RE: Trapezius and Rhomboid injury
Hey bro, I've injured my upper back, real bad, just like you. I kept doing what you are doing take 2 weeks off then go back to the gym and hurt it again. After awhile I had to go with back therapy 4 times a week... It was real bad I lost everything I had and once I got better I couldn't make my self go back to the gym. When I did I made a smart move, I started off very light. Thats very important that you let your body go back to lifting slowly and not jumping right back in where you left off. You will end up like me, almost 8months of no working out and 3 months of back therapy, not fun at all. Right now I am suffering from lower back injury and I am taking my time, even though I was doing so ****ing awesome, I was looking great for the summer, its all ruined. But I am not going to go back and make another mistake. Stretching, cold for 30 minutes, heat for another 30 minutes and stretching again. Don't stretch if it hurts. 1800mg of Ibuprofen a day if that doesn't help after a week ask your doctor for Cyclobenzaprine. It makes you drowsy so I take it before I go to bed and not during the day. It helps to totally relax your whole back muscles. So anyways take you're time bro, stretch, and once you go back to the gym start off slow, if the injured spot starts to feel soar, give it some time to rest, don't go back to the gym the next day. Thats all I have to say man, take care.
