    What has your doctor recommended? Heat, rest? Ice? There isn't much that can be done for muscle aches and pains, strains, other than rest, light stretching excercises once the pain subsides a bit...
  • He said both and rest my point here is it was getting better I was off pain meds and moving better faster then I went to see a private physcio and now my whole back has gone tight and gone into spasms after a deep tissue massage why would that happen???she has aggravated my injury and also caused my whole back to go tight and into severe spasms I never felt discomfort or tightness like and now work has told me to go home and rest and said that the physcio should of never massaged my back knowing I have injury with soft tissue damage so I really do not know what to do nothing is helping this tightness or spasms its so un comfatable
