Thoracic Pain Treatment

Treatment for Chest & Back Pain in Texas

Thoracic pain a spinal disorder which causes shooting pain in the spine and back. It is an extremely common spinal disorder which can make it difficult to breathe without feeling pain. The thoracic portion of the spine, also called the middle back, helps you maintain an upright posture and protects vital organs in the chest. Unlike many other areas of the spine, the thoracic area is not designed for flexibility. Its primary function is to provide stability.

This area of the spine can experience a lot of stress, leaving it susceptible to fractures and other types of damages.

Thoracic pain can manifest in the following symptoms:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Pain when breathing
  • Stiffness in the lower back
  • Difficulty maintaining good posture
  • Pain in the front or back of the chest
