I was grappling with a big SOB tonight. (I’m 210; he’s 315.) Long story short, while we’re wrestling, I twist the wrong way and experience a delightful “pop” around my rib. It now hurts like hell to move, breathe, sneeze, think, etc.
I know this is a fairly common injury, but I’ve read mixed views on treatment. Does the ever-knowledgable T-Nation community have an opinion on whether it’s worthwhile to have a subluxated rib - if indeed it’s out of place - put back in by a chiro or sports doc? Some claim this speeds recovery tremendously, while others insist that only rest will heal this ailment.
For what it’s worth, I don’t think it’s broken, but the injury is definitely visible and easily detectable by running my fingers over the area.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
