Chest may have a torn muscle, painful when moved. Need a physio?

Hello I m a 32 year old male and for quite sometime now I have had a problem in the right side of chest . I went to my GP and had chest x- ray , blood tests and urine sample which all came back clear . It just won t go away though I m thinking its a badly torn muscle, because when I sneeze it really pulls and is really quite painful ! I m an electrician and can work ok , certain movements can be painful though . Getting comfortable in bed at night can also be difficult . I would say I have had this problem 6 months maybe more . Do you think I need physio ? Many thanks Marc

Dear Marc,

Thanks for ypur query. I agree that your issue sounds muskuloskeletal in origin, likely a persistent muscle strain. In an integral fashion, the best specialist to take a look would be a Sports and Rehabilitation specialist, since they can prescribe specific rehabilitation maneuvers but also determine if additional medication, including local steroid injections, might be benefitial.

Hope this helps, wish you the best health, blessings
