I stretched my chest today with my arms outstretched horizontally and I heard a cracking or popping kind of noise. the kind you hear when you crack your knuckles. The only thing is is that it came directly from the center of the chest where the sternum is located (in between my pecs). I have had chest pain from getting hit in that area for about 2 weeks now and it has gotten better. I don't recall ever hearing this sound from the chest area.
Just wondering if you guys are willing to try the same thing i did so I can find out if this is normal.
What to do:
1 Sit or stand with a straight back
2 slowly start arching your back a little bit towards the back and outstretch your arms so that you feel a stretch in the inner chest area.
3 Listen for a cracking sound that's origin is from the inner chest area
4 Leave your truthful response if you did or did not hear a cracking/popping sound.
Thanks for your replies. I just want to figure out if my chest might be slightly fractured.
