Hello, Chacha Febriantika, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The chest cavity functions to maintain internal organs (such as the heart, lungs, blood vessels). The structures that surround the chest cavity are the ribs, muscles, joints, and connective tissue. Chest pain after a blunt injury (eg a kick) to the chest can be caused by several possibilities:
1. Injury to the soft tissue in the chest, such as: bruises (because there are injured blood vessels so that blood is out of the blood vessels), strains / tears in the chest muscle fibers, or there is a release of ribs from the breastbone.
2. Injury to the bones, such as fractures / broken ribs
3. Injury to internal organs, such as inflammation of the lining of the lung lining due to a broken rib
To ascertain the cause, it is necessary to do a physical examination and supporting examinations such as x-rays. The doctor will give therapy according to the cause and severity.
You can take paracetamol to relieve pain, compress the painful part, and rest the painful part (don't move much and don't work first). However, if the pain is unbearable, causing shortness and pain when breathing, you should immediately see a doctor to be given the appropriate therapy.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
