    Traps burn 24/7


    It's been about two weeks now, my traps burn like hell all the time. I haven't worked them in over a week and it's not DOMS. It's a deep tissue burning and tightness, any ideas why or what could relieve it? I'm putting biofreeze on it several times a day to no prevail. Don't want to overdo ibuprophen.

    Thanks,
    Jim

    Have someone give you a deep tissue massage? Have you been stressed out alot lately? Could be just some serious fascia tissue tension. When you look in the mirror, how is your posture?

    Stress has been a bit high lately, super heavy work load with VERY short turn around.

    Haven't really noticed my posture. Today my back is a bit sore also.

    Stress kills my neck and upper back. makes for a nice recipe for muscle spasm's in my upper traps and surrounding muscles.

    I find I have to make a conscious effort to relax my traps and lower my shoulders a lot.

    That's what it is, my shoulders feel raised. Shouldn't Rhodiola help this?

    It only works so well. I actually stopped taking it about a week ago, it just didn't seemed to be effective anymore. I just started back today.

    I haven't found anything to get rid of that tension. Its always their lurking.

    Mostly no, sometimes in the neck area. Mostly on bench press or DB shoulder press.

    Came across this.
    There are a bunch of herbs that help relieve muscle spasm. Devil's Claw is specific for your condition but may be difficult to find. Others are Hops, Linden flower, Passion flower, Skullcap, Black Haw, Crampbark, Valerian root and Black Cohosh. If it is nerve related, Vervain is excellent. As these are muscle relaxers, try them when you're at home first to see how they affect your "ability to drive or operate machinery."

    Interesting find. Thanks. Lately I've just been popping a Soma or two.

    I'm allergic to soma.

    I just ordered Devil's Claw from NP. I let you know how it works.

    Oh, and great news! I just developed another spasm in my left shoulder. I think this one has more to do with the a$$ whipping I bestowed upon my shoulders and traps yesterday.

    soma, here I come.

    I was wondering if you had tried anything else.
