Causes of chest pain


One common cause of chest pain is costochondritis, which is inflammation of the cartilage that connects the ribs to the breastbone. This condition can be caused by injury, strain, or poor posture. It can result in sharp pain, tenderness, and discomfort in the chest area. Chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate this pain by realigning the joints and reducing inflammation.

Rib dysfunction

Another cause of chest pain is rib dysfunction. This occurs when the ribs become misaligned or restricted in movement, typically due to trauma or postural issues. Chiropractors can use various techniques to adjust the ribs and restore proper movement, which can relieve pain and discomfort.

Poor posture

Poor posture can also contribute to chest pain. Slouching or hunching forward puts pressure on the chest and can cause pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care can help improve your posture, which can alleviate chest pain and prevent it from recurring in the future.
