Im a student and have middle back pain (sometimes slighty higher but never lower back) for many years now and still have not found a solution. I have been chiropractor many times but only provides temporary relief.
I am a student so I spend alot of time sitting althrough I take regular breaks every 40 minutes to stretch out the back a little. Im not sure wherether the years of sitting and slouching are catching up to me even though i have a better sitting position at the desk now.
I also do weight lifting for many years so im not sure if I have muscle imbalances in the back/body, I think I may have a strong lower back but no so much traps. Also have fairly severe anterior pelvic tilt but it should cause lower back pain in which I have none.
I've started to foam roll, use tennis balls to hit tender spots, stretch hipflexors/thighs to help anterior pelvic tilt but still no improvement in thoracic back pain.
Any help will be much appriciated!
