Why You Need This Chest Brace for Broken, Cracked or Dislocated Ribs

A fractured, bruised, or sprained rib can usually be treated conservatively without any splinting, surgery, etc. However, the road to fractured rib recovery can be a difficult, painful one. Many people find rib wraps for cracked ribs, like these, to be quite helpful thanks to the support and pain relief they provide to the surrounding muscles. In addition, wearing a cracked rib wrap can help reduce inflammation and encourage blood flow to the site in the interest of quick healing.

How can you tell if you have a broken rib?

The 12 pairs of rib bones, as well as with the breastbone, cartilage, ligaments, and muscles that support them, form your rib cage. Some of these muscles are used for breathing.

After a rib injury, breathing can be difficult and very painful as the muscles attached to your ribcage pull on your ribs with every breath.

In addition, fractured, cracked, or dislocated ribs often cause pain (especially with movement of your ribcage), muscle spasms, crunching/grinding sounds when touching or moving the injury site, or visible deformity—depending upon the type and severity of your injury.  

Am I at risk?

  • The most common cause of a fractured rib is a trauma or direct blow to your chest, usually resulting from a car accident or a bad fall.

  • Simply coughing hard can cause chest and abdominal muscle strain, sometimes enough to break a rib.

  • Those with weaker bones due to advanced age, osteoporosis, cancer, etc. are at higher risk of withstanding a cracked rib.

4 Reasons Why You'll Love This Compression Rib Belt

Wondering what sets this rib binder treatments strap apart from others? Following we detail why this rib belt is the best rib compression garment on the market today.

  1. Elastic Rib Belt Provides Targeted Compression and Support

    This wrap for cracked rib treatment is constructed of two three-inch wide elastic panels. These elastic panels are supportive yet flexible, so they are comfortable against your skin and allow for a high degree of movement. The material of this rib fracture brace is free of latex.

  2. Ultra Lightweight and Low-Profile Design for Optimal Comfort and Breathability

    Thanks to its elastic construction, this support for treatment of fractured rib and other injuries in this area is lightweight and fits smoothly against your skin. Therefore, the broken rib support belt fits easily beneath your clothes.

  3. Available in 3 Styles, Fitting a Wide Range of Chest Circumferences

    Fit is very important when it comes to wearing a rib belt for a broken rib. If your rib belt for fractured ribs fits too tightly and your lungs cannot fully expand, this could lead to serious complications, such as an infection or pneumonia.

    For this reason, BraceAbility offers this wrap for broken rib treatment in a straight design geared towards men, as well as a contoured version for women’s rib fractures. A plus size version that works for fractured rib care in both men and women is also available.

    Wondering if you are overweight or obese? Use our easy BMI calculator to find out. Aside from this rib brace, BraceAbility has many other plus size supports for larger people to help with knee, back and abdominal pain.

  4. Entire Brace Is Fastener Compatible

    In comparison to ACE bandage wrap for fractured ribs or broken rib vests, you can easily apply and adjust the fit of this rib treatment belt because the entire support is fastener compatible. Simply attach the fasteners anywhere on the brace for customized support and compression.

    As an added bonus, our fastener is 10 times stronger than the standard, retail-grade fasteners you’ll find at Walgreens, Walmart, Target, or other online retailers. Medical-grade fastener is meant to open and close at least 900 times, unlike retail-grade fastener, which is only meant to open and close 90 times.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!! I was initially using an Ace Bandage when I had mistakenly thought I just bruised my rib, needless to say, that wasn't working out at all. How would I know that was going to be a major fail - this is the first time I've ever had a broken rib, didn't realize it was actually broken until a few days later when I felt it move out of place. I also appreciate that you've provided a brace that is contoured specifically for women. Despite being "top heavy" ... there is no rolling up or slippage with this brace. You weren't kidding at all about the velcro grip!! Best of all ... the pain isn't nowhere near as sever as it had been. It feels as though the healing process has already began. 10 thumbs up (if I had them lol) ... I *HIGHLY* recommend this product for anyone that needs it!! Thank you again for this!!

Just what I needed

I received my rib brace and it is great. This is my 3rd broken rib and I have always had to be wrapped up with an ace bandage. This is so much more comfortable. The price was beyond reasonable. Their customer service was on it, answered my email almost immediately. Thank you Tara.

This product is not what it looks like.

I bought 2 of these at it very clearly, to me, looks like this brace is part of a shirt and can adjust it from there. Making me think it would stay on easier and be more comfortable. I orded 2 as i have a dislocated rib and have had it for 2 weeks now... i put a slight rush on them paying extra. I got them and put 1 of them on... it doesn't stay where I need it to it either crawls up into my armpits and folds or falls and constantaly needs readjusting. Very uncomfortable. What makes it worse for me is i paid extra to have it delivered faster as im in a lot of pain and hate taking pain killers. Then... to make matters worse in order to return it, im instructed to reuse the old bag, have to pay for a shipping label and then in the website it says that if it 'looks' like it was worn more than just being tried on they wont refund. So i feel like no matter what I paid for something I didn't recieve.... out of fear I am not going to return the product because no matter what ill be out 25$ and i feel if i mail it back ill be out 65$ so no matter what i feel like i lose and still in pain!!! I am very frustrated, disapointed and in pain.


Helps a lot

I received my brace very quickly. I like the contour cut to accomodate a woman's bustline. The only recommendation I would make is to have adjustable straps like a bra to help hold the brace up under the ******* from sliding down. I have a large bust and the weight of the ******* push the brace down so I need to occasionally pull it back up . I don't think this is a problem for small busted women though. The support , compression and comfort are great in reducing my pain overall despite having to reposition it.
