Ive never been much on the message board here for various reasons, but I know there are some people out there that have had a similar promblem to what I have and what might be the best route to cure what ails me.
Basicly what happened was that over a year and a half ago I tore a few of the muscles in my upper back(in the muscle belly) while helping a friend move. It was misdiagnosed by the military dotors as a budging disc for over 6 months(due to the residual pain and local swelling in the neck area), so after a time it has healed with scar tissue that is a large knot in various spots of the muscle. It is painful to lift and causes the muscle to tire prematurely so I can not currently lift right now.
Ive been trying to get in to see the doctors, but being deployed isnt helping much. Ive heard some negative feedback about the cortisone shots in the lump to break it up and that only time will heal such things, along with massage theraphy. I know people cant give absolute answers over the internet, but Im curious to what other peoples experinces have been.
Thanks in advance
