Balanced diet: Agree with dr. Merriman. Key is complete and balanced diet. Supplemental vitamins and minerals as needed under the guidance of your family physician. That said, the most critical thing in rib bruise and/or minor fracture is to keep active, deep breath and simple stretching exercises. Do not tape or wrap or restrict your chest.
