Costochondritis - What is it for

​Costochondritis is a chest wall condition caused by inflammation of the joints between the bony ribs and the cartilages. These joints help in chest wall expansion during breathing, and thus can cause aching chest pain during exercise, and can be sometimes mistaken as a heart attack.
