Rib injuries SUCK! I've cracked ribs twice, three the first time and two the second time.
Nothing you do relieves the pain. Standing, sitting, lying, breathing, whatever. It all HURTS. All you can do is take it easy and let them heal.

|baldylox||Caught a death cookie a couple years ago and could breath for almost two minutes pawing aT the snow suffocating. No one stopped. It hurt for about a month when I took a deep breath or bent over or turned my steering wheel. White hot pain like your rib cage is being electrocuted. Xray said 2 fractured ribs.|

Yep, cracked one a couple years ago and it hurt like hell. Took forever to heal. Spent the rest of the season wearing a Lacrosse rib cage protector to provide some protection. It also put some pressure on it, that oddly, made it feel better. If I am doing anything crazy now, I still sport this just in case. It has saved me a time or two on rails.

|roben haq||I cracked a rib in my recent motorcycle accident. It was about a month ago. It pretty much feels fine now and my accident was about a month ago. It still hurts to sneeze of cough. Tell him not to get a cold in-between like I did because it was like HELL coughing and sneezing all the time it still is somewhat sore in the mornings but every day it's gets better. I would say that it is about a full six weeks before a complete recovery which is pretty close for me. I feel his pain!|

|WhistlerBound||I broke my collar bone and cracked a couple of ribs at the same time. I don't think they even strap you up these days. Coughing, laughing, sneezing, even breathing hurts like hell, basically anything that expands or stresses the rib cage. It took weeks for the pain to get to a reasonable level but it still caught me out on occasion, like an unexpected sneeze. Funny thing is that I didn't even notice the ribs until the pain from the collar bone eased. My doctor told me it was something to do with the brain focusing on the biggest source of pain. I could actually live with the pain from the ribs more easily than the collar bone.|

damn i'm going thru the same thing... been almost 2 weeks now and still hurts.
Went to the doc and got some meds but that's all haha. He asked me if I wanted to get an xray, but recommended me not to since the outcome of the treatment is the same
I did try to board w/ it.... and boy, its shaky. I'm gonna rest up so i can hopefully catch the spring season haha.

Damn it. I hate rib injuries. It's not painful enough to stop riding but, if I fall it hurts enough to make me not want to board for the rest of the day.
It's funny that I was able to find snowboarders with the exact same condition as me. Stupid sticky boxes with big drops off the end.
