Rib pain can be caused by muscle, bone and nerve issues. Two common conditions which occur to the ribs are rib fractures (typically occur due to trauma or weak bones) and slipped rib syndrome.
Are you Suffering from a Slipped Rib?
Have you ever felt a sharp pain in the upper or mid area of your back, between the shoulder blades? Moreover, have you ever experienced this sharp localized pain while taking a deep breath? Has this pain ever gone from being localized in the back to referring to the side and front aspect of the torso? These are all symptoms of what has been referred to as a ‘slipped rib’ or ‘slipped rib syndrome’.
