I can find a lot of links on what it is, how to diagnose, how to treat - but I cannot find anything on how to prevent!
As far as I'm concerned, that is the biggest thing preventing me from making the gains I so desperately desire.

What Causes Slipped Rib Syndrome?
Slipped rib syndrome generally arises from a trauma to the rib cage or from heavy exertion involving the chest wall. Many patients recall a specific incident that initiated the condition, while others feel that it “just came out of nowhere” or after waking up from a nap.
Slipped rib syndrome results from ligamentous injury or trauma to the costal (rib) cartilage of (usually) the 8th, 9th, or 10th rib. When the ligaments are stretched or ruptured, they allow the cartilage tip of the rib to slip upward and impinge on the intercostal nerve. Children are particularly vulnerable to slipped rib syndrome, as their ligaments have not fully matured and are naturally “loose.”The beatings will continue until morale improves.
