Vancouver, WA. – The patient’s flu turned into pneumonia which caused three weeks of constant coughing. It was the coughing that led to the worse back pain and rib pains that persisted even after the pneumonia was gone. Coughing and sneezing can cause injury to ribs, intercostal muscle tears (aka- muscles tears between the ribs), inflammation and pain even when trying to breathe. This is a condition that requires a chiropractor. Rib injuries generally respond well to chiropractic adjustments. Ribs need to move in order for the lungs to fully inflate. Chiropractic adjustments restore rib mobility and reduce rib pain. Call for a free evaluation if you have rib pain. (360) 567-1739.
