    Angry Torn pec

    I tore my pec benchpressing. Any advice, other than layoff the chest work? How long will this take to heal?

    Thanks

    what kind of a tear?

    tore from the bone?

    need surgical repair?

    partial tear?

    Did you get an MRI? Don't just assume it is torn until the MRI says so.

    P-funk,

    What if I had sharp pain in the middle of my pec while bench pressing two months ago and it still hasn't healed? Do you think I partially tore it? It didn't swell up that much. I haven't done any workouts in 2 months because of a rotator cuff injury.

    could be a partial tear. could be a strain. could be a pull.


    go get an MRI and see a specialist.

    I guess I don't know if it was a tear or a pull. It made a ripping sound. Didn't swell much. The pain is right in the center of my pec muscle, just about 3" above my nipple and out towards my armpit. I don't think I injured my shoulder joint at all. It's been about a month and still very weak - I wouldn't be able to bench more then about 50% of what I could before without it hurting.

    what does it look like when you flex your chest...are both pecs symmetrical?

    I would assume its a partial tear (strain).....if it didnt swell or bruise, which should heal on its own....but, like P said...MRI is the only way to really know.

    you said it made a ripping sound......are you sure?...that just doesnt sound right.
    My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right.

    When one door closes another door opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the ones which open for us.

    ripping sound

    definitely a ripping sound. You can not see any deformation, however.

    although it did turn a little black and blue at first - that's gone now - you can't see the damage
