    Your chest pains are caused by pinched nerves in your back for they often send the pains around your body on the nerves to be pains in the rib, chest or heart areas! When the nerves get pinched they tighten up the muscles around them which trap them in that pain mode! To get rid of your chest pains you have to free up your back muscles to release the nerves and heres how to free them up:Back: (do from a sitting position)Place your left hand on your left leg next to your body! Place your right hand over your left shoulder, fingers over the back and the palm in the front and firmly pull down on them and hold! After 30 seconds slowly lower your body forward and to the outside of your left leg, keeping your left arm fairly straight as you do! When you reach your lap remain there for another 10 seconds, release the pressure but rest there for another 30 seconds! Then reverse your hand positions and do your right side! Your whiplash is from tight muscles in your neck that get kind of locked in that pain mode! To get rid of that you have to free up your neck muscles and heres how to free them up:NeckPut your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on the back of the muscle behind your neck! Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold! Relax your body! After about 30 to 45 seconds, when you don’t feel the muscles releasing any longer, slowly lower your head as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your neck lowered for another 30 seconds! For both- for best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed!

    If you can't account for the feeling (such as slept on the arm or were in a recent injury) you I would call my physician and see then as soon as possible. A heart attack would cause PAIN extending from your chest into either arm and also possibly into your back. You can literally feel the pain all the way down the nerve.
