Kinesiology Tape for Middle Back Pain

Learn about middle back pain. The middle back is a combination of vertebrae from the upper and middle sections of the back and muscles that run the entire length of the back. These muscles support the spine, flex and extend the torso, move the upper limbs and head, as well as function to keep your body in an upright position.

Middle back pain can be attributed to poor posture, weakness in the muscles, overuse, or overly tight/knotted muscles. These conditions can cause muscle imbalance, muscle fatigue, pain, and tears. In some cases, spasms are associated with the pain. This is primarily due to poor nutrient circulation to the nervous system and can be addressed by increasing blood flow.

Typical treatments for middle back pain include rest and ice, as well as massage, electrical stimulation (ultrasound), light and frequent stretching, alternating ice and heat, and strength training of the opposing muscle group (the abdominals) to relieve pressure from the back.

Using this KT Tape application can relieve pressure from the painful spot and send correct signaling to the muscles that allow them to relax.
