Why You Might Need a Male Rib Binder
Individuals most often need a rib binder in the case of a bruised, fractured, or broken rib cage, causing a great deal of pain to the patient. The compression feature of this rib binder forces the ribs to stay in position to prevent further injury while also promoting healing by boosting blood circulation. The chest binder for men also allows one to cough easier with less pain after fracturing a rib, and prevents further injury from coughing and other strenuous activities to the rib cage. If untreated, a rib fracture can lead to serious life threatening conditions such as a punctured lung, flail chests, and more, all making it extremely difficult to breathe.
Features of the Rib Belt for Men
The front and sides of the elastic rib belt are not elastic in order to provide a more rigid support to the patient. The back of the rib binder is elastic in order to provide mobility to the patient while wearing the chest support. The large Velcro strap on the rib binder allows the patient to adjust the rib support to their best fit and ideal comfort. The cotton satin and terry cloth material of the rib belt for men is designed to make recovery of injured, strained or fractured ribs as comfortable as possible. The chest support is 6 inches in height, white, and a universal size fitting chest circumferences ranging from 34”-60”. The elastic adjustability feature of this binder makes it a great fit for almost anyone.
Male Rib Brace for Bruised Rib Treatment
This rib belt is great for fractured rib care, but although it promotes comfort and support it is important to understand that fractured rib treatment will still leave some pain in the ribs until it’s fully healed. Multiple rib fractures need to be checked out by a doctor since this could result in a punctured lung or flail chest that makes it extremely difficult to breath. A more simple rib fracture from coughing is easier to support and recover by a rib binder such as this one.
