For the most part, any chest pain that is experienced should be first reported to your primary care physician or cardiologist. However, when the chest pain is not of cardiac origin and there is no infection of the lung, one condition that is treatable is known as cervical angina (neck is causing the chest pain). This condition can manifest itself as thorax chest pain. Also a benign cardiac chest pain may also be treated with spinal cord stimulator/neuromodulation treatment. On rare occasions, early stages of conditions like shingles or post herpetic neuralgia of the chest can be treated in combination with spinal cord stimulator, antidepressants, anti-seizure medications, or specific nerve blocks that target the dorsal root ganglion. Those patients who have had open heart surgery may develop a burning type of chest pain that can be easily treated with external electrical stimulators that are implanted underneath the skin. Chest pain can be from esophageal spasms, reflux, hiatal hernia, just to name a few

If you have any problem of you chest, you should come to see Dr. Minehart for you chest pain.
