Rib Pain

WHAT IS RIB PAIN?

Rib pain can be very painful or just an annoying ache. Although the rib cage is a stable structure to protect the heart, lungs and other organs, it is also a very mobile structure and each individual rib needs to move frequently. A lot of muscles attach onto the ribs, so if a rib stops moving properly, the muscle attached to it may go into spasm causing discomfort. Rib pain is not a serious condition and can be resolved easily. It may be a sign of poor posture or sustained incorrect posture, where there is lack of movement over long periods of time.
