Back Pain Radiating To Ribs

Back pain radiating to the ribs is referring to pain coming from the spine and spreading towards the ribs and ribcage. This pain is an unpleasant feeling spreading initially from the back and then towards the sides of the body commonly called "thoracic spine pain". Most thoracic pain is the result of postural strain, and causes of pain in the ribs include muscle strains, fractures, inflammation of cartilage, and subluxation (displacement) of the thoracic vertebra or rib.
