I was doing SDLHP's (@ 70#)this morning, and felt a bit of a pop on my back right between the shoulder blades. I think it was the fact that I was speeding a bit...alot actually.

Anyhoo, it hurts like hell, but the pain comes and goes, mostly when I move. Once I get into any position and stay still, the pain goes away, for a while.
Can anyone give me some advice on helping the pain, PLEASE!

Between the shoulder blades - is it your spine? If it hurts so much I would say get to a doctor quickly. A spinal injury, if that's what it is, should definitely be taken seriously. Have someone else drive you to the doctor if it is too bad.

looks like ya prolly either pulled a muscle, or maybe had a bit of acute sublux of yur vertebrae, is the pain local or does it radiate to other places?

I have done something like this once or twice a year for the last, oh, 30 years.

Mine especially hurts when I breathe or move when acute.

Not sure what it is but mine gradually goes away in a week or so

Hi guys,

Thanks for your replys. Luckily, it's not my spine, it's just a pulled muscle. Nothing a little Myoflex couldn't numb out.
the only thing is that I've gotten somewhat stiff, and I can lean to my left, but have trouble leaning to my right.
Should I slowly keep stretching?

I really gotta be more aware of my form.

Well, that's good news. A spinal injury is about the last thing I would ever want.

important thing is to keep the area moving and keep blood flowing, this will help it recover faster then stretchin along ( whihc will actually agrevate it)
