A fractured rib is usually a result of a fall or accident. Prolonged coughing and sports with repetitive movement, such as golf, also can cause a rib fracture.
Symptoms include pain when taking a deep breath, pressing on the injured area, or bending or twisting the body.
In most cases, fractured ribs usually heal on their own in one or two months. Pain relievers can make it easier to breathe deeply.
