can a back strain cause chest discomfort??

Dr. Howard Shapiro
Specializes in Internal Medicine
See below: If the strani involver the upper back, the nerves from that area affect the chest. Pain in the muscles of the upper back can radiate around the front of the chest. If the pain in your chest seems to be independent of the back problem, then you need to see your physician for an evaluation.
