Re: upper back and neck pain with pressure headaches
I get mixed messages from docs too. One says my upper back pain is from my neck, the other says NO it's from vertabrae out in my upper back. I've been going to pysical therapy & they work with a chiro who puts my vertabrae back in place & it comes right back out again.
I dont' get the headaches from this, but my neck is definitely sore, so I don't know where the problems originates, I just want someone to fix it!!!
Also, I have heard that the thoracic part of the back is the hardest to treat and most docs won't do surgery on it cause it's so close to the heart!! What I've read about it says it's a long drawn out process of pt & chiro & other treatments!
