update on pec injury
I strained my pec 2 weeks ago and used ice ice ice and motrin, 800mg three times a day. Swelling went down, soreness is almost gone, only hurts when i press on it and even then not bad pain. have not benched since then. Question is-now i have an indentation at the injury site, does that mean it was partially torn or what? any ideas on what the indentation is?

Did you go to the Doctor??

Did not go to Dr. it is at a point where it does not bother me in my everyday life, just cant bench.

sounds like a partial tear to me. go to an ortho and get an mri

There was no visible bruising and pain did not last more than about 3 days, i was icing it all the time and it really feels good right now, just wondering about the identation. I am still not benching but can do most other exercises. this gives me more time to work my back, damn it. hate back work. ha

keep me posted. no bruising is a good sign. sounds like it may be a small grade 1 tear or grade 2 at the worst. need an mri to be certain if there is a tear at all
