    tightness on the right side of my middle back


    I woke up this morning with back tightness. My mid back has been achy for a few weeks and today it is really tight. What can I do to help with this? I can't do a lot of yoga positions for my back now, because they put too much strain on my arm and my right arm needs to heal, so I can't do things like "the dog pose". I do have a heating pad and was thinking of uses that.

    I love those velcro air heat wraps. They give off heat for 8hrs and you can wear them under a shirt.

    I have no money for massages. Is there anything I can do, without spending money?

    you lay on it , start at the low back and slowly slide your body down so the ball rolls up your back and as soon as you feel tightness or pain you stop and let it rest there then after the musclerelaxes you move it around a bit and try and work out whatever kink you have..

    try a goggle search you could prolly find a better write up and description online somewhere
