Basically just ice it, soak in warm water.. soaking in water with epison salt works.. take your daily multivitamin.
But waiting it out also works, depends on how much it's bothering you.
keep weight off it, maybe just go to class for technique only. No rolling.
If your going to decide to roll keep peoples off of s moutn and knee on the belly. It might actualy help your game because you will be in dire need to keep them off your chest. make sure to tell your sparing partners where you are injured.
Nothing is going to make it heal faster than resting.
Injured ribs suck very badly and I am hardheaded so i only took a week off. They take forever to heal but i found lots of ibupfrin ice and hot baths helps. Icy hot helped a little to.
I recently missed time due to badly bruised ribs on my right side. The best advice is to take some time off. The more you train with them, the longer it takes to fully heal.
I'm currently training with a broken rib, keeping rolling to a minimum - but i'm an idiot
I'd just go crazy if I took the time off all together.
how do you know if you have bruised ribs? My torso has been hurting like hell and i dont know what it is. It mostly hurts when Im getting off the ground, like when your doing a situp, or when someone has the mount or sidemount on me. There are no physical signs of bruising though. No purple marks or anything like that. Oh yeah, it hurts when I sneeze too.
rest..that's the best cure, I cracked a rib once and yeah it's sucks to sneeze, laugh, and get up in the morning to pee. rest.
Personally, I found out I had rib bone bruising because the doctor told me so. There were no indications of bruising on the skin. If you're having pains in your torso, you should go see a doctor.
