That's pretty vague.... Can you give more of a description of the pain, when it occurs, when/how it started, etc?

Likely you have a pretty bound up thoracic spine, so if that's the case, spend a good amount of time before and after training foam rolling the upper back, trying to mobilize the spine around the roll. You can also get a half roller or roll up a towel and lie on it with the roll perpendicular to the spine and just relax over it, moving it along the T-spine every 30-60 sec or so to a new spot.
