Using the power of innovative science and modern technology, Dr SW Clinics can help you live your best pain-free life without the need for invasive surgery.
Thoracic spinal pain, often referred to as middle back pain, is discomfort or pain that originates in the thoracic spine.
The thoracic spine is the middle portion of the vertebral column, situated between the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions. It consists of 12 vertebrae (T1 to T12) and is responsible for supporting the ribcage and protecting vital organs within the chest.
Thoracic spinal pain can result from various causes and conditions, and its symptoms may range from mild to severe.
At Dr SW Clinics, we can treat a range of pain conditions using Regenerative Medicine and pain-relieving injections. If you are tired of living with pain and looking for a non-surgical intervention, then Dr SW Clinics could help you get back to your optimal quality of life.

- Muscle Strain: Muscle strain or tension in the thoracic region can occur due to poor posture, overuse, or sudden movements. Activities that involve repetitive motions or heavy lifting may contribute to muscle strain.
- Thoracic Disc Disorders: While less common than disc issues in the cervical and lumbar spine, problems with the thoracic discs can cause pain. These issues may include degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, or disc bulges.
- Spinal Arthritis: Conditions like thoracic osteoarthritis or ankylosing spondylitis can lead to inflammation and pain in the thoracic spine.
- Compression Fractures: Fractures of the vertebrae in the thoracic spine can result from traumatic injuries or conditions like osteoporosis. These fractures can cause significant pain.
- Thoracic Outlet Syndrome: This condition involves the compression of nerves or blood vessels in the area where the thoracic outlet (a passageway for nerves and blood vessels) passes through the neck and chest. It can result in pain, numbness, or tingling in the thoracic region or upper limbs.
- Musculoskeletal Issues: Conditions like scoliosis (abnormal curvature of the spine) or kyphosis (excessive forward curvature of the thoracic spine) can lead to pain and discomfort in the thoracic area.
- Thoracic spinal pain is typically localized to the middle and upper back region.
- Pain may be described as aching, burning, or sharp, depending on the underlying cause.
- It can be aggravated by movements, such as twisting or bending, or by prolonged sitting or standing.
- In some cases, pain may radiate to the chest or abdomen, mimicking other medical conditions.
Depending on the joint issue you present with, there may be a couple of ways to diagnose your pain and thereby find you a lasting solution.
Firstly, you will have a telephone consultation with one of our highly trained patient advisors. This patient advisor will ask you a series of pre-assessment questions to better understand your personal needs.
You will then be invited for a consultation with one of our leading experts. To better gain an understanding of the problem, the Consultant may suggest you receive an x-ray or an MRI.
What is an x-ray?
A diagnostic test that can help identify what issues are causing the pain.
What is an MRI?
A diagnostic test using a magnetic field and radio waves for a detailed image of both joint and soft tissue.
What is an ultrasound?
Typically a handheld device that provides an on the spot image of the soft tissue.
Once we’ve received the results of your diagnostic tests, our team will be able to advise you on next best steps to get you pain free.
