Mid back pain (also known as upper back pain, middle back pain and thoracic spine pain) can cause pain anywhere from your neck to the bottom of the rib cage. While mid back pain is not as common as low back pain, it can be very painful when it does appear.

Anatomy of the Mid Back
The Thoracic Spine region, or the mid back, is comprised of 12 vertebrae, each connected to a rib on either side. The middle back serves as protection for your internal organs.
Mid back pain is less common because the bones in this area are not as involved in movement as the lower back (lumbar). It is very uncommon to develop back and spine conditions such as degenerative disc disease, herniated discs or spinal stenosis in the mid back, or thoracic spine.
