ABSTRACT
This case represents an individual who develops chest pain in a rehabilitation setting. It provides a description of possible assessments and investigations to screen for cardiovascular health. A thorough history and investigation can present a challenge in determining a definite diagnosis. Chiropractors who encounter patients in a rehabilitation program that develop chest pain must address the cardiac versus non-cardiac nature of the condition.
