Hello Jackal, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Injury in sports or self-defense training is quite often experienced because in these activities quite a lot of things are at high risk of causing injury to certain body parts especially if not done in the right way and there is no good security during the activities carried out.
Even though there are no visible signs of injury in the area you are complaining about (such as bruising, swelling, or redness), it is still advisable to check the complaint further to the doctor to determine whether there is a serious injury that occurred to you due to the complaint indeed it can be caused by a broken rib / crack or an injury to the chest muscles.
After ascertaining what condition you are experiencing, then you can also determine what therapy should be given based on these conditions.
Meanwhile, if the complaint is felt to be very disturbing, you can try taking pain relievers such as paracetamol according to the dosage on the package or applying topical pain reliever to the painful area, until there is further advice from the doctor. It is not advisable to massage the painful area until there are other suggestions from the doctor who examined you.
I hope this helps.
