Mid-back Pain

The thoracic spine, or mid-back area, is less likely to have painful conditions than the cervical (neck) or lumbar (lower back) spine. The thoracic spine is well-supported by the rib cage and chest muscles, helping to protect it from injury. When there is mid-back pain, it is often a musculoskeletal issue that heals quickly with conservative treatments. However, there are possible conditions that affect the thoracic spine and cause mid-back pain. Our pain specialists at Medici Medical Arts will help diagnose and treat upper or mid-back conditions to give patients relief.

When mid-back pain occurs, it is usually easier to identify the source of pain than with the neck or lower back. The cervical and lumbar spine are common areas for pinched nerves that cause pain without an identifiable cause. However, pain stemming from the mid-back is usually a mechanical or spinal structure issue. Nerves can be irritated or compressed, but it is usually due to vertebrae, facet joint or disc damage or degeneration. Osteoporosis, arthritis, degenerative disc disease and vertebrae fractures are common structural issues in the thoracic spine that could be the source of mid-back pain.

Treatments for Thoracic Spine Conditions

Mid-back pain is less common than other spinal conditions and usually easier to treat. In many cases, thoracic spine conditions respond well to conservative treatments and are less likely to require surgery or more invasive treatments. Our pain physicians coordinate treatment plans for patients with mid-back pain that can include physical therapy, myofascial release, anti-inflammatory injections, PENS and other non-invasive treatments that are customized to the patient.

If you have been experiencing ongoing mid-back pain and want to explore treatment options for relief, contact Medici Medical Arts today to schedule your consultation to begin your journey to freedom from back pain. We have locations in the Atlanta area for treatment of spinal conditions, rehabilitation and pain management.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
