Spine Conditions Causing Pain Between Shoulder Blades

You pain between the shoulder blade is most likely a muscular irritation that can be alleviated through proper chiropractic care. However, depending on your symptoms of pain, a more serious condition could be present.

For instance, pain between the shoulder blades may be caused by an upper back spinal condition . A common upper back and neck area spinal condition is a cervical herniated disc that can be effectively treated by the chiropractic experts at Spine and Sports Medicine.

When one of your spinal discs slips out of place – bursts – this disrupts the alignment of the vertebrae and can press against the spinal nerves. Usually, this happens after a sudden trauma – car accident and whiplash effect – or, it can gradually occur over time due to spinal degeneration.

Nerve impingement causes great pain and stress along the spine and throughout the arms. A herniated disc in the cervical spine – first 7 vertebrae located in the neck area – causes pain radiating between the shoulders.
