After working hard at my job, the next day I had pain in my upper back. Is that the symptoms of a muscle strain or scoliosis? I also have a mild case of that


  • Muscle strain or muscle pull or even a muscle tear implies damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons.Muscle strain or muscle pull or even a muscle tear implies damage to a muscle or its attaching tendons.
  • I hope you're icing your back and also made an incident report at work because you never know what it could be. Hopefully a muscle strain but make out a workman's comp report and see your Dr. just in case or if any accident ever happens again at work. Take care. Charry

    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • I made out an accident report and went to the doctor. He diagnosed it as a mid-thoracic strain. The mild scoliosis I had was 14.5 degree curve(reduced since seeing a chiropractor). I am now going to physical therapy and it is still sore but gaining more flexibility in my right arm and shoulder. Hope this problem heals!
