Pulled chest muscle

I have a pulled chest muscle just under the right side of my rib cage.  Is there anything that I can do to lessen the pain or help increase the the speed of recovery?

Hi there!

You could try resting the region and avoiding extreme movements around the shoulder for a few days. Ice-packs/ warm compresses and OTC NSAIDS may be helpful in providing relief.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
