The medical team at Spine, Orthopedics and Rehabilitation offers chest pain treatment for the residents of Melbourne, Rockledge, Titusville, Palm Bay, and the surrounding communities in Florida. Chest pain is intimidating because it is linked to serious medical conditions, but sometimes it is just a sign of a neuromuscular abnormality.
What is Chest Pain?
Experiencing pain in your chest area can be alarming, but it may not necessarily mean that there is something seriously wrong. Like other areas of the body, the chest is comprised of nerves, bones, ligaments, and other structures that are prone to injury. The discomfort typically develops in the breast area, muscles, and rib cage. Chest pain of this nature may feel:
- Shooting pain
Symptoms typically worsen when the individual turns the torso and raises the arms. Coughing, sneezing, and breathing deeply may also produce the discomfort.
If you are experiencing chest pain, we recommend that you be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible to rule out any serious medical conditions.
What Causes Chest Pain?
Non-cardiac chest pain may be caused by:
- Rib fractures
- Auto accident trauma
What Are the Benefits of Chest Pain Treatment?
- Condition is accurately diagnosed
- Non-surgical, conservative treatment options
- Restores quality of life
- May minimize the risk of complications
What Should I Expect from My Chest Pain Treatment?
At SOAR, our team recommends intercostal nerve block treatments for neuromuscular chest pain. The injections contain medications that work on the intercostal nerves that are located under each of your ribs. Administering the medication helps to reduce inflammation and discomfort.
Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Chest Pain Treatment?
Your medical insurance may cover a portion of your chest pain treatment at our practice. After your consultation, our patient coordinator reviews your coverage and explains your out-of-pocket expenses. We understand that even after insurance, many people face financial challenges for covering the out-of-pocket costs. Speak with our patient coordinator about this to learn about any possible steps to help you manage your healthcare. You may be eligible for discounted rates, payment plans, and other options.
