Pain in spine, feels like bruise and hurts to touch. Looking for some advice

Hi, I have been suffering from a pain in my spine for about 7 months. It feels like a bruise but only hurts when touched and is just below my bra strap. I gave birth to my first child 14 months ago and had an epidural . I have never suffered from this before and when I press on the area the bone feels like it has a dip in it? Any ideas or advice on this would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Dear Stevenson,
welcome to health care majic,
your complaints are suggestive of facet locking at mid thoracic level. You need to unlock it by an experienced Physiotherapist who is certified in Manual therapy techniques. Along with this hot fomentation and Ultrasound therapy will be helpful.

wish your pain will come down very soon.
