    Knot from hell

    Knot in my upper right back below the trap. Feels like a rope.

    Its been 5 days of constant 2-3/10 pain and the last 2 nights itís woken me up several times. Couldnít sleep in a bed last night. Had to sleep on The couch.

    Nothing I can remember that set it off. Just came on one legs day.

    Iím on ibuprofen 800mg 2x day which is awful because Iím running drol. Pain was so bothersome last night a had 2 cups of wine and a Xanax. Hoping my liver doesnít turn into styrofoam.

    I am:
    foam rolling multiple times a day
    using a lax ball
    stretching
    doing high reps of light weight cable rows daily
    cardio
    hot baths



    its really bothersome when Iím just sitting or lying down. When Iím active itís not so bad.

    Any tips? Suggestions? At this point Iíd try anything.

    Thank you!

    Cupping worked for me. Know anyone who does it?

    Have someone rub the **** out of it with a spoon... Till it hurts. And it gets red like someone beat your ass.

    If so... rotating through cupping, deep massage and hot towels/stones worked it out after a few passes.

    Had success on my rhomboids by my shoulder blade and a real bad one in my calf.

    Yes, but deep tissue is really what we’re after, right?

    In my town there is a yoga teacher you does massage with her feet. I guess she walks if your back or whatever. I’ll see about going to her. I like be over an hour away from a city and that’s if you pay $30 round trip for the toll road. Otherwise it’s 1:40min.

    I was assuming though that the foam rolling and lax ball are doing the same work as a masseuse would do.

    We have a woman that does "trigger point" massages for us. She finds the knots and it hurts like hell, but as soon as it releases, we feel better.

    There are trigger point shots also, check them out. Seems like voodoo but they actually help.

    Infraspinatus or if it's lower, the serratus. That serratus isn't a huge muscle but can put you on your knees. Benching sometimes with a hard arch can give me fits like that.

    I like Aleve (Naproxen) for this stuff. double the dose for 3 days. I'd avoid those lower cable rows and try to see if hanging from your arms with wrist straps helps loosen it up. Try grabbing the corner of the wall and stretching it out. Rolling it out with a ball will help but nothing like having the wife put an elbow in there with a block of wood in your mouth. A chiropractor may be able to get her loose for ya.

    Good luck Jin. This is a PITA but it's no real injury so work around it.

    Yep. I have definitely found said trigger point and the pain from lying on a lax ball is nearly unbearable.

    Honestly (if I could reach) I feel like stabbing it over and over with a 25g would bring some relief at this point.

    Deep tissue, sports massage or neuromuscular therapy, those that specialize in that can get the job done. I'm certified in all three but I don't massage anymore because Male massage therapists get screwed in the business.
