Medical Offices of Manhattan’s own Dr Jyoti Kini was recently quoted in an article from PageSix.com. Here’s her quote:
“We have several muscles, which help the ribs move and help us breathe, namely internal intercostal muscles, external intercostal muscles, subcostalis muscle and the transverse thoracis muscle,” Jyoti Kini MD, primary care doctor at Medical Offices of Manhattan tells Page Six. “These muscles contract during sneezing and even coughing.

If caused by sneezing anti-histamines might be helpful.”
