Find out if your ribs are broken

Broken ribs are much more serious than bruised ribs and can have very dangerous complications. A broken rib can pierce a lung or another organ if it is not dealt with right away.

Run your hands gently across your rib-cage checking for swelling, protrusions or dents. If there is light swelling but nothing too serious then you probably have bruised rather than broken ribs. However, if it is very painful or impossible to take a deep breath then you should get to a doctor as soon as possible.

Ice the area

Ice will bring down the swelling and numb the pain of your bruised ribs. It can also help to heal the area much more quickly than if you leave it alone.

Take painkillers

Bruised ribs will probably be fairly painful for quite a long time, so learn how to manage the pain without medication as much as you can, using ice, but feel free to take painkillers through the worst of the pain. Ask your doctor if they can prescribe something strong for the early days.

Manage your breathing

Taking a deep breath might be uncomfortable, but you should try to take one prolonged breath in every hour or so. This will help to keep your breathing steady and stop you from becoming lightheaded. If you smoke – stop smoking at least until your injuries are healed.
