Upper back pain...

After having treatments so long with a chiro, I still seem to have upper back pain and it is usually in the same location. I think it's due to my mild scoliosis I had since young. Does anyone has success in relieving the pain? Are there any special exercises for back pain? The pain can be just annoying to intense pain. I also have this sharp pain at my left rib cage and this rib cage is kinda higher than the right one. I get this sharp pain very suddenly and is made worse by breathing in but it goes away quickly so I don't think it's anything to do with inflame lungs,etc. The pain in my rib cage is usually in the same location too. Does anyone has this experience? I also find it impossible to sit up or stand up straight, if I force myself to, my lungs will seem like it has been compressed and I can't breathe properly. Could it be struture problems, weak muscles or both? Any comments or suggestion would be great!

Re: Upper back pain...

I think you should see an orthopedic spine specialist to rule out any thoracic area problems; it sounds like an MRI would be a good idea.

I'd like to say welcome to the boards and hope you get some more opinions.
