Q & A
By Olga from Denver co on May 10, 2014
These protectors, should they be woren if you have a broken rib??

Typically, rib protectors are worn to prevent rib injuries. If you have a broken bone, you should consult a physician to see if it is safe to play and if so, what protection they would recommend.
