Bruised Ribs

This weekend I was invloved in a man to man collision on an ice hockey rink. The collision caused me to be winded, but once I as able to breath again, I had some sharp pains in my chest that have not gone away. I dont think I have broken ribs, but possibly bruised, what can I do to recover from this injury. I was thinking of bandaging my chest (left side) or ice….What do you suggest?

  1. Morgan, I think you might want to go back and do your home work a little bit more. Every article execpt for yours says to put ice on your ribs to take away the swelling.

  2. DO NOT BANDAGE IT! DON’T USE ICE EITHER!OTC (Over the counter) aspirin helps relieve pain and so does heat. (heat, heat,heat!NO COLD!)Use a heating pad or a hot rag. Ribs have to heal NATURALLY. See a doctor for TROUBLE breathing (not just pain, if you cough up blood, and if the pain gets WORSE. I hope I was of some assistance.I did my research. (Don’t laugh but I’m 12)

  3. I HAVE PAIN IN MY LEFT RIB CAGE AND EVEN IN THE MIDDLE WHAT TO DO ABOUT THE PAIN ANY SUGGESTIONS IT HURTS TO TOUCH OR TO COUGH OR BEND OVER I DON’T KNOW IF I BRUISED THEM OR BROKE THEM OR CRACKED WHAT DO YOU THINK

  4. Several years ago, for some reason, I began having my lower left rib twist, causing me to gasp and wait until it went back in …I was told this was a “floating rib”, which I had never had in my life. Over the years, I learned to live with it and to be careful how I bent forward. Last week, while in the jacuzzi, I leaned over the edge to get ice, and felt this tremendous pressure, and knew the rib went back into place. It doesn’t stick out now, but I can’t lie on my side and allow any pressure. I assume it is just bruised, although, I seems to be getting worse.
