  1. :I recently fell and bruised my ribs during sport, and went to see my physio. He told me that when you crack or bruise a rib the treatment is the same because there is nothing you can do for it. The one thing with a rib injuries is that because you have damaged the rib, your breathing changes depending on how bad the injury is. To aviod getting ill from this there are some breathing exercise you can do. You can find out what they are from any hospital. Also, depending on how badly you have bruised the rib depends on how long it backs to heal. The average time is about 2 weeks before you can go back to any physical activity. But they will still be a bit tender for another 2 weeks after that. I hope I have helped.
