Rib Pain Treatment Preston - Advanced Health
Skip to content


Your rib cage helps protect your most vital organs and is connected to the spine by three joints and to the breastbone by one joint. A dislocated rib that is forced out of alignment – whether it be due to injury or accident – can feel extremely uncomfortable and in severe cases can feel excruciating. If you have been diagnosed with a dislocated rib, it’s highly recommended to get treatment as soon as possible.

Symptoms of a dislocated rib:

  • Extreme pain when breathing.
  • Feeling numb around the ribcage.
  • Inflammation in the chest or near ribs, which can result in a chest cavity.
  • Poor posture as a result of a separated rib, which can cause strain on the spine.
  • Rib pain during physical activity, which can also impair breathing and put pressure on organs.
  • Rib misalignment caused by the way a woman’s body weight shifts forward during pregnancy.

Pain that intensifies when taking a deep breath, coughing, or during movement can be an indicative sign of a dislocated rib.Inflammation around the rib area and difficulty breathing are also signs of a rib dislocation or injury. It’s best to get appropriate medical and chiropractic care where needed to relieve pain and avoid your injuries from worsening. When symptoms get progressively severe around the ribcage or surrounding joints, it could cause a permanent rib injury, which can result in a painful condition to endure in your everyday life.If you’re experiencing severe pain, it’s best to contact a chiropractor as soon as possible to get appropriate treatment.

How long does it take for dislocated ribs to heal?

It’s hard to determine how long it can take for misaligned ribs to heal. It could take 1 week to 2 months. Whether you’ve had a slip, strained your body through sports injuries or been injured through a car accident, seeing a chiropractor to see what treatment you’ll be needing is essential to determine exactly what your recovery will look like. In some cases, chiropractic adjustments and manual adjustments by a chiropractor may be necessary to treat misaligned ribs and severe pain for patients.

Do you have a misaligned rib injury or a sharp pain in your rib cage?
