Finding Relief: How Davis Chiropractic Can Help Alleviate Rib and Sternum Pain

chest painDealing with rib or sternum pain can be a discomforting experience, affecting your daily life and activities. One effective and natural way to find relief from such pain is through chiropractic care.

We’ll explore how Davis Chiropractic Health & Wellness, P.A. can help address rib and sternum pain caused by rib and thoracic spine misalignments.

Understanding Anterior Rib/Sternum Pain

Anterior rib or sternum pain often arises when the ribs or sternum (breastbone) become misaligned. This misalignment can be caused by various factors, including poor posture, repetitive motion, trauma, or stress. When the ribs or sternum are not in their proper position, it can lead to pain, discomfort, and even difficulty breathing. This can affect many things in your everyday life including sleeping, laying on your side, coughing, sneezing, taking a deep breath, using your arms, and having your body in certain positions.

Davis Chiropractic Approach

Davis Chiropractic employs a patient-centered approach to address rib and sternum pain. Here’s how chiropractic care can make a difference:

1. Comprehensive Assessment

The first step is a thorough assessment of the patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and a physical examination. This helps Dr. Davis and Dr. Joki understand the root cause of the pain and tailor a personalized treatment plan.

2. Spinal Adjustment

Dr. Davis and Dr. Joki will use spinal adjustments to correct misalignments in the spine, including the ribs and sternum. Gentle and precise manipulations help restore proper alignment, relieving pressure on nerves and reducing pain. They may also adjust the anterior ribs near the sternum, usually with the activator.

3. Soft Tissue Therapy

Soft tissue techniques such as massage, stretching, and myofascial release can complement spinal adjustments. These therapies aim to reduce muscle tension, improve flexibility, and enhance overall tissue health.

4. Posture Correction

Dr. Davis and Dr. Joki work with patients to address contributing factors like poor posture. They provide guidance on maintaining proper posture to prevent future misalignments and reduce the risk of recurring pain.

5. Education and Lifestyle Recommendations

Patients are educated on ergonomic practices, exercises, and lifestyle changes that can support their recovery and long-term well-being.

If you’re dealing with rib or sternum pain due to rib misalignments, Davis Chiropractic provides a holistic and effective approach to help you find relief. Consult with Dr. Davis and Dr. Joki to explore personalized solutions that address the underlying causes of your pain and improve your overall quality of life.
