Thoracic spine is located in the chest area and contains 12 vertebrae. The ribs connect to the thoracic spine and protect many vital organs. Next is the lumbar spine. Most people have five lumbar vertebrae although it is not unusual to have six. The lumbar vertebrae are larger than the cervical or thoracic as this spinal region carries most of the body weight. Thoracic spine is the second most commonly injured area in rowers after lumbar spine. It is considered to be the least mobile area of all vertebral column. This is due to the length of the transverse processes, the costovertebral joints, decrease in disc height when compared to the lumbar spine and the rib cage. Movements that occur in the thoracic spine are mostly rotation and flexion and extension. Rowers inherently become limited into extension with all of us. This is because of the amount of time that rowers are in a seated position and the tendency for rowers to fall into thoracic spine flexion. This is especially when fatigued. It is essential that rowers do regular flexibility exercises to maintain their thoracic extension and rotation, to avoid such a thoracic spine problems. Otherwise, they place themselves at risk of rib stress fractures, facet and costovertebral joint irritation. This can often refer pain to the chest wall or muscle trigger points in the erector spine, rhomboids, levator scapulae or upper trapezius that we report as thoracic spine problems.
