Hello, my name is Melissa and I am writing in regards to my boyfriend who broke his rib nearly one year ago. He has had it looked at by a doctor but I am just not convinced because he is in a lot of pain when he moves. I think that he broke his tenth rib and had a costochondral separation. The rib sticks out very far and seems to be moving around. Is there anything that he can do to help him from this pain. Thanks so much!
