Warning Signs of Mid-Back Pain

DO YOU HAVE MID-BACK PAIN? 

CONCERNED IT IS CAUSED BY A SERIOUS DISEASE? 
YOU HEART? YOUR KIDNEY? GALLBLADDER?

HAVE YOU BEEN MIS-DIAGNOSED?

We will get to the root cause of your mid-back pain. If it is something we determine treatable with chiropractic, it will not only feel better but be less likely to return. Else we will refer you out to an appropriate specialist for your specific condition. If you are looking for a chiropractor in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple, and all are experts. Surely you will love one of us (if not all).

Mid-back pain: Warning signs it is coming from the heart

Heart attacks usually cause chest pain, a heaviness to the chest, pain into the left shoulder blade region, left shoulder and even down into the left arm. But heart attacks can also shoot pain into the right side down into the right arm. It can cause a heart burn sensation like you feel with GERD. Pain can shoot up into the jaw. Heart attacks can cause a shortness of breath and sense of doom.

One of the big differentiating factors of a heart attack versus a muscle-skeletal cause of pain is that during a heart attack, you can not find a comfortable position. You end up writhing in pain, looking for relief. If it was due to a rib, shoulder or mid-back joint or muscle injury, you usually can find a position that alleviates the pain. 

Another differentiating factor is if you pain worsens with cardio-vascular taxing activities (like going upstairs), SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION. Heart attacks are time sensitive. The sooner you get medical treatment the better. If your pain is due to a shoulder, rib or back injury, going up the stairs should not make it feel worse.

When it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your shoulder, back or rib, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.

That is the Drummond Difference. 

MID-BACK PAIN: WARNING SIGNS IT IS COMING FROM THE Gallbladder

If your pain worsens after eating a rich, fatty meal, chances are your mid-back pain is radiating from a spastic or diseased gall bladder. 

One of the big differentiating factors of a gallbladder issue versus a muscle-skeletal cause of pain is that if the pain is coming from your gallbladder, you can not find a comfortable position. You end up writhing in pain, looking for relief. If it was due to a rib, shoulder or mid-back joint or muscle injury, you usually can find a position that alleviates the pain. 

Again, when it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your mid-back, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.

MID-BACK PAIN: WARNING SIGNS IT IS COMING FROM THE Kidney

One of the big differentiating factors of a kidney issue versus a muscle-skeletal cause of pain is that if the pain is coming from your kidney, you can not find a comfortable position. You end up writhing in pain, looking for relief. If it was due to a rib, shoulder or mid-back joint or muscle injury, you usually can find a position that alleviates the pain. 

Again, when it doubt, see your healthcare provider. If in Bloomington, Indiana, we have multiple doctors on staff, making it likely one of us can see you on the SAME DAY, to help determine if you need medical attention. If not, and we find your pain is due to an injury to your mid-back, we can treat you so you can get the relief (both mentally and physically) that you are looking for.
