I was playing Hockey on sunday and fell against the boards. Now my left chest is hurting I'm not sure if its a bruised rib or the peck muscle.There is some pain when I breath. But most of the pain is when I move certain ways or lay down. What treatment would be best ice or heat.Any advice is appreactiated thank you.
