Hello, my name is dustin and i am 16 years of age. I currently lift and am pretty athletic. Recently i have felt pain in the upper back. When i bend forward and try and arc/hunch my back a semi-sharp pain radiates. I went to chiropractor and he said it may have just been me being too tight from not stretching enough. The pain is also limiting in a sense. It runs down my spine in the upper region. I really want to feel a crack that makes me feel better although it may not be that kind of injury. There was no all-of-a-suddent click or lock into that place i simply woke up with this kind of pain. On a scale from 1-10 when bending forward and arching it is about a 6. If anyone knows what this could possibly be please respond back. Thanks.View Thread
