Treatment for rhomboid muscle pain Apply ice to the shoulder, alternate ice with thermal compresses if there is no swelling, use pain relievers such as acetaminophen, use nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, keep the shoulder and arm down, do gentle stretches, sit up straight, use a topical pain cream. Excellent site, good advice and all that, I feel a pain when I move my head to the left, looking at the left shoulder, then I feel a sharp pain somewhere in the rhomboid area.
Rhomboid pain is calledpain between the shoulder blade and the spine (interscapular pain) that can even reach the base of the neck or to the middle of the back. I was doing a cat cow this morning without heating up %26, my back immediately blocked and my rhomboid A hurt.
If you think that your rhomboid problem is related to your posture and the work of your computer, definitely check out the next reading. This pain is very acute and I suspect that something in my karate or BJJ class stressed the rhomboid region. At first it felt more towards the spine, but by the end of my training it seemed to be close to the middle of the shoulder blade, but it doesn't seem to be right above, more or less close to the rhomboids. I'm dealing with what I can only assume is a rhomboid strain and can often “feel” if a muscle needs to be stretched or whatever.
This position can place the scapula in a suboptimal position, which can increase tension on the rhomboids. When it comes to muscular actions, the rhomboids are responsible for shoulder lift and downward rotation. An important antagonist of rhomboids is the serrata anterior, which according to some schools of thought has a myofascial connection with the rhomboids. After doing these exercises twice in a few days (I realize that you say you do it every day), what I think is that my rhomboid muscle starts to get really stiff and it hurts when I take my backpack to classes.
I have a habit of turning to the left and pressing my shoulders to sleep.
