Spine Originating Chest Pain

What is spine originating chest pain?

Chest pain can be caused by anything from muscle pain to a heart attack and should never be ignored.

If you are experiencing severe symptoms we recommend seeking urgent medical advice

Most chest pain is not heart-related and isn’t a sign of a life-threatening problem. If your chest is painful and tender to touch, it may be caused by a strained muscle in your chest wall. This can be surprisingly painful, but with rest the pain should ease and the muscle will heal in time. Your spine is also a very common cause of chest pain and it can be fixed by treatment of your thoracic spine and rib cage. This is called Costochondritis.

What causes spine originating chest pain?

Pain is usually caused by local structures within or around the upper back or chest. It may occasionally be referred from other sources such as the neck or upper back. Upper back and chest pain often occurs in individuals involved with heavy lifting, bending forward or twisting.
