Rib & Chest Pain

Call us at Sapphire Chiropractic today, for any concerns of pain in the ribs or sternum. Malfunctioning rib joints or what some refer to as “ribs being out of place” can cause significant pain when you laugh, sneeze or even take deep breaths. Other symptoms you might be experiencing are sharp, intense pain that can include bruising, swelling, difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, and hearing a popping sound with this pain. It is important to keep the ribs working properly.

Is there an underlying issue?

Rib pain can be caused from different conditions ranging from joint malfunction and sprain/strain to serious conditions like heart attack or cancer. It is important to find the true cause of the pain and treat it correctly. We conduct a thorough exam and get to the root of the issue to help resolve chronic or acute rib pain.

Chiropractic Care for Ribs

Chiropractic is an effective treatment for most rib conditions. While most people use the term “dislocated ribs” for rib pain, most of the time it is actually just the tissue around the joint getting irritated from improper movement. Once the source of your rib pain is identified we can begin a proper treatment to get you relief and back doing the things you love. At Sapphire Chiropractic, we strive to provide you with quality care that you can trust and count on.
