Suggest remedy for aching and soreness around the pectorals

Hi, my son is 10 years old and has been complaining of an aching feeling and soreness around his pectorals. This has been happening for a while now and we can not think of anything he may have done to injure himself. He is generally a fit, athletic (he is a gymnast) young boy. Many thanks Alexis

hello
welcome to HCM
your son is gymnast so soreness may be due to severe and strenuous physical activity with faulty techniques or may be due to exercise after a long time.

follow these simple rules
1. do regular and continuous physical activity without breaking days
2. use vitamin c rich fruits which will reduce recent and future sore and aches.
3. in diet, takes pulses and eggs for protein and also take plenty of fluids, will prevent dehydration
4. apply ice at the aching part, will reduce inflammation and also do massage from physiotherapist or experts
5. rest the affected part for a day and apply heat on other day
6. if severe pain, use paracetamol or brufen but no aspirin

thanks for contacting and have a healthy life ahead...
