Burning Sensation in the Middle Back

A burning back sensation is the feeling of experiencing warmth or heat in the middle or even upper back, which may or may not have accompanying pain. A lot of other symptoms can occur with the burning, including tingling, numbness or itching.

Back pain is something that is experienced by almost everyone at some point in their lives. Although it does not always occur with the burning sensation, it is quite common.

What can cause a burning sensation in the back?

A variety of underlying causes can result in this sensation, including the following common causes: muscle sprains, strains, and back spasms, weak mid-back muscles, poor posture, tight neck and mid-back, spinal misalignment, GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), pinched nerves (nerve entrapment or compression leading to nerve pain), including the compression of the sciatic nerve (leading to sciatica or low back pain that can then spread from the lower back to the mid back), herniated discs, spinal stenosis, vitamin deficiencies etc.

More severe causes such as burns (including thermal, electric or chemical burns or even sunburns), degenerative disc disease, infections, back injury such as spinal cord injury, systemic diseases like multiple sclerosis, diabetic neuropathy, encephalitis, fibromyalgia, SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus), and rheumatoid arthritis.

Where exactly is the pain located?

Usually, in patients who complain of a burning back, the pain is located right in the middle back area, between the shoulder blades or slightly lower. It also tends to get worse with sitting. Sometimes upper back pain or neck pain can also radiate into the mid back area (called referred pain), or chest pain can be felt in the back instead.

What symptoms to expect

Some other symptoms may accompany the burning back sensation. These may vary according to the main underlying condition and may also be present in other parts of the body. Common symptoms include tingling, feeling pins and needles, numbness, redness, warmth, swelling, sharp pain, increased sensitivity in the affected region, muscle weakness

On the other hand, some serious symptoms that warrant urgent medical attention include burns (chemical, thermal, electrical), loss of bowel or bladder control, severe pain, paralysis, weakness and very high fever. If you experience any of these, make sure you seek immediate medical help, as time is of the essence in treating such serious issues and prevent them from worsening or damaging other parts of your body.

Diagnosis and Treatment

Pain management and treatment will depend on the underlying cause. Usually, your doctor may recommend rest and anti-inflammatory pain relievers in the beginning. Other medications like muscle relaxants, and nutritional supplements may also be advised.

Additionally, some people may benefit from physical therapy to re-mobilise their spine and relieve pressure on the back and spinal nerve roots.

Some at-home treatments, such as ice packs to reduce the burning sensation and inflammation, anti-inflammatory medication and rest may also prove beneficial in the beginning.

However, it is possible to avoid all of these approaches completely and take a shortcut to quick, effective and natural recovery by using a spinal decompression device.

In a large number of cases, back pain, including that which is located in the middle back, is caused by spinal compression, a process where the vertebrae (cylindrical-shaped bones that make up the spinal column) become compressed and can impinge on other spinal structures such as nerve roots and spinal discs. This process can then lead to pain in the middle back, which can oftentimes be a burning type.

Because spinal compression is to blame for the majority of back pain cases, it is safe to say that by reversing this process and decompressing your middle spine, the burning sensation, pain, and any other symptoms you experience shall disappear.

But how do you decompress the spine, more exactly?

The best way to decompress your spine is to use a spinal decompression device, such as the Spinal Backrack.
