I wouldn't adjust saddle height or fore-aft to help with the back issue since that can compound issues. Saddle tilt is worth playing with.

How are your bars sized?

What wheels and tires are you running? What width and pressure?

Also what do you mean by upper back ? Your neck? Between your shoulder blades?
