Torn Lats by Deadlift

Hi,

did anyone here had similar injury? I partially tear latissimus by deadlift. The shit is it was not by trying new pr, but playing with 70% of PR. According to doctor the surgery is not necessary, I just have to rest and take pills. Any advice how to begin after the break slowly to get back to form and what kind of supplements to take? Thanks

Done it a few different times usually right where lats connect into armpit
Area where you can develop adhesions, start rolling that area out to break up any .even add some compression wraps like Donnie talks about do what you can to get blood in the area find the angle on some lat work that’s tolerable heals quick don’t stress
