injecting a dextrose solution into muscles or joints, inducing controlled inflammation to increase blood flow, clear damaged cells, and stimulate rapid tissue regeneration.
Laser therapy treatments administered by your physical therapist use handheld laser devices to effectively address back discomfort caused by injured muscles or bones. It has proven highly beneficial.
Spinal Cord Stimulator
A spinal cord stimulator device surgically implants mild electric currents under the skin, sending impulses that compete with pain signals in the spinal cord. The goal is to achieve a 50% or more reduction in pain. This improves daily functioning and reduces reliance on pain medication.
As a component of traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is a highly effective method for pain relief. Thin needles are strategically inserted through the skin to stimulate muscles and tissues, promoting the release of natural painkillers within your body.
Homeopathic Trigger Point Injections
This alternative to opioid medication involves injecting natural solutions directly into trigger points or acupuncture points, stimulating your body’s healing mechanisms and promoting tissue regeneration.
Ozone therapy activates cell division in weakened or damaged areas, alleviating pain while strengthening and rejuvenating muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and cartilage.
Designed to correct disturbances in the autonomic nervous system, neural therapy restores balance to your body’s electrical system.
TECAR Therapy non-invasive radio-frequency treatment generates heat within your body, stimulating its natural ability to repair itself.
