Suggest treatment for severe back pain
Muscular spasm due to bad posture or dorsal spondylosis.
I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon
You have severe pain posteriorly in your rib cage on right side which increases on taking deep breath.
Since you have no history of injury and are normal and active otherwise I would think about the pain due to a muscular spasm may be due to a bad posture while sleeping or it could be due to dorsal spine spondylosis.
Other possibility is lung infection, but lack of fever goes against it.
I suggest take pain killers, muscle relaxants and hot fomentation for few days and if there is no relief then get an X ray of the area.
Thanks for the question. Please feel free to ask any further question.
I don't have poor posture and have good mattress, and what is spine spondylosis? is it chronic?
also, chiropractor said a rib was out of place. I know they have a different approach and philosophy but is that possible without an injury?
also , the chiropractor said a rib was out of place. how is that possible without an injury?
Could be due to muscular spasm.
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon
Bad posture does not mean that you have bad posture habitually, It means that while sleeping or other activities , you have been in a different position evoking muscular spasm in back.
Dorsal spine spondylosis is a degenerative process in the spine same as you have in the neck and lower back.
In medical terms rib out of place is either due to fracture of ribs or severe muscular spasm . Muscular spasm will bring the ribs together and they may appear to be out of place.
I hope I have answered your question. Please feel free to ask any further question.
Spondylosis is equivalent tp spinal arthritis
Spondylosis is equivalent to spinal arthritis which is chronic in nature .
I cannot ge you any meicines on this platform, I can only suggest the medicines you may take .
Nothing can equal a doctor's examination and then arriving at a diagnosis- only symptoms are never adequate to arrive at a diagnosis.
