Your chest pain could be a result of strained or tight chest muscles.
Some of the muscles around the chest include the intercostals, pectoralis major, pectoralis minor, and serratus anterior, etc. These muscles help in stabilizing your
upper body and help you breathe by enhancing chest movements.
A strain on either of these muscles can cause chest pain and difficulty breathing. This happens when a muscle stretches, pulls, or tightens excessively.
This as a result restricts normal chest expansion due to muscle tension. Chest Pain can start either suddenly, or it can begin gradually from repetitive motions.
The number one cause of chest muscle tightness is a stiff upper back. This upper back stiffness is often a consequence of slouching.
During slouching, the forces of gravity pull your neck and shoulders downwards hence inhibiting proper chest expansion. The longer you sit, the less your body is able
to fight gravity.
Activities that lead one to slouch.
