What Causes Pain In Between the Shoulder Blades?
The most common cause of pain in between the shoulder blades is poor posture—at work, whilst driving, eating or tapping away on our smartphones. We round our backs, our head comes forward and we collapse our chest. When you combine this with a heavy training load, before long, pain can start to develop in between the shoulder blades.
The Biomechanics Of Pain
When your upper back and shoulders are rounded forward, your shoulder blades start to pull away from each other. This over-stretches the muscles that support the scapulae—the rhomboids, lower trapezius and posterior rotator cuff muscles—causing muscle fatigue and strain in the mid back.
How Can You Fix It?
Even though your instinct might be to stretch your upper back, this can actually make things worse. To address the imbalance that is causing the pain, you need to stretch the muscles in the chest and the fronts of your shoulders, stabilise the shoulder blades and increase mobility in the thoracic spine.
