    rib injuries

    how long do bruises, fractures and separations take to heal. Is there any way I can speed the healing? Its been 3 weeks and it still hurts.

    I have some weird sternum **** going on where I feel like I always have to pop it when I have been sitting for too long. What is that?

    oh yeah BTW it pops. sometimes more than 1 rib.

    I've got the exact same thing. Only thing I can attribute it to, without a qualified opinion, is tendons attached to the chest muscles after doing a hard chest workout.

    depending on the severity of the injury 2 weeks to 2 months for full recovery. (2 weeks for a bruise 2 months or more with a nasty fracture.)

    i felt that my acupuncturist had some luck speeding up the healing process, but as far as western medecine goes, they hand you an ace bandage and a bunch of advil.

    not getting hit in the rib again until you are better is going to be a big part of speeding up the healing process, although once you have an injury it's like a magnet, everyone just seems to hit there by instinct. i saw this rib protector vest made for boxers that i'm gonna get next time i have bruised/broken ribs.

    Honestly? It may take a LONG time to actually heal fully. The ribs are in constant motion...you can't exactly immobilize them.

    Do some websearching...you'll see what I mean. Injured ribs are bad bad news.

    The best thing you can do for them once you've taken some time off? Lots of stretching on the intercostals.

    Jesus Chavez cracked my sternum sparring. I had to stop training for 6 weeks because everytime I hit the bag with anything but straight punches it would hurt.

    Would have been nice to have insurance.

    I've broken ribs a couple times when I was too lazy to block or move out of the way.

    It wasn't really a big deal and after 2 or 3 weeks I was back in the gym but obviously not hard sparring.

    Let pain be your guide.

    If you take Jenfucious' advice, I'd go with the hickory flavored.
