Thank you, ***** *****
This Lady showed me the Rib in question two evenings ago ..
It is a Front Rib, and, seemingly, the uppermost one,on her right hand side.
She offered to pop it out herself as a demonstration, but I declined this offer!
I can't specify any particular situations / actions which might trigger the problem, but this Lady works under a lot of stress ..
One occasion was at a recent Family Christening ..
She is currently undergoing a bad patch with her partner (my son) ..
So I wonder whether stress might be to blame for an inherent weakness surfacing?
I don't know whether this Lady is 'double-jointed' ..
I hope that the information I have given you is sufficient for you to advise regarding the situation which is, quite naturally, making her feel vulnerable, and less able to conduct her job, within which she is a Manager ..
I look forward to your reply ..
I am not aware of any such occurrence ..
I have known this Lady for around 7 years, but cannot offer an opinion regarding her life before this time, which I understand to have been problematical ...
Should I ask her whether any such trauma has ever taken place?
Thank you very much, Doctor ..
The young Lady in question is completely unaware that I have taken these steps on her behalf ..
I will inform her of your opinion within the next couple of days.
Would it be possible for our conversation to be placed with me as an Email, so that I can forward / print out?
I'm also wondering whether wearing a 'support vest' might help
in keeping the offending Rib in place, just for now?
Many, many Thanks!
I will do my best to pass your advice to the Lady in question.
