In many cases, costochondritis goes away on its own. Mild cases of costochondritis may disappear after a few days. Chronic cases can last for weeks or more, but most cases don't last any longer than a year. To lower your chance of persistent and chronic costochondritis, carry and lift heavy loads properly.How do you treat costochondritis?
Improve your posture to reduce the strain on your chest. Sitting or standing with a hunched posture is likely to aggravate your costochondritis and increase your discomfort. Practice sitting, standing, and walking with a book balanced on your head. Concentrate on opening your chest and letting your shoulders roll back.
