kind of a lengthy question. but basically I’ve had left shoulder issues for years. it was finally diagnosed as a labral tear which the doctor said was minor in nature. but basically i experience tightness in my left upper back not so much my upper trap but more my left rhomboid (and paraspinals i think) i also recently experienced lower back pain.
my lower back is much more developed on my right side than my left. i went to a pt and she said that i had a weak left hamstring weak right glute weak left oblique. it seems like my right quad and hip flexor are tighter on my right side. could this be because of the weak glute on the right side? i have also noticed that i seem to have more thoracic mobility on my left side if thats even possible?
it would make sense though because my right pec and upper trap seem tighter than my left. i also get severe stiffness in my right levitator scapulae muscle. I’ve been doing some thoracic spine mobility exercises on a foam roller to try to balance out each side and some stretching of my right scapular elevators. i also have been to a chiropractor who said i have a minor(very minor) s curve in my spine less than 10degrees he also noted that i have a flat back like my natural spinal curves aren’t as exaggerated as they should be, mainly a flat spot between my shoulder blades, i didn’t think to ask if it was his opinion of whether or not he thought the curve was functional or structural. if it was structural would i be experiencing this much discomfort from such a minor curve?
comments? suggestions? i know this is all over the place i can definitely elaborate if needed
