    Today's chiro visit

    So a couple weeks ago I was squatting 560 for a double. On rep two my chest started to cave and the upper back rounded. To fight it you're supposed to push your elbows forward hard. So that's what I did. Had a hell of a strain from it though. It hurt to breathe deep and make certain motions with my right arm.

    At the chiro today I mention this to him. He checks out the tissues in the area and immediately notices that the right upper side of my back, particularly the rhomboid is hard as a rock. Just angry. So after about 5 minutes of him working the tissue out he remarks on an interesting discovery...

    My damn rib was dislocated!!!

    He popped it right back in and I felt lighter. My mood improved too. On the drive to the gym after I felt like a million bucks. Then I smashed a bench PR. Took my previous meet PR from may and hit it for a 5RM.

    I heart my chiro.

    When I was trying to put up rep two on a 560 squat. I forced the elbows forward to arch the back. Apparently it happened then cause the pain was immediately apparent after racking the bar.

    I ripped an intercostal muscle off of a rib. It wasn't sheiko though. It was a freak thing. My first time pulling sumo too which scared me off it for a while. My belt slipped up my torso as I sunk down to the bar. Took in my air and pushed against the belt. When I pulled the weight "pop" and that was that.

    560lbs can do a lot to the body. The rib head is the part if the rib that will dislocate/subluxate. This is the part if the rib that is located near the vertebrae. The spinal nerve is also located in this area and any swelling can lead to spasm & pain.

    Some definitely are. You know if they are when you walk in the door and you go thru the same treatment as every other patient instead of something individualized.

    Damn man, were you in a lot of pain? Your pain tolerance must be high. That "right" chiro can do wonders if you find one, glad it worked out for you.
