Soreness, hard lumps near shoulder blades due to continuous bending. Treatment?

Help! I work in the dental field and I am constantly standing with my neck bent looking down. I have a large area between my shoulders that gets very sore and it looks kind of like a lump. It gets very hard and tender at the end of the day. I have been to MD and had xrays taken all came back normal. Went to pt for several weeks it helped but didn t stop it completely. I continue to do exercises as instructed. I am not over weight and I am active, I eat healthy. Help! Any advice would be appreciated.

Probably you have muscle strain as a result of your work scheduele which is worst at the end of the day because of excessive muscle fatigue. You could also be having cervical spondylosis. If all the tests have come out normal, you have to take pain killers off and on, some local analgesics, infrared or SWD therapy and do your exercises. You may also take short breaks and do relaxation exercises in between your work sessions.
