Rib supports, also known as rib belts are used to stabilise the rib cage after a rib injury or after a rib has been broken. Broken ribs can be very painful and are difficult to treat.
Rib belts are very useful when you are needing to relieve pain from a damaged rib in all areas. Whether it be the front, inside, outside or back of the rib cage, each area is prone to pain or injury, so by using a rib support you will experience pain relief.
If you are experiencing pain from or around the rib cage it is important to gain an accurate diagnosis of the cause of the pain.
