Posture Correction is the Key to Eliminating Mid/Upper Back Pain

posture

When your head is forward of your spine, the weight of it strains the posterior neck and upper back muscles.  The effect is worsened if you sit frequently for extended periods, in front of a computer screen.

So, the main strategy for eradicating upper to mid back pain is to improve your posture.  Do exercises that reduce forward head posture, strengthen the upper back muscles and reduce rounding of the upper back (hyperkyphosis).   As your posture improves, your pain will dissipate.
