Rib Brace for Fractured, Cracked or Dislocated Rib
Rib Brace can conservatively treat a fractured, bruised, or sprained rib without any splinting, surgery, etc. However, the road to fractured rib recovery can be a difficult, painful one. Many people find rib wraps for cracked ribs, like these, to be quite helpful thanks to the support and pain relief they provide to the surrounding muscles. In addition, wearing a cracked rib wrap can help reduce inflammation and encourage blood flow to the site in the interest of quick healing.
How can you tell if you have a broken rib?
The 12 pairs of rib bones, as well as with the breastbone, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles that support them, form your rib cage. Some of these muscles are used for breathing.
After a rib injury, breathing can be difficult and very painful as the muscles attached to your ribcage pull on your ribs with every breath.
In addition, fractured, cracked, or dislocated ribs often cause pain (especially with movement of your ribcage), muscle spasms, crunching/grinding sounds when touching or moving the injury site, or visible deformity—depending upon the type and severity of your injury.
Am I at risk?
The most common cause of a fractured rib is a trauma or direct blow to your chest, usually resulting from a car accident or a bad fall.
Simply coughing hard can cause chest and abdominal muscle strain, sometimes enough to break a rib.
Those with weaker bones due to advanced age, osteoporosis, cancer, etc. are at higher risk of withstanding a cracked rib.
Reasons Why You’ll Love Our Rib Brace
Elastic Rib Brace Provides Targeted Compression and Support
This wrap for cracked rib treatment is constructed of two three-inch wide elastic panels. These elastic panels are supportive yet flexible, so they are comfortable against your skin and allow for a high degree of movement. The material of this Rib Brace is free of latex.

Fit is very important when it comes to wearing a rib belt for a broken rib. If your rib belt for fractured ribs fits too tightly and your lungs cannot fully expand, this could lead to serious complications, such as an infection or pneumonia.
For this reason, our belt offers this wrap for broken rib treatment in a straight design geared towards men, as well as a contoured version for women’s rib fractures. A plus size version that works for fractured rib care in both men and women is also available.
Entire Brace Is Velcro Compatible
Rib Brace provides support and protection that is needed for treatment for a bruised rib, rib muscle strain or even a cracked rib. The popular female rib belt is contoured to fit the curves of a woman’s body. Plus it will not conflict with one’s breasts, as might be the case with male or unisex rib belts.
This rib belt for bruised ribs and more is constructed of breathable, elastic material that is soft against the skin and stretchy. The elastic rib belt is 6 inches wide and it can be easily secured or adjusted at the front of one’s body via a hook-and-loop (Velcro) closure. This material is also free of latex.
Broken rib treatment does not have to be a complicated or expensive affair. This brace provides support and protection to the ribs that may well be needed following a fracture, sprain or some other injury to them. Talk to us to get more information on the product.
