About 2 times a month we have patients come in the clinic with extremely specific excruciating pain around their rib cage. They mistake this pain for a heart attack which eventually leads them to visit the E.R. . After all the tests come back negative they end up in our practice still in pain needing help. The patient identifies the pain by taking a deep breath or upon inhalation, it persists until the tissue around the rib is mobile again.
A pain intense enough to send someone to the emergency room can be relieved with a simple rib adjustment as shown in the picture above. It won’t be 100% relieved with one adjustment but it will be close. If you’ve ever had a rib subluxation you will know it can be resolved quickly. Especially if you are getting adjusted regularly before the rib misplaces and the pain initiates. Though a rib being subluxated is not close to a heart attack the pain is easily a 9/10. Your Chiropractor or Physical Therapist should know what to do if this description fits your symptoms. In Alabama? Come visit Archetype, our doctors have been doing rib adjustments for years :)Dr John

This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood
