Re: Cracked rib from adjustment?

Thanks for your response. You were exactly right, the pain has gradually increased. Any idea how long the pain will increase? Also, is this cracked rib problem common with Chiropractic? I suspect that my rib problem started following an adjustment last week, I mentioned the "Hitch" or "Twinge" that I felt (thinking pulled muscle?) to my Chiro on Monday at my adjustment - the pain got noticeably worse on Tuesday when I was doing some light lifting - which required bending over. Can you be more specific about how to not aggravate the rib problem - and if I should have my back/neck adjusted differently, now?
