Thoracic Spine Pain Definition and Symptoms
Thoracic spine pain refers to any pain located in the middle back. Because this part of the back allows for little motion, thoracic injuries are very rare. Some of the most common causes of thoracic spine pain are car accidents, lifting something that is too heavy, and slumping when you sit or stand. In rare cases middle back pain may signify gallbladder disease, cancer, or an infection in the back.
