One of the main causes of intercostal neuralgia is restricted motion at the axis where the ribs contact the vertebrae. This restriction can lead to inflammation ultimately irritating the intercostal nerve.
Intercostal neuralgia is usually easily fixed with a chiropractic adjustment to the ribs to free up the motion. When the pain is on the left side of the chest, it is common to mistake the symptoms for a heart condition.
The Chiropractors at Frisco Spinal Rehab know just what to do for intercostal neuralgia. It is important to see a doctor that is familiar with the different causes of pain in this area including fractured ribs, torn cartilage, tumors and organic causes such as stomach or heart conditions. If you are experiencing this painful condition, call our Frisco, TX clinic today for an examination.
