Our user asked: "Here's a strange one for you. I'bve been playing guita for decades, and everything is the exact same - - - guitar, chair, posture, etc, that I've been using for decades as well. About 2 months ago, after about 1/2 hour of playing, seated, I begin to feel a dull aching in the muscles/ligaments of my right side, in the rib cage area. This is not a sharp pain at all, just like the feeling of a sore muscle. This only happens while playing the guitar, never any time else. As soon as I stop playing the guitar and stand up the symptoms vanish. Strange one, yes? Any comments are appreciated. Thanks!!"
Ask a PT Response: "First thing that comes to my mind is postural. Your body does change over the years and perhaps something may be impinging when you are sitting and playing the guitar. Perhaps at the costovertebral joints at the thoracic spine. Best probably to have a PT with orthopedic manual therapy experience evaluate you to determine what may be contributing to your condition so that a plan of care can be developed."
