The pain from a rhomboid injury will focus on the upper back, between the shoulder blades. The pain may increase when you move or breathe. A strain causes pain in the upper back, between the shoulder blade and the spine. A spasm feels like a knot or tension in the muscle.
You may have pain when you move your shoulders or when you breathe. Pain along the medial shoulder edge is much more commonly associated with the cervical spine than with anything else related to the rhomboids. I'm not saying that you need to stop stretching or rolling this area, but there are many active and beneficial strategies if you've only been getting short-term relief. Modify what you can and don't worry about what you can't.
It is usually due to a muscle strain, spasm, or knot in the rhomboid muscle. By stretching the hyperactive rhomboid muscles, you will help them relax and reduce pain between the shoulder blades. In general, the goal would be to place the scapula in the correct positions so that the rhomboid can function at an optimal length. However, if you have persisted with these exercises and continue to experience many symptoms in the area between the shoulder blade and the spine, I suspect that perhaps the structure that generates the pain is not really the rhomboids.
The first thing to do when you have a rhomboid muscle injury is to stop the activity that caused the injury. So is the pain due to my hunched over position? And if so, what type of exercise do you recommend to straighten my posture and what should I do to ease the pain? Sometimes it hurts a lot. When it comes to muscular actions, the rhomboids are responsible for shoulder lift and downward rotation. Rounded shoulders place the shoulder blades in a position where the rhomboids are constantly active to counteract forward shoulder traction.
The purpose of this blog is to discuss why your “rhomboid pain” isn't really due to your rhomboids, and to provide some simple, practical tips and exercises to help you. If you think that your rhomboid problem is related to your posture and the work of your computer, definitely check out the next reading. Hello, man, often the pain in the rhomboid area comes from poor posture, as you said, so the muscle stretches too much. Since I always have pain in the rhomboid and throughout the scapula, it could be due to the pectoralis pushing it forward.
I'm not very good at anatomy, but looking at an image of the back I would say that it is more or less the small rhomboid.
