In this day and age, bad posture is everywhere. Many of us spend our days hunched over, looking at our computer screens. As the years go on, however, this could have serious consequences for your health.
Bad posture, muscle strains and muscle spasms can lead to muscle irritation, the leading cause of thoracic spine and chronic back pain. The risk of experiencing thoracic spine pain, frequently called upper back pain, increases as we age.
Thoracic spine pain symptoms often present as discomfort in the area below your neck and above your waist. This kind of pain is less common than pain in the neck or low back. However, upper back pain has a greater chance of being caused by an underlying condition such as osteoporosis or arthritis.
