A subluxation is a slight dislocation or dislocation of the bone. Your ribs usually move smoothly, but subluxation can lead to joint blockage, causing pain and almost no breathing. Surrounding muscles may spasm and pain may be exacerbated by exercise or even breathing. Rib subluxation can also cause costal chondritis, a chest pain. Back squatting can lead to subluxation of one or more ribs.
Like other weightlifting methods, crouching can cause rib subluxation. (Picture: comstock/comstock/getty images) Rib anatomy: Of the 12 ribs, 10 are fixed, and 2 on each side of the bottom are not fixed in front. They are called floating ribs. Each rib is connected to the back vertebrae or joints; these connections are stabilized by muscles and ligaments. There are nerves between each rib. Subluxation can cause stress or irritation to these structures. The causes of subluxation < h3> < p > Even if coughing, sneezing or sleeping in the wrong place, subluxation of ribs may occur. Any sudden sharp pull of the arm will lead to subluxation of the ribs. Dr. Steven Estner, a chiropractor in Rhode Island, said lifting weights can lead to subluxation if you are overweight or breathe abnormally during weightlifting.

The chiropractor uses a lifting table and a hand-held tool, such as an activator or other form of lever, to eject the ribs back to their original position. Preventing subluxation of the ribs is usually a matter of keeping back muscles strong and using good posture, Dr. Estner said. Head forward posture increases the risk of subluxation of the ribs. If you think your ribs are subluxated, consult a medical professional.
