CleverSky2 daysJust waited it out. Application of heat felt good, but I don't know if it helped. No idea why it happened, though two days earlier I did do a bunch of hauling around of wood (Mom's yard cleanup).details

Siggi2 daysvermutlich durch die ungewohnten Übungen + irgendwie falsch-gelegen beim Schlafen, kann man schlecht vorraussehen oder vermeiden sowas muss schnell "behandelt" werden - bestes Mittel: Dehnung! plus Wärmflasche/Sauna, YinYoga, Massagedetails

RJM9 daysI think this is a result of bad desk ergonomics - a day without mousing alleviated the discomfort. A day returning to it and the pain returned. Cycled through that again, same thing. I am working on my desk arrangementdetails
drbourret9 daysDefinitely a pinched nerve, that just needed time and IB to mellow out. details

SimonB15 daysjust rested, no running or doing too much, some good physio back massages helped and on the bike and then stretching afterwards. so have effectively recovered will just have to keep working on my flexibility for the next month!details
shadmika15 daysLaid off the back lifting and gave it time.details
YouRNotHere18 daysI am marking this as recovered but I can still feel it sometimes. I took 4 days of total rest which helped. Then started up with the P90X program and stopped any exercise that felt like it was hitting that area of my back. I still have arm pain which started in the shoulder but has moved to the elbow.details
gas_turbine19 daysCall it recovered.... Basically, avoided running for a solid week, while keeping my brain thinking I'm working out by doing the long indoor bike rides. details

Mahuan!27 daysThe answer to this problem is to do yoga. And, apply some work station ergonomics. The other thing I learned though, is that two things can really tweak the back muscles--changing to a new bike position (ie TT), and high intensity weight workouts.details

willgardner40 daysMost likely cause by bad posture and maybe a fall taken at the British. Also heavy school bag mixed with the bad posture put pressure on it. Physio excercises helped to sort it out.details
O Steve!51 daysI think its related to skate training....thought it went away but reappeared during roller ski double poling...perhaps dont do what hurts it?details
Tooms67 daysCaused by muscle strain near where rib joins to vertebrae. Everything around it spasmed. Trigger pointing and foam rollering to maintain movement of my stiff upper back. Time. And some more time.details
