Default Pec injury

I have two questions. First of all, I seem to have injured my pec doing deadlifts yesterday. Is there a form issue that can cause this? Secondly, do anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen actually help to fix whatever is causing the pain, or do they simply suppress the pain? Probably a stupid question. Thanks ahead of time.

It's possible that it could be a form issue, but it's unlikely due to the fact that the pecs are supposed to be used during deadlift (along with the lats) to pin the bar close to the shins as you're lifting off the ground.

What most likely happened is that your pecs were fatigued or tight for some reason, and the weight may have jerked away from the body as you were rising and it may have strained your pec.

This may help thusly
