Last year I received a muscle strain in my mid-upper back due to overloading with undiagnosed scoliosis. I have gotten to the point where I feel well enough to slowly start lifting and in my opinion it is helping relieve what discomfort I have left. My current program which I do 3x a week:
Deadlift 3x5 (about 40-50% of my max for 3x5)
Seated rowing machine 5x5
Face pulls 3x12
--Ab work here which I haven't decided on--
I know for gaining mass the important principles are progressive overload, big compound lifts, etc. Is there an equivalent of this for rehabilitation programs? Also, does anyone else have any back exercises they'd recommend? (Muscle in question is a left erector, begins at my bottom rib and goes most of the way up my thoracic spine).
