Feels lump in throat, difficulty in swallowing. Solution for pain?

My 17 yr old son was lifting weights last week and having to max out for his weight lifting class. Since then he feels like he has a lump in his throat and difficult swallowing . He can swallow food and liquids fine its just swallowing in general that is painful. We have tried PPI s without much improvement. The more he thinks about it the worse it is. He feels like he has to turn his head to the side to be ale to swallow. Could he have strained something in his neck and what can he do to resolve this issue?
