How long does it take for broken ribs to heal?

and so

usually about 6wks ,unless you have a cat..i know it sounds odd but a cats purr fascillitates quicker healing due to the ultrasound emitted by purring ...try putting a cat on your ribs ,gently and stroking it ,should quicken up healing by at least a week

From what I know it can take up to three months to heal.

Broken ribs will take anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months to heal completely. However, since the main mineral making up the ribs of our body is calcium, it would behove you to give your body the highest absorbable form of calcium. Otherwise, your body is taking this calcium to heal your broken ribs from the other parts of your skeletal frame. Calcium is a macro mineral that cannot be manufactured by the body. It has to be taken daily from an outside source since these minerals have been depleted from the soil for many decades where our foods are continually harvested from.
To restore good health, you'll need a well balanced diet (80% alkaline foods meaning fruits/vegetables and 20% acidic foods daily), and drinking 8 glasses of water daily. However, I'll go one step further to show you the best and quickest way to get healthy so that your entire system will achieve a balanced pH and not be depleted of the essential minerals that it needs.

The best way to drink 8 glass of water daily is to mix it with Xtreme X2O, a natural and organic, coral calcium with 70 trace minerals, which transforms the pH of the water beverage to 9.9 (highly alkaline)!
You may ask why not just drink plain water? The answer is: When you drink lots of water, all of 8 glasses daily, it does not have the essential minerals (calcium, magnesium with 70 trace minerals) that your body needs to elevate its pH and therefore, alkalize your body as the pH of plain water is rather low and very acidic (pH < 7.0). "Alkalinity" equals Oxygen and Oxygen = Good Health.

If you would like to know what your pH level is, let me know. For more info, check this site:

it took mine six and a half weeks to heal up. it only hurts when you lauff

there is no time limit i broke mine when i was 16 i'm 51 now and at times it still hurts

pepzi_bandit 2
anything up to 6 wks
I broke mine once
terrible pain

sandy k
a very long time mine were broke last year still hurts like crazy

there is no time scale it depends how much rest you can have, mine took about 6 weeks until i was able to cough without it killing me. good luck

I have broken ribs twice and it has taken about 6 weeks to heal each time. There isn't much the medics can do other than give pain killers. If the break is not straight-forward it may take longer to heal depending on the severity.

at least 3 months

Depends on how many and how severe the break was. Absolutely no physical activity until the doctor says its ok.

I think I was in severe pain for 4 weeks and after that, another 2-3 weeks before I was back at work.

What did you do to yourself?
