Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects your ribs to your breast bone. Depending on how much inflammation there is, it can range from a mild annoyance to extremely painful.
The causes of costochondritis aren’t clear, but may include:
Estimates are that 60% to 70% of people with fibromyalgia have symptoms very similar to costochondritis.
Costochondritis is typically a minor injury that heals within days. If costochondritis symptoms don’t clear up, they could be a sign that something else, such as fibromyalgia, is going on.
Symptoms of Costochondritis
Pain in the chest wall and ribcage is the chief symptom of costochondritis. Generally, it will get worse with activity or exercise. Taking a deep breath can also cause more pain, because it stretches the inflamed cartilage. Sneezing and coughing can increase pain as well.
Costochondritis pain can also radiate to your shoulder and arms as well, transferred there by the many nerves that branch away from the chest. (This is another way in which costochondritis mimics a heart attack.)
Sometimes, costochondritis pain is accompanied by redness and/or swelling in the most painful areas. This is when it’s called Tietze’s Syndrome.
If you have not been diagnosed with Costochondritis please consult your health care practitioner first as it involves chest pain. If you have been diagnosed already and tried all of the typical treatments with little or no relief then an energy healing session may be just what you need to feel better.
Energy healing is a way of transferring what is known bio energy, life force energy, chi energy, prana energy, reiki energy, or zero point energy to you for the purpose of bring healing and restoration to the area of concern, in this case your ribs and breast bone area.
I specialize in what is known as remote energy healing which means that your healing session is done by phone or Skype. As strange as this sounds it is very effective for pain relief. So much so that many of the top hospitals all over the country are incorporating energy healing into their complimentary medicine programs. Dr Oz is also a strong proponent of energy healing.
How does a remote energy healing session for costochondritis work, I will walk you through the process. You log onto my site and book an hour session. I contact you for the most convenient time. I call you at the agreed upon time and take some history on when the pain started and the pain intensity level from 1-10, 10 being the highest pain level.
I then ask you to close your eyes, relax, and lightly focus on the area of pain. I begin sending healing energy into the rib area for about twenty minutes. After the first 20 min I ask you if the pain level changed. Most of my client report a significant reduction in pain within the first 20 min. We repeat this process until the pain is gone. In some cases two or more sessions may be necessary.
If you are suffering from costochondritis feel free to book your healing session now.
