Middle Back Pain.

After doing a pretty heavy clean(all the way down)... 205 is pretty heavy for me lol.... I came up with probably the worst front squat form i've ever used..

Now it's been about 8 days and I still have this annoying pain in my middle back.
It doesn't seem to be on the spine but right next to it. What do you think that this is? How can I recover from it?

I also found a picture of a back just to show where I feel the pain at.... so you can get a visual image of it...

Re: Middle Back Pain.

Probably either subluxed a rib or a really tight muscle.

Get it checked out by a chiro or PT.

Re: Middle Back Pain.

Hmmm... If it is a really tight muscle how do you suppose I can err.. untighten it?

But you really think i can like sublux a rib from a really low bad form clean?

Re: Middle Back Pain.

Javier, I had a similar injury to yours, though it was sustained in a much different (and more embarrassing) manner. The pain was in almost the exact same spot, and was probably the most pain I've ever been in, and I've fractured ribs and my scaphoid; broken hands, fingers, and toes; and had my tooth put through my upper lip (and stitched back together).

Steven and Chris had some excellent suggestions for me that worked wonders. Check it out: http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=47364 (WFS)

Re: Middle Back Pain.

You can use a wall corner to massage it or get someone to loosen it up.

But if something is out of alignment and you don't know what you're doing you should get a professional to do it

Re: Middle Back Pain.

Well now i've narrowed down the pain to one spot, my muscle was tight im sure and i untightened it but now there is pain directly on my spine. Hurts when I squat and move my spine back and forth, It is kind of hard to keep my back straight.

Even I had been suffered due to back pains at times. And I got rid of it by doing floor and stretch exercises prior to regular workouts, because stretching exercises are the much preferable solutions to back pains.

And Physio will be my next option and as you said that you have already consulted several physiotherapists and its of no use, you may try this http://www.irehab.com (it was referred by a friend). This might be a good choice as well.
