Corrine: The muscles in between your ribs are delicate and do take time to heal. Its like the back, you feel it in almost all you do. Take your time, do things that don't directly hit your core right now, ie legs, arms, etc.... Within a month or two, you should be able to start working the core, but very slowly. The doc is right, does not make sence to do xray, just RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation).
Glad to see you joined us, please keep us informed and if you need more detailed info about anything, just ask, we have a great and very caring group here!

I had a rib fracture in August 2010, now it's November. My Dr says not to worry it takes time. My question is how do I know the rib is healed in place without xray. My dr says I don't need one. Anyone out there with same problem

Guys tonight I am using both heat and Ice to help out my lower back pain. My tennis partner said he'll see me next year.

Daniel, your right about the inversion table.
David, I would use heat infrequently and only to augment cold. I'm a big believer in cold treatment. I even use cold after my workouts as a maintenance measure. After my back was hurt I made sure it never happened again. "SLOWLY" build a great core and you will minimize this ever happening again. There's not much you can do with a messed up back! Don't exercise yet, just rest and ice. Recovery is a slow process, be patient with yourself.

Daniel/Ed, thanks for the advice. The pain in my lower back is almost gone. I’ve been going to the chiropractor for the last week. This is the first time my back has acted up like this. Even my chiropractor had problem putting my back, back in place. Right at this moment I have a TENS unit and heat on my back. I tried to do something really stupid tonight by jumping a rope. Wow there was some pain in my legs after one jump. Guys I’ll keep you informed. Thank you.

Hello David, you may want to investigate using or getting yourself an inversion table. It will help decompress your spine, stretch your muscles. I have one from "Hang Ups", it was less than $300, very well built it's excellent and easy to use. I've been using mine for years.

David, slow down and "do not" do leg work right now. Focus on your core, abs and back muscles. First and most importantly, "REST" so the damaged tissue in your back heals. Use ice/heat treatments, if possible have a chiropractor work on you for a month, then we could start training your core. Once you feel good, back is strong, we introduce resistance training to major muscle groups. If you want more detail or need clarification on anything, email me - phyed@yahoo.com - Keep in touch!

Hi Ed, good to hear from you. It’s my lower back. I threw my back last week after playing tennis. I’ve been trying to get a regiment started by working on my legs first. Then start on my core muscles.

David, welcome! Do you have back issues? What kind? Do you exercise now?
Looking forward to talking with you,

Hi everyone. I am new to the nutrition and fitness site. My fitness journey begins today Nov 19. So to everyone who can share some advice before I go throw my back out again, please feel free to do so?
