If you’ve got rib cage pain that’s been lingering for months and rest isn’t helping you’re probably frustrated. These two exercises can help you relieve pain in the ribs and chest by targeting the muscles that create the rib pain.*
Rib cage pain is a common complaint. The common, conventional, and outdated medical advice for rib cage pain is to treat it as inflammation or “costochondritis.” But if you’ve already tried resting and resting and resting, you already know that this doesn’t solve pain in the chest and ribs.
By targeting the large muscles that fan across your chest – the pectorals – you can relieve chest pain and increase your overall strength. This is a win-win for your body!
In this video, you’ll discover the deeper reasons for why this approach works and will learn how to do these exericses to fix your rib and sternum pain.
*These exercises will definitely NOT be helpful if you’ve actually cracked or broken a rib!
