An A to Z glossary of disabilities

Those living with costochondritis experience inflammation of the cartilage joining the ribs to the breastbone.

The condition can cause chest pain which can become more uncomfortable when breathing, coughing, sneezing and performing physical activity. It can also become more painful when the person lies down or applies pressure to the area for example…wearing a seatbelt or giving somebody a cuddle.
