Rib Dysfunction

This condition is marked by a sharp stabbing pain in the back or side of the ribs. The pain can often radiate around to the front of the ribs, and is almost always most noticeable on inspiration.

Doctor's Treatment Plan
Treatment involves reducing the inflammation to the muscles and nerves surrounding the ribs. This is accomplished through electric muscle stimulation and various soft-tissue release techniques. In the event of rib subluxation we have gentle procedures to adjust the rib.

  Note: It should always be considered that not all injuries are spinal related, and therefore not all injuries can be fully corrected with the benefit of chiropractic medicine. Further, the injury profiles and recommendations for treatment should in no way be used as a substitute for the care of a physician.
