Professional Rib Pain Treatment

A rib injury is exceptionally difficult to deal with, and symptoms can occur at any time. Physiotherapy and chiropractic are beneficial therapies because they target the source of pain directly, which helps you recover quicker without taking medicine or requiring surgery. You might have sustained an injury in a car crash, and we want to help you recuperate so that you don’t suffer long-term consequences. As a result of our 30 years of expertise treating car accident injuries in Portland, we want to help you recover so that you will not be negatively impacted any longer.

Why Seek Rib Pain Treatment

Injuries resulting from automobile collisions may be painful. Neck pain, for example, may not manifest immediately after the incident. It’s crucial to visit a physician if you sustain an injury because untreated, long-term pain will turn into chronic pain. If you suffered whiplash in Portland, Oregon, you might be eligible for personal injury protection (PIP) insurance, which would cover any expenses connected with your treatment. It’s preferable not to assume that the pain will disappear without first seeking professional assistance.

What to Expect from Treatment at Portland Wellness Care

Before a recovery plan can be given, we assess your condition and conduct any diagnostic testing that will help determine the best therapeutic treatment. Physiotherapy, physical rehabilitation, chiropractic care, and massage therapy are among the non-invasive therapies we offer patients who require rehabilitation following an injury. Portland Wellness Care is here to help those who require post-injury care!

Causes & Effects of Rib Pain

Rib pain is typically caused by an injury that occurred around the chest. This can come from trauma during a car accident, sports match, or even just a trip and fall. Rib pain will occur when the body has sustained some sort of injury. The rib injuries that turn into pain include the following:

  • Broken or fractured ribs
  • Chest strains or injuries
  • Lung injuries or inflammation

 

After sustaining a rib injury, there are a number of painful symptoms that can occur. These are the most common results from a ribcage injury:

  • Trouble breathing
  • Sharp pain during movement
  • Coughing and wheezing

 

Luckily, ribs can be adjusted and corrected with therapy techniques like physiotherapy and chiropractic care. Not only are the rib bones highly sensitive, but so are the surrounding soft tissues, which is another area that we target during our healing approach. The recovery from a rib injury can seem like a lengthy and daunting process, but with our methods, we are able to relieve your pain and improve your mobility without the use of prescription medications or invasive surgeries.

We’d be happy to discuss treatment options if you’ve been injured in any way to your ribcage. Please come see us today if you have any pain associated with your ribs, so we can help you get back on track as soon as possible.
