Thoracic Neuropathy

Thoracic Neuropathy

Thoracic neuropathy refers to dysfunction or damage to the nerves in the mid-back region of the spine known as the thoracic spine. This area is composed of 12 vertebrae (T1 to T12) and is responsible for providing stability and protecting the organs in the chest.

 

Various conditions can lead to thoracic neuropathy, including nerve compression from herniated discs or spinal stenosis, trauma or injury to the thoracic spine, infections, inflammatory disorders, and tumors.

Symptoms of thoracic neuropathy can vary depending on the underlying cause and the specific nerves affected. Common symptoms include localized pain in the mid-back, radiating pain along the path of affected nerves, numbness or tingling sensations in the chest, abdomen, or around the ribcage, muscle weakness, and alterations in reflexes.
