Osteopathic Treatment for Chest Pain

In the acute phase chest pain can be very distressing, it can mimic heart attack, be severely painful on breathing or pass shooting pain into the ribs. When we come across chest problems we ask about the way it started and when. If you are in your fifties, never exercised before trying to run a ten mile race for the first time, it might be reasonable to suspect that your heart might be involved, if you have fallen off a roof onto the lawnmower one might suspect a fractured rib or two– we shall check. More often than not we will look at the way your spine and ribs move around the area of pain, usually the pain is muscular and we shall loosen up the offending structures, leaving you free to move pain free and breathing normally.
