Broken rib injury
If you have been the victim of a car accident you may have suffered from a broken or fractured rib. Breaking your rib can be tremendously painful. You may experience swelling, bruising and tenderness. Breaking a rib can also feel like you can only take shallow breaths but doctors advise trying to breathe as normally as possible to prevent chest infections.
Breaking other bones in your body can sometimes involve a cast being applied but for broken ribs, which are internal injuries, you will have to let the body heal on its own. Doctors advise that while you are recovering from a broken rib you will need to take painkillers for the pain you are experiencing and you may find benefit from an icepack to soothe the affected area. Breathing exercises may also help with your injuries.
If you have suffered broken ribs after a car accident in South Northamptonshire you may need to take time off work to rest which could cost you money if you are not being paid for your leave. You will need to refrain from lifting heavy items or taking part in anything too strenuous.
