Chest muscle pull

I pulled a muscle on the side of my chest  just under my right  arm pit.  It is very sore  and painful when i take a deep breath.  It started to hurt 18 hours after my tennis match. Is that my Latissimus Dorsi Muscle or my Serratus Anterior.
Should i  ice it or  apply heat?  How long  till i can  get  back on the court?  Is 4x advil twice a day  adequate?  Thanks

Hi there!

It could be either. If it is swollen or appears to be inflammed you may try ice-packs or else heat-pads work best for minor muscle injuries. Yes, twice a day advil should be fine; in addition you may try resting the region. It may be 3-10 days before you notice improvement. If the pain/ discomfort aggravates or does not seem to get better, you may consider seeing a doctor.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
