I would like to know if somebody has the same problem as me. My thoracic spine at T5 or T6 hurts when i put my chin down toward my chest. This is something that has been affecting me for a little while, around 5-6 weeks or so. It all started when I visited a chiro for a sciatic nerve pain, where he told me to lay on the patient bed and then take a deep breath which he after pushed on my upper back between my scapulas on my T5-T6. I could hear a loud pop and immediately after a irritated upper back. He told me the pain should disappear in a day, it didn't disappear but the pain is not as bad as the time where he pushed on my back. I went to the doc and I asked if it could be a inflamed muscle, she told me that I should train my back in order to improve from the pain. Sometimes the pain can also be there and sometimes it disappears, but if I apply heat therapy it somewhat improves. Also I am able to pop my sternum when my upper back is really irritated. My chiro told me that my right leg is 7-8 millimeters shorter than my left leg, he pushed on my lumbar spine to correct the ''postural imbalance'' but I don't know if I can believe the fact that I have a postural imbalance or if such thing even exists. My doc even told me that I have a mild s****osis but not a severe one, my back still looks fine. I don't know if training ruined my posture.
Does anyone have an idea for the cause of my pain in the back?
