Carrie Ann Inaba Shares That She Has a Fractured Rib

On Monday, Inaba posted on Instagram stories that she “was building furniture last night and I heard my rib pop.” She added, “Lesson learned: My rib cage is not a vice. And is not stronger than wood.”

She later shared a video to her feed updating fans on the situation after visiting urgent care. Inaba rested on her bed with her dogs around her as she shared that she has a fractured rib. As she said, “So that’s my day. How’s your day going?”

Inaba laughed, which clearly hurt her rib. She went on to explain that “if you have a broken rib or a fractured rib, you still want to take deep breaths despite how uncomfortable it is, because you don’t want to get pneumonia.”


She also advised fans not to “use your chest as a brace to make furniture.” In the caption of her post, Inaba thanked the urgent care, writing, “I appreciate you. Thanks for getting my X-rays done so quickly.”
