I think I dislocated a rib
Ok, so I went rock climbing for the first time on Saturday and I think I dislocated one of my ribs. I thought it was a pulled muscle at first, but after a couple days the pain feels very much like a similar pain I get in my feet every now and then. Basically I have to "pop" the joint and the pain is gone. I hadn't really thought about it before but that sounds like a dislocation. I'm not in debilitating pain or anything, but it is limiting. I can take a full breath but it hurts towards the end. If I press on the ribs around the pain it doesn't hurt, but if I get right on top of it, it's pretty painful.
I plan on double checking with my parents tomorrow, but I am pretty sure I am not on their insurance plan anymore and I don't have any insurance of my own.
Now, I suppose what I'm looking for is advice. Is there anything I can do to help this on it's way? Maybe some way to confirm what it is that would be cheap if not free? I saw several things online saying that seeing a chiropractor is the way to go. My only experience with chiropractors comes from that one episode of Penn and Teller's Bullshit! If a chiropractor is the right choice, I can't imagine that would be cheap.
So yeah, I guess any advice you all have would be much appreciated, thanks.
