Chest pain related to a musculoskeletal problem

The BROSSARD CHIROPRACTOR CLINIC offers treatments for chest pain that are related to a musculoskeletal injury. We cater to greater Longueuil, including Candiac, La Prairie, Saint-Hubert, as well as the other cities in the South Shore. A complete examination will be performed to determine if your chest pain is linked to a musculoskeletal problem.
It is often thought that chest pain is due to problems related to organs (heart, lungs, oesophagus, aorta, etc.). But chest pain can also be caused by problems related to bones, cartilages or muscles.
Musculoskeletal chest pain is generally located in the junction between the vertebrae and the ribs, in a specific spot. However, this pain can also be anywhere along the chest, all the way to the shoulders. The chest pain can feel amplified when touching it, or while changing positions.

Chest pain and scoliosis

Scoliosis (twisting of the spine) can cause chest pain, and even affect one’s respiration, due to the strain (pressure) that it exerts on the rib cage. Scoliosis affects over 30% of the population, even children under 5 years old.
Dorsolumbar (or thoracolumbar) scoliosis is a lateral curvature of the spine that extends from the thoracic region to the lumbar region (lower back). The ribs are rotated and the shoulder blades can therefore be lifted, which can cause chest pain. A hunch can form in the upper back.
During your clinical examination, the chiropractor can determine if your chest pain has a musculoskeletal origin. A treatment adapted to your precise condition can be implemented to lessen the chest pain and improve your condition. Postural exercises will also be proposed.

Chest pain and costovertebral syndrome

The costovertebral syndrome is characterized by a pain / pinching at the junction of the rib and the vertebra, a few centimeters from the center of the spine. It consists of a misalignment of the costovertebral joint between the rib and the vertebra. The pain is usually amplified by taking a deep breath, by rotating the head or even by moving the arm from the same side. Sometimes the muscles contract violently and the pain can travel to the neck, the shoulder or even follow the rib along the front of the rib cage.
