Rib Fracture Symptoms and Treatment

At Holistiq Spine & Orthopaedic Clinic, where we understand the debilitating effects of rib fractures and are dedicated to providing effective pain management solutions. If you’ve experienced a rib fracture due to a variety of causes such as blunt trauma, severe coughing, or athletic activities, we’re here to help you regain comfort and mobility.

Understanding Rib Fractures

Rib fractures are a common consequence of thoracic trauma, with causes ranging from accidents to medical conditions like bone metastases. Patients often report moderate to severe chest wall pain, localized tenderness, and discomfort exacerbated by deep breaths. These fractures can sometimes be associated with internal injuries, necessitating prompt and accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Comprehensive Diagnosis

We prioritize thorough diagnosis to tailor treatment plans for each patient. While chest radiographs are often sufficient for diagnosis, in cases where further imaging is necessary, we utilize advanced techniques such as chest computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for precise evaluation. Our team of specialists is equipped to identify even subtle rib fractures, ensuring comprehensive care.

Effective Pain Management

Managing pain associated with rib fractures is crucial to prevent complications like pneumonia and atelectasis. Our approach may include medications as well as minimally invasive procedures, providing targeted pain relief and promoting faster recovery.

Promoting Recovery and Return to Normal Activities

Following treatment, our team provides comprehensive follow-up care to monitor progress and address any lingering concerns. We emphasize the importance of gradual return to activities, tailoring recommendations based on each patient’s condition and lifestyle. Whether you’re eager to resume sports or return to work, we’re here to support your journey to full recovery.
