Hello,

This is Trapezitis and inter-scapular muscle spasm.

You need to first correct the posture. Use hot water fermentation, do breathing exercises, gentle kneading massage, myofascial release, IASTM, neck stabilization exercise, inter-scapular muscle strengthening exercises, shoulder stabilization exercises etc. to improve the posture and muscle strength.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Jay Indravadan Patel, Physical Therapist or Physiotherapist

My son did a cannon ball off some playground equipment and landed on his back. There is no bruising or swelling the area, but he was in a lot of pain after the incident.

Is this something that needs immediate medical attention, or is it something I can just watch for a few days?
