pain in back

My mom went to a chiropractor & he said she had a dislocated rib. She did not fall. She just put up a lightweight curtain rod & lifted part of a mattress (not for a 74-year-old to do). He said he saw her rib sticking out in her back. What is this & is he right? Is there such thing as that, a dislocated rib?

Thank you

The BioSkin Hinged Knee Skin is the lightest hinge available. The bicentric aluminum alloy hinge is offset to eliminate pressure at the joint line.
