Ok, so the issue is that my sternum pops. When I yawn or do pullups, pushups and dips. Sometimes I feel nothing after. Other times I'm sore for days in that area. It's sore today, really sore. Not so sore I can move but on a scale of pain from 1-10 I would say its a 4. It bugs me. Any thoughts?

My sternum also cracks something fierce once in a while (maybe once a month). Usually after I have been sitting reading in a less than good posture, then stretch. It is actually fairly painful at the moment but feels much better in a short while. Mine "pops" between the manubrium (the top section) and the gladiolus (main part or body).

I was told this usually joins permanently after puberty but mine must not have. I was also told not to worry about it, so I don't, but mine doesn't hurt either.

If it feels better before long I would assume it is OK.
