Pecs and Neck Pain
I have been having pain on my pec area for some time now. I have tried physical therapy while I was going treating a knee problem, but it didn't help. The therapy was pretty much just streching laying on top of the foam roll.
I have been told it's most likely a strain on the chest cartilage. The pain i stronger in the very middle of the chest but expands to the whole chest area. I can mostly feel the pain when flex my pec, or doing a movement of a pushup.
I was wondering if I should give PT a new try, or do acupuncture or see a chiropractor. I am not sure what is more likely to work. I have taken anti-inflammatory which made it get better, but after I stopped, pain came back.
I really appreciate if you have suggestions.
Thanks so much
