Prolonged Upper Back Pain After Rafting?
About a year ago I took part in rafting for 3 hours, and since then my upper middle back often hurts during work hours, but when night is rubbed with ax oil, it disappears. but often relapses when sitting at a bad office desk or lifting heavy bags while working. after that a month later recovered. Now, after a year, he relapsed again with the same position of pain. what is this because of? and how to cure it, because before rafting was never like this even though you lifted heavy / sat badly in the office? Thank you for your answer.
Hi Ken, Thank you for the question.
Apart from pain, have you had any other complaints? Middle upper back pain can be caused by:
muscle tension due to incorrect posture when sitting, standing, or lifting weights
use of unsuitable shoes
the bed is too curved
lifting heavy bags
narrowing of the spinal cord canal
protrusion of the vertebrae of the spine
To ascertain the cause of your complaint, please see a doctor because without this examination the doctor cannot clearly determine the cause. The doctor needs to ask further questions about your complaint, examine your physical condition, and perform other examinations such as X-rays, CT scans, MRI, EMG. From the results of this examination the doctor will determine the next treatment for you.
Please do the following suggestions:
improve your posture when sitting, standing, and lifting weights
if you have to sit for a long time because of working or using a composition, get in the habit of always resting for a short period of time then doing simple muscle stretches
get enough rest
manage stress well
apply warm compresses to the affected area
if the pain gets worse, you can take paracetamol
Hopefully this information is useful.
