Upper Back Pain Causes

A lot of people suffer from upper back pain.

They're always hanging out for a shoulder massage and love having someone massage the spot in between their shoulder blades.

One bloke I know used to pay his children a cent a minute to dig into his upper back with their elbows just to provide him with some relief.

These days it usually goes with long periods sitting hunched over a computer.

And hunched over is the right terminology.

If you sit down with your abdomen six inches away from your desk and the back of the chair sloping backwards. Your pelvis tilts back, you lose the nice 'S' shaped curve of your spinal column - it becomes a 'C' shape.

The upper part of you back is an inch or two forward of where it ought to be. The extra weight of your shoulders, neck and head puts increased tension on ligaments, tendons and muscles in your upper back. Eventually bones get moved out of alignment and that's when it really starts to hurt.

You rush off the chiro and the physio for the crunch and the rub down. It feels all right for a while, but not for long.

You keep going back for the crunch and the rub down but the pain keeps coming back.

That's because the cause of the pain is not due to a lack of crunch or rub down.

So what can you do?

The first thing is to do the 'sit-up-straight' exercises outlined in the Fix Back pain ebook at There are three of four must-do exercises to get you sitting up straight.

You need to start doing pressups as well and ideally start a gym program that includes bench press and upright row.

Finally you need to sit up straight at your desk; - abdomen pushing into the desk and back of the chair upright pushing in up under your shoulder blades.

To make this position comfortable you will have to move your keyboard and monitor away from you about 6 inches.

In the meantime stay tuned, highly tuned and remember, it's a big ask expecting to get better by having someone do something to you; sooner of later you have to do something to yourself.

Exercise For Back Pain

Exercise for back pain is by far the most effective way of relieving back pain.

If you want to relieve back pain the first principle you need to be mindful of is;
it's muscles that take bones out of alignment.

That's the bad news. The symptom that that's happened is pain. The pain is telling you to get back into alignment.

The good news is that it's muscles, properly strengthened and loosened that will assist your bones to get back into better alignment. The pain goes away.

The second principle is that the cause of the pain is rarely at the site of the pain. This means that the crunch, rub down and 'electric shock' at the point where it hurts doesn't fix the cause of the misalignment.

For most people the cause of the misalignment is tight calf, hamstring and buttock muscles - coupled with weak muscles on the front and back of their body.

If you go to and get a copy of the 'Fix Back Pain' ebook I'll outline the exercises you need to do to square yourself up.

The third principle is that it's a big ask expecting to get better by having someone do something to you; sooner or later you have to do something to yourself.

This means that while the crunch, the rub down and the 'electric shock' may ease the pain for a while, the real fix will be the exercises you do on a regular and systematic basis.

One thing you can't do is sub-contract your exercise program!

I'll show you the four great strength exercises you can do at home and a general strength training program at the gym.

That's what happened to me. I had a crook back, it hurt to sneeze and cough. I had trouble putting on my socks and leaning over the basin to brush my teeth. When I sneezed and coughed it felt like someone was sticking a red hot poker in my back.

If you're reading this you'll know what I'm talking about. You've probably got sciatica as well.

I started doing the exercises every night. 8 weeks later, fixed. That was 9 years ago, and while I'm not 97% fat free, I'm happy to report that I'm 97% pain free.
