I pulled a muscle in my back months ago at work. I was doing physical labor and the next day a small part of my upper back was sore. The pain has since diminished and it no longer hurts to get out of bed. The muscle loosened up through stretching(it became very tight due to lack of use and exercise). Some soreness remains but is not severe. Will a program of stretching and strengthening the muscle eventually lead to normalcy? I will also add that the doc said I have mild scoliosis but that was not the cause of the pain. I wouldn't think that many symptoms would improve and never come back if it was scoliosis.
