IV. Intercostal Detour

Intercostal muscles

My sudden, steep learning curve with TFCC reminded me  of another piece of anatomy, the intercostal  muscles, that  I learned about, also  as a result of a sports-related injury.

Much  like  my ignorance of the TFCC,  I had no idea  what intercostal  muscles were, until about  six years ago when I injured  mine when  I  was paddling  an  outrigger  canoe.  And, like with the TFCC, I  learned how important intercostals  were, and how  I’d  been taking them  for  granted my whole life.  So, what are intercostal muscles?   They are the muscles between and around your ribs.  And once they have been  pulled or strained, you are in a world of hurt.  You  don’t want to sneeze, or cough, or laugh.  And there seems to be no way to cure this situation except by discontinuing exercise involving your “core” for  4 to 6 weeks.  Do that, and  you’ll  recover fully.  Here’s another picture  of intercostal  muscles that many people  are familiar  with, albeit these intercostals are from eine schweine.

    before.
