Default Dislocated rib question.

I figured I will consult the M.Ds of gl4x4, Untill I find time to get to the chiropractor is there a way to get my ribs to pop back into place? I have tried heat and it hasn't really helped.

10,000lb ratcheting straps always come in handy for me for those odd jobs I need to fix.

Wrap one around your cage and gently ratchet till something pops.

I think it just needs to heal. An x-ray would tell otherwise. Might just have torn some of the goods in there. My ex "dislocated" a rib doing yoga, she went to the chiro but it pretty much took 2 weeks to heal, like it was a strain or tear.

I have never heard of dislocating a rib. I am very interested in the stories to follow.

Why do I have a felling chad or scooter may have something useful to add to this. I did hear a rumor that someone from the site had a rib perminately dislocated for reasons unknown....

Quit trying to suck your own cock. It will work its way back in.

But I can get soooo close.

And it sounds like time is the only solution.

Seriously, I have popped a rib out a couple times and the only thing that corrected it was a trip to the chiro.
When it happened to me, I could barely take a deep breath.

Pressure. Have someone run their fingers down the sides of your vertabrae, and find the spot that's popped out. Have them gently press and rub on the spot and it will help work its way back in.

Depends which way it popped out? I have a rib that was popped out of the socket inverted and have a hole in my cage where the rib went. It has been that way for almost 30 years. It never tried going back in itself.

I was rode into the boards in a hockey game. I wore my pads loose and the butt end of the stick went between the chest plate pads and into my ribs resulting in some serious pain for a few weeks.

I occasionally get a rib out of place, I don't feel it in my back, but it puts pressure at my sternum causing a severe aching pain in my chest. Trip to the chiro or a sports doctor does the trick.

Well I knocked one out in a dirt bike crash a year ago and that one goes in and out in a regular basis but doesn't bother me much. But the other day I knocked two more out on my left side jumping a truck like a idiot and these two kill. It's just hard to find time to go to dr. When your working 60 hour weeks

Tennis ball. Put it on the floor and lay on it and roll it around that spot. If it is going to go back in, that will do it. I also have a 6" foam roller I use to pop my back into place. The tennis ball will work better for individual ribs/vertebrae.

just saw this thread, and was thinking the same thing.

my brother uses not only the foam roller, tennis ball, but also a football from time to time.

when he does the 24 hour drive from Denver to Michigan, he'll use the football while he's driving to readjust his back en route...

I used a wooden pyramid I made out of two 2x4's stacked on top of each other and cut on a bandsaw and then sanded smooth. It helps when my back gets knotted up which is pretty much every day, I even take it with me when I stay away from home. Lay on it and place it where it hurts, but be careful because it can hurt.
