Friday Q&A: Costochondritis

By Ninazolotow @Yoga4HealthyAge
Friday Q&A;: Costochondritis Q: How can yoga help people that have costochondritis? I have it now and then and I can't do some yoga poses that open the chest as they trigger the pain. I had it for the first time 3 years ago and it never really went away, keeps coming back.
A: Costochondritis (CC) is a fairly common cause of chest wall pain in adults in the US and around the world. According to the Mayo Clinic website: 
“Costochondritis (kos-toe-KHON-dri-tis) is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum) — a junction known as the costosternal joint. Pain caused by costochondritis may mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions.”
