Re: Broken ribs & Laceration

Hello Beth

Sorry to hear that you are still in pain.
The broken ribs and laceration should of heal in a couple of months. Taking the medication will mask your pain and could hinder your recovery. You may feel better than you actually are and hurt yourself more when you are taking the pain medication.

My concern would be that you hit your back hard enough to also cause your spinal alignment to be abnormal and set your self up for long term problems if left unchecked. Maybe you should have a Chiropractic check up and see if you have lost any of the normal spinal curves. You might find our website helpful. Good luck!

Silicone inserts leave the epicondyle pressure-free and provide an intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
