Upper Back & Chest Pain
Chest pain can be pretty scary, especially if it’s going down the left arm, so it’s important that we assess it properly and make sure that we rule out heart conditions quickly. Ribs or the pec muscles could be the culprit, but often the mid-back and the neck can refer through to the chest so we will look at that too. Once we have worked out the source of the pain then we can start working on the back or the muscles, tendons, ribs and costal cartilages that are causing your chest pain. We see lots of people with upper back pain; it’s an area that gets seriously tight especially if you spend long periods sitting. We love nothing more than giving it a really good loosen up and seeing the relief on patients’ faces and, if we get some clicks out of it, even better!
