Rib pain can be very painful and can even be severe enough to affect your ability to breathe. The rib pain can be in the back, the side, of even in the front of the rib cage. Although rib fractures are common with a history of trauma, most rib pain is due to joint dysfunction, where the rib meets the spine. Many times, the cause of rib joint dysfunction is excessive coughing, sneezing, lifting a heavy weight, or lifting on object far away from the body with one hand.
Chiropractic doctors are experts in correcting the joint dysfunction that can be causing your rib pain. The doctors at Newman Chiropractic are experts at alleviating the rib pain, correcting joint dysfunction, and the causes of your joint dysfunction, so your rib pain does not return.
