Rib stress fractures – Part 3; A case study on load & some suggestions

Muscles load up and cause an exponential increase in the tension of the ribs and their muscular influences. Our subject also presents with some thoracic spine restriction (very common in rowers) that operates to place more stress on rib movement by restricting their freedom to move in their spinal joints.

Welcome to the 3rd and final R&D Note in our special series on rib stress fractures in rowing. This part of the series uses a case study from our Performance Innovation work in athlete analysis. It references many experiences at national team and collegiate levels.
