Some of the more common rib or chest injuries (which can cause sharp pain and sometimes radiating pain all around the back, sides, and front):
- strain of the muscles between the ribs
- sprain of the ligaments between the ribs
- joint restriction where the back of the rib attaches to the spine
When you have difficulty with your normal daily movements, increased pain while sneezing or coughing, or just difficulty breathing due to rib or chest pain, then you may be experiencing one of these common injuries.
