Side Stitches


Research suggests that nearly 1/3 of well trained regular runners suffer the intense, stabbing discomfort under the lower ribcage of exercise related transient abdominal pain (ETAP)  more commonly known as a side stitch.

 Although uncertain, it is commonly believed that ETAP results from the stretching of, and related spasming of ligaments that run from the diaphragm to the internal organs, notably the liver.

Various methods are suggested to alleviate attacks. The more successful include

  • Alternate breathing. If the side stitch occurs on your right side (more common than the left), try to exhale as your left foot strikes the ground. If the stitch occurs on your left side, exhale as your right foot strikes. Continue to alternate breathe until the pain subsides.

  • If alternate breathing fails, try slow, deep "belly breathing". Slowly inhale and exhale deeply allowing your abdomen to move in and out as much as possible with each breath.

  •  Another method of treatment is to raise the arm on the side of the stitch and bend the torso over at the waist away from the stitch thereby stretching the spasming diaphragm side.

  • An additional remedy is to dig your fist under your ribcage and bend your torso over to nearly 90°. This will stretch the diaphragm and hopefully alleviate the spasm.
