Re: popping sternum

Dear Paula,

When i was younger I had the same issue. There are actual joints where the head of a rib meets the sternum. These joints can give a pupping sound sometimes. My concern is that her rib cage alignment might be off from normal and causing that specific rib head to be stressed. You might want to have her checked by a chiropractor.

This padded knee sleeve offers relief from night-time pain due to pressure sensitive areas over the medial knee. A donut pad over the medial condyle provides greater pressure dispersion.
