The pain you’re feeling just under the ribs along the abdomen is likely caused by muscle strain. Most of the time, abdominal strains occur within the rectus abdominis muscles, the pair of muscles that run along the anterior wall of your abdomen. If you feel pain under your ribs, Ice the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, several times throughout the day. Icing draws blood away from the injury site, lessens inflammation and alleviates pain. You may also want to wrap the abdominals to further minimize inflammation. Contact a doctor or sports physician to take a look at the injury and determine the best plan for treatment.
