Three days ago while playing in a Basketball tournement.
I took an offensive charge.
I took a huge blow from an oppnents shoulder directly into the right side of my rib cage.
I could actually feel my rib flex inward from the blow.
The point of contact was directly under my right pectorial muscle.
Since sustaining this injury I have been in great pain when positioning myself to lie down. Also I cannot bend over to pick anything up.
I was told that if it were broken I’d have pain when breathing so I believe it to only be a bruise.
I’ve soaked in epsom salt and I try lying on a pillow what can I do to speed the recovery and stop the pain?
