In brief: Pectus excavatum

Pectus excavatum can be surgically repaired, but surgery is usually reserved for people who have moderate to severe signs and symptoms.
People who have mild signs and symptoms may be helped by physical therapy. Certain exercises can improve posture and increase the degree to which the chest can expand. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/pectus-excavatum/basics/treatment/con-20028599
