Rib and Mid Back Pain can be one of the more scary back conditions.
This pain often refers to the sides of the body and even to the front of the chest. The can be very anxiety producing for a patient as they are not sure if it is a heart condition.
We have seen many patients referred to us by their general practitioner who after a barrage of tests still had anterior of front of the chest pain.
After a series of visits they were able to get 100% well!
Another common symptom is Extremely sharp back and rib pain.
This can be one of the most painful symptoms we see in practice. Patients often have trouble getting a deep breath without pain, and often report to the Emergency room first only to get negative scans.
Soft Tissue and Chiropractic care can allow the alignment of the rib and reduce the local spasm in the rib area.
These symptoms come on often after just a sneeze or a cough, and are very painful!
Dull Aching Shoulder Blade pain is another common symptom we see.
So many in modern society have to spend there day leaning forward with their arms in front of their body for work. This can lead to changes in the mobility of the spine and stress on certain muscles.
