Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. When I extend my right arm forwards with a stretch I get a pain in the red area shown below - just to the right of my spine between the spine and shoulder blade. It feels like a muscle is being trapped between the shoulder blade and something else, during day to day activities its fine and doesnt bother me but if for example im on a rowing machine it starts to hurt quite a bit.

    Can anyone advise some stretches or anything to sort it?

  2. I used to have the same problem. Sometimes it still gives me grief. I found that getting someone to give you a hard massage with their knuckles in the area solves the problem. It's often a knotted muscle that just needs working. Sometimes it comes back again, and another hard massage is needed.
