Im not doing physical therapy right now but I'm going to ask my orthopedic doctor about it. I feel they can steer me in the right direction. Thank you

Does anyone have any ideas on what low impact exercises I can do while my ribs are healing. I heard swimming is not good but I don't know. Thx?

Hello. My name is Karen. I have asthma and bronchitis I've had since I was 21. I'm now 60 yrs old. I was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia a fast and irregular heartbeat. Its not as serious as Afib but can turn into a Afib with time. I had a procedure done called cryoablation the part of the ventricle that is causing the heartbeat to race is frozen.and the heart is 'reset' in a sense. Afib is treated in the same way. I cracked multiple ribs 6months ago and some of them are slow to heal and the pain is relentless esp from coughing from my asthma. I finally went to a orthopedic Dr and was diagnosed with osteopenia and degenerative disc disease. Not a diagnosis I'm happy with but at least we're on the right track with being treated for the right issues. Hope everything works out for you.

Breathing is ok. Trying to cough and move is painful. It's very frustrating right now

Thank you. Do you have a guess how how long the healing takes? When I go back to work will I need to tough it out and deal with the pain while I'm working/moving . I appreciate any thoughts .

Hi everyone. My name is Karen. I’ve been dealing with between 3-12 cracked ribs according to a hospital diagnosis which started as a bad cough from asthma/bronchitis. I’ve been off work because of the pain . I go back and. Can’t finish the shift . I’m stressing out about my job and the financial concerns that come up.

After a chiropractor appointment I felt worse. My coughing from asthma is aggravating it.
