  Title Chronic costochondritis in an adolescent competitive swimmer: A case report
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2010 Dec;54(4):271-275
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes A search of the literature revealed that the torso sustains very few swimming injuries. Costochondritis is a poorly understood condition that presents as pain and tenderness on the costochondral or chondrosternal joints without swelling, and may result from increased pulling by adjoining muscles to this region of the chest wall. This case study describes the conservative treatment (spinal manipulative therapy, Active Release Techniques therapy, rehabilitative exercise, and clinical acupuncture) and positive outcome of anterior chest wall pain in a competitive swimmer diagnosed as chronic costochondritis.
Une recherche dans la documentation révèle que la natation cause très peu de blessures au torse. Le syndrome de Tietze est une affection mal comprise dont les symptômes sont une douleur et une sensibilité aux articulations costales ou chondrosternales sans enflure, qui peuvent causer un étirement accru par les muscles adjacents de cette région de la paroi de la cage thoracique. Cette étude de cas décrit le traitement conservateur (thérapie manuelle de l’épine dorsale, techniques de relâchement actif, exercice de réhabilitation et acupuncture clinique) et les résultats positifs pour un nageur professionnel souffrant de douleur à la paroi thoracique antérieure qui avait reçu un diagnostic de syndrome de Tietze chronique.
