As I sit with an ice pack in my armpit…

I saw my masseuse, Travis, today.     We worked on two problem areas that I have:  a) I have lower back pain when standing, and b) I have shoulder pain when I reach for things in front of me – like putting away dishes, or retrieving a glove from the dashboard where I had it heating.   (First snowflake of the season today!)

We worked a lot on my Coracobrachialis muscle – aka “Beer Drinking” muscle.  An audio commentary of the session would have to include things like “[whimpering sounds]” and “[sobbing]”.  I have been forbidden from doing any pull-ups.

I’ve been given a list of muscles to work out before I see him again, in order of priority:

  • Lattimus Dorsi
  • Trapezius
  • Hamstrings
  • IT band stretching

The general idea is this:  Due to years of sitting, I have built up certain muscles over others.  Now that I am standing a lot more, some of my secondary muscles are having to take over for my unequal primary ones. They burn out faster, and thus – pain. 

Time to go read up on ways to lengthen and strengthen the above.
