Why does it hurt when I breathe?

Are you having pain in or around your rib cage with a deep breath? Have you been sick recently and been coughing and sneezing? The pain is often sharp, one sided, very focal and makes it difficult to breathe normally.

As chiropractors, we see this pain type of pain quite a bit. Especially in the colder winter months when the incidence of illness goes up. The rib joints get misplaced with the increased work out from the coughing and sneezing. The intercostal muscles get strained as well and can cause an increase in irritation in the region.

How can we help?

-Examination to determine the source of the pain

-Chiropractic manipulation to the rib joints and thoracic spine

-Manual or instrument assisted soft tissue manipulation

-Cold laser therapy

-Therapeutic exercise

What can you do at home?



-Foam roll (to tolerance)
