So past few years I've had an on and off knot in my upper back (right side). Hasn't been anything crazy or too annoying, something I would just try and massage out that would go away.
It probably started when I was working and doing excess painting overhead and lifting furniture around. Now that I've been back into the gym it's been pretty constant and to the point it's affecting my workouts. Doing DL's it will really knot up and I feel like I'm pulling to the side etc etc.
So far I've been doing things like foam rolling, the tennis ball (and golf ball) rolling, stretching, I even own a shakti mat, but nothing has really helped. Getting my girlfriend to massage it just seems to bruise it if anything.
So my question is who should I see? A Chiropractor? massage therapist? doctor? Typically I would just head to a chiro but it comes down to money.
Thanks in advance.
