Broken Rib


The most common complication of broken ribs is not being able to take a deep breath because it hurts. If you don’t breathe deeply enough, mucous and moisture can build up in the lungs and lead to an infection such as pneumonia.

Displaced rib fractures can damage other tissues or organs and sometimes lead to collapsed lungs (pneumothorax) or internal bleeding.
