    Muscle imbalance


    Ever since my back injury I have been looking at all angles to correct the possible problem. I have been noticing that I lean to the right and when I tense up, my neck pulls to the right. I am right handed so maybe this is why. My chiropractor also stated that I am more muscular and thicker on my right side than on my left.

    How do I correct these imbalances as they can also be a reason leading to my back pain?

    Dumbell rows. I do them every few workouts to check the balance between my left/right sides.

    I would do barbell rows and really concentrate on squeezing both sides equally. This might mean going a little lighter, but it will even out your back.

    I would do as much DB work as possible.
