In brief: Rib pain

There are several potential causes of pain in this location.
The most common causes are probably strain of the muscles between the ribs or of the cartilage joints connecting the ribs to the sternum. This can be caused, typically, by heavy lifting or other vigorous physical activity. Most of the time, if this is all that is going on, it will respond to standard anti inflammatory medications within
