    i have already seen a doctor and chiropractor. but my ribs from same side have been dislocated and i cannot think of a reason. these injuries happened like when im currently playing badminton competitive but i also ride my longboard which i fall sometimes. so what i want to know is it possible to have my ribs dislocated by playing badminton and how i can prevent this.

    once my right lower rib felt dislocated(most likely due to badminton). I could feel it move back and forth when i took certain positions.
    it took some time but it recovered by itself...i just kept the rib at position A and soon it became impossible to move to position B again.

    Go again. its important to look at these things. while there are doctors on the forum, online help doesn't replace a doctor or a specialist.

    Dislocating ribs seems very hard. maybe a fall could do it. you seem to have some of those.

    It is possible that badminton may cause your ribs to dislocate. I ever dislocate my ribs due to golf and that was because I was going to the driving range to hit around 300 balls for 4 days in a row ! As I was still a beginner, alot of time, my golf club hit the ground which causes huge vibration and shock.

    Since you have looked for a chiro, I assume that you are on your road to recovery.
