Abdominal and Chest Pain Treatment in Colorado
If you are having severe chest or abdominal pain and need immediate treatment, it is best to have physical examination or go to an emergency room first. Because chest and abdominal pain can be a symptom of such severe conditions as a heart attack or appendicitis, our Bodywork and trigger point therapies should always be second to traditional medical treatment.
Other than those conditions listed above, there are types of conditions that aren’t so severe and can be remedied with the abdominal and chest pain treatment in Colorado at Structura Body Therapies.
Conditions that Require Chest Pain Treatment in Colorado Springs
Heart disease is one of the most worrisome conditions that are related to chest pain. Heart disease occurs when the heart or the blood vessels around the heart are impaired. This can cause satellite trigger points to form down the torso, shoulder, arm, hand, and more. Additionally, heart disease creates a huge risk for a heart attack.
However, trigger points can also caused by:
- Repetitive activities involving lifting or sitting for long periods of time
- Structural imbalances
- Excess weightlifting
- Sports injuries
- Auto accidents
- Chest surgery
- Illnesses with severe coughing
- Breast implants
There is also a syndrome called Pectoralis Minor Syndrome, which mimics the symptoms of heart disease. This happens when blood vessels are trapped underneath the pectoralis minor muscle in the chest and shoulder. Structura Body Therapies can treat this condition only once heart disease has been ruled out.
Conditions that Cause Abdominal Pain
There are additional trigger points that can develop in the abdominal area and cause a variety of problems with your health. Included are:
- Urinary track disease
- Food intolerance
- General abdominal pain
- Painful menstruation
If you’re certain that you don’t have a life-threatening condition, Structura Body Therapies will be able to help you recover from your chest or abdominal pain by using a variety of techniques to include structural and massage therapies, that target the active trigger points in your body.
