I bet that if you sit at a desk for the majority of your day you’ve had at least one episode of pain between your shoulder blades. It typically starts as a dull ache but by the end of your day it’s so nagging you can’t move your head or your arm without aggravating it more. Eventually it feels like somebody is sticking you with a hot poker right between your shoulder blade. I don’t know about you but when I’ve felt this pain it was so bad that I thought “If I get that corner on the spot I could dig it out myself.” Then I spent an embarrassingly long time trying digging the corner of the wall into the painful spot between my shoulder blade and my spine. And even after bruising myself the pain was still there. It hurt when I let my arm hang by my but it hurt if I held my arm up too high. When I turned my next a certain way and if I didn't sit exactly right I would feel that searing pain between my shoulder blade and my spine. And of course it was on the right side since I’m right handed and I had to move my right arm all day.
When I was a massage therapist I used to see people for this type of pain all the time. I had clients that would come in monthly and sometimes weekly because they held all their stress in their shoulders. Over the years I have found several ways to help clients stop shoulder blade pain to help them get back to working and their favorite activities.
