Have you ever been running and suddenly you get that “stitch” in your side – typically low in the rib cage on your side. You feel like you have to grab your side and maybe stop running or slow your pace? What is that “stitch” and how do you prevent it from happening?
The cause of a “side stitch” is well debated, but most research centers around three different hypotheses.
The central theme in these theories seems to be the diaphragm! The diaphragm is a large dome shaped muscle that sits in the bottom of your rib cage and is our primary muscle for inhalation or breathing in.
