Back, Chest and Ribs


Pain between the shoulder blades and in the middle of the back is very common, but it can be difficult to resolve. It can be caused by work activity and postural problems. Women with large breasts often have this problem and may even resort to breast reduction surgery to resolve this problem. It may be associated with pain in the chest where the ribs join the sternum. Interestingly, many of our patients have had full cardiac workups for chest pain prior to coming for physical therapy for treatment of back pain. Usually the chest pain is relieved at the same time as the back pain. Effective treatment for this condition requires treating the back and the rib cage. Physical therapy treatment may include ultrasound, therapeutic exercise, massage, myofascial mobilization, joint mobilization, strain-counterstrain and postural correction.
