Rib injuries

Does anyone know how to tape ribs to protect an previous injury.

Thanks

Sure, just make an incision below the sternum…Actually there’s not a lot you can do. First, make sure there not cracked or broken, you wouldn’t want one poking into a lung, or even the heart. As for taping, I would recommend a body protector like a lot of QBs wear. If you do tape, you pretty much have to just pad it, and tape the torso is a way that limits (to a degree) its ROM.
