In an accident, seat belts can both, save your life and cause injuries. In my seventeen years of practice at Soft Touch Chiropractic in Porter Ranch, CA, I have treated patients whose rib subluxations were caused by their seat belt, when they were in an auto accident.
Because neck and back injuries due to whiplash are most common, rib injuries tend to be ignored or maybe not get so much attention.
Some of the symptoms of rib subluxations are headaches, depression, compromised immune system, difficult breathing, pain while breathing, chest pain, upper back pain and fatigue.
There are other causes of rib subluxations that shouldn't be ignored.
