Slipped Rib / Costochondritis

Your ribs originate from your spine, then wrap around your body where they connect to your sternum. When a rib slips out of place, significant discomfort could be felt either at your back, your chest, or both. The cause of a slipped rib could range from improper posture, to sudden heavy lifting or trauma. Patients with a slipped rib usually notice that their pain is slightly relieved by breathing shallow. Because there are many life threatening causes of back or chest pain, it is important to have a good physician perform an exam to rule out more serious pathology such as heart or lung conditions. Those who suffer from a slipped rib or costochondritis usually experience significant relief with a single chiropractic treatment.
