Resource: Missed upper thoracic syndrome

Musculoskeletal problems stemming from the upper thoracic spine are often missed or misdiagnosed as cervical in nature, by both physiotherapists and medical professionals alike. This leads to partial or non resolution of the client’s symptoms, leaving the health professional confounded and client helpless and frustrated. This article discusses how this may happen and looks at the diagnosis and management of a client who had both cervical and thoracic problems, but presented like a cervical disc lesion.
