Muscle Pull And Chest Pains

There are so many medical conditions ranging from an ordinary benign muscle pull to serious cardiac complication ultimately leading to cardiac arrest. Chest pain due to muscle pull is normally a result of overload during physical exercise.

Pulled chest muscle symptoms will either refer to a muscular injury or terrible tendon injury. There can be variety of reasons for pulled muscle in chest. The primary reasons for pulled chest muscle are that it has been strained during a workout.

While doing physical exercise muscle will incur micro tears in the muscle fibers. This will result in varying degrees of tenderness, pain, stiffness and possibly swelling. Any quick sudden movement during workout causes a muscle to extend beyond its reach and tear. The problems starts when you continue to train on injured muscle, ignoring any pulled chest muscle symptoms in the tendon take place often at the musculotendinous junction. This is where the biceps, deltoids and pectoral tendons meet up. Any injury to musculotendinous junction will produce symptoms such as acute pain on active movement and pain and restriction on passive movements.

In most cases, you will know within a day if you have suffered a pulled chest muscle. Although the pain may not trigger immediately, you will experienced an acute pain upon any attempt of physical movement or strain within the chest area. A pulled chest muscle can be put into different levels of severity.
