anyone elses sternum cartilage is messed up?
about 5 years ago, i was sparring with a speedy viet boxer and he landed a wicked chest shot on my sternum. it kind of knocked the breath out of me. after that i felt fine. fastforward couple months, and my chest starts feeling discomfort when i move. the pain/discomfort lessens and plateaus. after that, one day, i was twisting my body and i hear a popping sound and immediately the pain is relieved. but after awhile it comes back. since then its never gone away. i have gotten an x ray of my chest once and the doctors didnt notice it.
i know some weightlifters may encounter this problem.
here are some links i have found regarding this info:
my cartilage pops above my sternum !
I've been popping my sternum cartilage for about 8 yrs now and you are the firs person i've come across that has had such similar experience. I feel like i've been using it as a legitimate stretch to indeed grow into better posture and such. When I flex out with great intent and outward and upwardly stretching my back , I get pops all throughout my back are and then the sternum too with all it's pops, and this feels amazing everytime as long as I follow it through like yoga style. From your experience would you imagine that this could be okay and healthy? i've never established a bump on my chest like you did and it almost seems like it may be very similar to what you refer to as a mild case of it that you still presently experience ?? I want to know more , i'd like to gain 10 thousand perspectives any and all of your attention will be so greatly appreciated :indian:
