The Thoracic spine is the mid part of your back. It is not uncommon for the inter costal nerves to be irritated at the thoracic spine and to refer pain along the line of the ribs to the front of the chest. This pain is commonly mistaken as angina or heart pain. A chartered physiotherapist can differentiate between the two. True heart pain is investigated further by a heart specialist, but referred pain from the thoracic spine is relatively easily treated by manipulation.
