Post-Laminectomy Syndrome

The intercostal nerves are located in the muscles beneath your ribcage. When these nerves are compromised, you may feel sudden pain in the chest, beneath the ribs, or when performing an action like sneezing or coughing. This is known as intercostal neuralgia, and it can commonly be caused by a herpes zoster infection (“shingles”) or a surgical incision.

If you’re living with intercostal pain, The Physicians Spine & Rehabilitation Specialists have non-surgical treatment options that can help you find relief. Our team of doctors, therapists, and physical rehabilitation specialists can provide a thorough assessment of your condition and develop an individualized treatment plan to help you find relief and regain your quality of life.
