Deep upper back pain

What do I do about a possible C5 root lesion or T1 root lesion?

Hello Kira,
You need to give me a lot more information if you want a sensible answer. Like what increases the pain, when did it begin, what treatment you've had and what do the x-rays show?

Whilst it's true that deep upper back pain can emanate from the lower cervical spine, it can also be local.

Start by doing the upper limb tension test, and Spurling's test, and giving me the result; find them using the Site Search function in the navigation bar at Chiropractic Help.
