Hello doctor,

I have a burning like pain on the upper back of my body between the shoulder bones. It happens almost every day after sitting for long or when I lie down for quite some time. What could this be?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The burning sensation in the upper back could be due to chronic bad posture and imbalance of the chest and back musculature strength.

I recommend you to kindly check your posture and maintain it.

Do some retraction exercises to help your upper back and neck.

Sometimes this issue can accompany with neck stiffness as well.

Do a lot of icing on your upper back and take frequent breaks.

I suggest you do some stretching exercises at the workstation and drink plenty of fluids.

Regards.
