Thoracic or “upper back” pain responds quickly!

Oct 20/10
Since a bad fall down the stairs in college, this 36 year old has experienced recurrent episodes of severe “bra area” pain that radiates around the right side of her chest. It will “go out” with a bad cough and is aggravated by taking a deep breath. She had a reoccurrence 4 days ago. PT has worked for her in the past but today with the McKenzie Method she was amazed at the fast relief AND the fact this relief occurred without machines or even the therapist’s hands. We tried this hands off approach on the first day because someone with recurrent episodes is best served if they can learn to “put it back in” themselves. This type of problem typically resolves in 2 or 3 visits, only a few need some extra hands-on help. The goal is that she manage on her own in the future.
