Shoulder Blade Pain Relief

Author: StressedOutStressFre

Hi welcome to another video. My name is Vincent Woon in this video I’m going to answer a question form my “ASK A QUESTION” section of my blog from one of my readers. Due to privacy policy I’ve copy an paste our email conversation to Pages. The question was asking for help with pain under shoulder blade. He said he found my videos in YouTube and went on to my blog and this is his story.

He said have sudden pain under his left shoulder blade & at first he thought it was a torn trapezius. He googled and found this website and showed me the picture here which is the subscapularis muscle and went on pain when he lift his arm up over his shoulder and at the same time lean forward or sideways. Also painful when he is coughing. He discovered that if he pull his shoulders back real tight cough, there's no pain.

He went on and he said he can't think of anything specific but he mention intense golf - haven't played for 10 years & started playing a lot for 3 weeks now he is hitting 50 in a couple of months. And haven’t sort any medical/chiropractic or physiotherapy help yet I asked him if he can point out where the pain/pains is? Whether it’s in middle left or upper right of the subscapularis muscle base on the pic on the link he sent me. He said it’s feel’s like it’s under the shoulder blade but suspect it’s something else and sent me to this website.This site explain the symptoms of where he thinks the pain is. BUT Can't really id which point he feel the pain - how should he go about locating the point? By pressing on it? How should it feel? Ok! I’m going to show you three steps to shoulder blade relief Number one to locate where the pain is, In order to locate where the pain is, you have to figure out what is a good muscle and what is a pain muscle. How do you figure out what is a good muscle and a muscle in pain? A good muscle should feel like, for instance there’s no pain on your just touch here, see how mushy it is how bouncy it is.

It’s nice and soft, the muscle feels like pain. He said he had a pain on the left shoulder so in order to compare to that he has to press to feel the right shoulder and see if there’s a difference. The right shoulder he should feel soft and mushy nice and no pain just like how we felt on the hand and on the pain area you will feel tightness and when you press on it you will feel the pain.

The tightness is what we call knots. Now that we know the difference between a good muscle, a pain muscle or tight muscle..When we work on it you can feel how the tight muscle will become the soft muscle and you can see the difference. Second step is to loosen the muscles in the area.

What you need to do is look for a wall hand on the wall. 90º for the middle of the shoulder blade, 45º is for the lower part of the shoulder blade, 135º is for the upper part of the shoulder. 135º for the upper part, 90º for the middle of the shoulder blade, 45º is for the lower part and let take a look of the side view, one step forward hand on the wall and stretch make sure you bend your knees. Let’s take a look at he front view, step forward and stretch make sure your knee is bend. Now that we have number one locate where the pain is, number two loosen it up and number three I’m going to show you how to work on it.

We go straight to the point of the area where you feel the pain, put some pressure on it, Make sure you use the tip of your fingers, here finger pads press on it and then move backwards, forwards, backwards, forwards. Let me show you the front view backward, forwards, backwards and forwards, back and forward. And you can also turn it this way, start with a small circle and probably bigger go forward and then backward.

Small circle and big circle. You can also have somebody rub on it and as you rub on it or you can rub it yourself like such, you can use your other hand to support your elbow and just rub this way. The pain is here and the muscle over here is going this direction, so what you are doing is you are rubbing against the muscle this way and as you rub you can feel that the muscles become softer like the muscle that you felt the good muscle in this area here earlier and that’s when you know the muscle is loosen up and the pain will be gone! Basically what this does is when you rub you create circulation to the area and when there’s circulation to the area it will take away knots and stuff. When that’s circulation there’s oxygen and oxygen oxygenate the place/area and it will loosen up the pain Thank you very much for watching and if you have any question, pleas feel free to ask me in the comment box below and if you like it share it with your friends.
