For the last couple of months, every so often the right side of my upper back would flare up. Now it’s pretty consistent. My girlfriend said my right spinal erector is significantly shorter than my left one, and is inflamed.
Some basic information about me:
-205 Pounds, recently dieted down from 225
-Been working six day weeks between meat, and produce department in a grocery store. It’s fairly physical
-I lift and do cardio 4 days a week
I spoke to one of the bigger guys in my gym today, and he suggested rolling my back on a yoga ball. I’ll be doing this for a while to see if it helps. Tomorrow I will be trying to get an appointment with a doctor for next week Monday
-Training upper back feels fine in the gym, hurts afterwords
-bench pressing hurts immediately when above 185 pounds
-Haven’t tried squatting anything heavy, not going to either.
-Training arms has not bothered it
-I do not deadlift regularly
I’m 99% sure it’s a repetitive strain injury.
Has anyone experienced something like this? What helped? Everywhere else online is trying to make me buy an ebook.
