Slipping Rib Syndrome - Causes and Risk Factors

There is currently no definitive cause for slipping rib syndrome (SRS). However, in most cases, issues such as weakness in chest muscles or ligaments are usually evident. Those afflicted with SRS would often present with increased movement of the lower ribs.

Other possible risk factors of SRS include chest wall anomalies since birth, or injury to the cartilage of the ribs.
