I’ve bruised my ribs, because I used a rib protector, that was too soft. Came back to track a week later, and went out with a proper stiff rib protector (but a bit too large). My ribs however have gotten much worse, and now I have symptoms similar to what Nick Weil has described. So the question is: was my 2nd rib protector also a wrong one, or is it that ribs will get in bad shape (regardless of the protector) until they fully heal?
