In upper back zone, We have twelve vertebrae called Thoracic Vertebrae (T1 to T12). It is the longer part in our spine or backbone. Upper back relates lumbar vertebrae to cervical vertebrae. Thoracic vertebrae are smaller in size than lumbar bones. Actually, the more you go up through the spine, the smaller vertebrae are. Herniated disc related back pain occurs more often in this spine area. A Back pain belt or corset back brace would be the best solution to act as a back support. It would help to decrease pressure on injured discs or bones, and to alleviate upper back pain. A back support can achieve this by providing a better back posture.
However, first before buying a corset back brace you should determine the nature of the back injury you are experiencing. Is it related to a vertebra (bone fracture), disc, muscles, ligaments or nerves? And, then you should choose the back support with the right height and the most efficient support for your back pain.
