UPPER/MID BACK PAIN
That nagging, irritating pain right next to your shoulder blade that you can never seem to find or get rid of? That wicked thing? Yea. We know. As forever as it may seem, it's not true. You don't have to live with this aggravating pain. There are answers.
First of all let's discuss why we have so much pain and discomfort in our back side. It is.....drum roll..........coming from the front, (more often than not). We are bent over at our desk jobs, our factory jobs and our teaching jobs. This constant bending ends up shortening the muscles that take us there. Once this happens the back muscles spring into action to pull us back. The problem is we spend so much time in a near 'fetal' position that our backs just cannot compensate. They tighten up because of the incredible counter-strain place upon them by the "sitting" muscles, and spasm to protect themselves. But really, they are selfish, they are protecting you from yourself. Protecting themselves from your lack of knowledge.
# 1 ON OUR PAIN LIST
A burning, painful area between our shoulder blades is possibly the most common complaint we have seen in our careers. This problem is ancient and increasing because of modern technologies. Look around and you will see a large part of our population with their faces folded to the floor as they gaze into their cell phones and computer screens. It is not unusual to see a young person as well as the elderly with a rounded shoulder posture.
