Default Hurt Trap

Hey, guys, I hurt the distal (near the shoulder) end of my left trap a few weeks ago while doing decline bp with dumbells. One started to fall away from me at the top of the movement, my arm looked like a tree that toppled over, to give you an idea. Now, my trap hurts whenever I stretch or flex it. It was a little shorter and fatter the first few days after, but it has evened out now. Aside from see a therapist, what do y'all recommend I do? Thanks for any advice.

I've been considering getting a tenderizing...by a 300+lb woman, preferably one named Helga, or something along those lines....otherwise, I probably won't feel a thing if I get one from a lil person.

Any recommendations as to what to look for in a therapist (they don't go by 'masseuse' anymore)? Or, what technique/style?

Your probably going to get more out of the strengthening exercises the therapist gives you as compared to the massage. I always found that was just a nice bonus at the end of a therapy session...especially if they are good looking.

You may want to see how much your insurance covers in regards to the therapy sessions. You can probably save a lot of money by saying you just want to do a condensed version where you do most of the work on your own and then just come in for evaluations/massage. I always found it stupid that I got charged to come in and do exercises in front of someone when I could just do the same work at home.

well if you actually tore something in there...then you'll have some scar tissue...and they'll need to beat it out of there if they have a website shoot them an email and see who would best qualify for what you need....or a phone call. the place i go to...my dad has been to everyone of them so i know who to go to.

Yeah. You must realize that all massage is not therapy. There is a difference between your everyday "relaxing massage" and some type of deep tissue therapy such as ART.

Therapeutic massage involves someone specifically trained in a certain technique (there are many different techniques) and you have to check up to see if they are qualified.

That said I think that it can be VERY useful in terms of recovering from injury but someone could do damage as well as good so do your homework.

Physical therapists are a mixed bag as well.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
