Relief from the pain felt between the base of the neck and the bottom of the ribcage
Upper back pain is also known as middle back pain or thoracic pain. The upper part of the spine needs to be very strong and stable because it bears the weight of the upper body, provides support for the ribcage and protects the heart and lungs. The most common cause of upper back pain is poor posture which weakens this area of the spine. Other causes include fibromyalgia, frozen shoulder, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and, for older women, osteoporosis.
Corrigo’s Libero Vertex has been designed by ergonomic and physiotherapy specialists to hold your body in the correct posture whilst you sit. The backrest provides unique support across the shoulder blades, promoting an open chest and upright posture, whilst still allowing freedom of movement. The supportive headrest takes further pressure off the spine. Being held in the right position can make a substantial difference to upper back pain sufferers, often providing partial and even total relief from symptoms.
