In brief: Posterior rib "out"

1) posterior rib "out".
I can't really explain it anatomically, but the ribs can "go out" and a chiropractic adjustment can help tremendously. Give it one or two tries. 2) trigger point in one of the thoracic paraspinal muscles. Can be helped with massage (ischemic compression) and injections into the painful area of the muscle.
