Feeling pain in your ribs can be scary. After all, the ribs protect your heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, and other vital organs. If you're having pain under the right side of the rib cage, you might think that something is wrong with your heart or spleen. Pain in the left side of the right cage can indicate problems with your liver, right? Not really. Rib pain alone is rarely due to heart, lung, or liver problems.


Wondering what exercises to do with joint pain? You're probably thinking about stretching and low-impact activities like swimming or yoga. These activities are generally safe, but you can do much more than that. It all comes down to your symptoms and what's causing them in the first place. If you have an injury, it's important to give your body enough time to recover. In this case, low-impact workouts are your best bet. However, if you have joint pain because of arthritis or prolonged sitting, you can tweak your training routine based on how you're feeling.
