A fractured rib is a crack or break in one of the bones of the rib cage. A break in the rib cage cartilage can also be referred to as a rib fracture. The most common cause of a rib fracture is a blow to the chest, often from a car accident or fall. After a rib fracture, breathing is often difficult. It is imperative you seek medical treatment, as a fractured rib could injury the spleen, blood vessels, and even puncture a lung.
Fractured ribs often heal themselves; however, sometimes surgical intervention is necessary, especially if the rib puts internal organs at risk.
