My work is firmly tightened to sedentary lifestyle, so it was pretty natural to once start experiencing a pain between shoulder blades and which after a while became severe. When you are young you don’t pay much attention to some accidental back pain, but as you get older (or I may better say more mature), you will notice that your body becomes more sensitive to wrong conditions, and the back often reacts pretty soon.
If you started to experience an upper back pain just recently, then act immediately to prevent it turning into a chronic pain. The simplest way is to consult with a doctor to receive instructions on what to do with the pain. You can also do some back pain treatment yourself, but only if you know the causes and your back “mechanics” – these things are important, otherwise you may even worsen the whole condition.
The Possible Causes Of Severe Upper Back Pain
- Improper posture
- Muscles spasms
- Internal organ diseases
- Strong stress
These are the main causes of the pain; many of them are related or are born from another cause. The bad posture is one of the most common causes and it can be resolved easily by you. The same goes to stress factor and muscle spasms that can also be related to posture problems. Osteochondrosis and organ diseases are the things that require professional medical attention.
Severe upper back pain between shoulder blades means the progressed condition when your upper back has been subjected to negative conditions for while already. Of course, it may be some injury, but this is another story. When you stoop a lot, expect the severe pain in between shoulder blades to come. The simplest solution is to watch your posture during the day and correct it when needed. This can also help with muscles spasms caused by improper posture.
It is vital to do a regular physical activity to bring back pain relief and maintain your back in a healthy condition. Our body is a dynamic system, and it requires movement to maintain itself in a healthy state, so exercise regularly and you ill notice that your back pain gets reduced and ultimately it will fade away for good.
My back pain problems I solved through yoga: there are good yoga asanas or yoga poses for back pain such as trikonasana, parsvottanasana, bhujangasana, ardha-matsyendrasana, etc. – they work wonders with your back and the whole body (this is how I got rid of my severe upper back pain).
Another benefit from regular exercising is the reduced stress; that’s right, there is a connection between how you feel and how (often) you move; I noticed, that after a good physical activity, my mind is more peaceful, and thus I’m less prone to stress. Keep this in mind and don’t be surprised if you will become more peaceful once you start exercising regularly (it may not happen immediately, but after few weeks you will see the difference).
Well, this is my experience and I hope it is helpful for you; my case is not severe so I was able to manage it through yoga and more movement; if your case is osteochondrosis, or say kidney disease, then you need to seek for medical help and the sooner the better. I wish you good luck in achieving a soon back pain relief.
