    Best remedies to get rid of lat pull?

    noticed a deep right lat pull, along my spine. Hurts when I type, or when I pick something up, and when I go to put something down it (the lat) pretty much just fails.

    what happens when you do a light stretch?? find a honey to rub some flexall 454 or something on it and of course lay low on it for a week or so. i am not an expert, but try it and see.... good luck!
    Don't just call me pessimist. Try and read between the lines. I can't imagine why you wouldn't Welcome any change, my friend. I wanna see it all come down. suck it down. flush it down.

    You should post in the general health section, I am sure Delphi will have some sage advice.

    you have a disproportionation between the front of ur upper body and ur upper back. i really dont know what do when u get a lat pull but i know that once it heals, you should really focus on ur upper back strength and size

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Same as for any other muscle strain:

    Ice for 24-48 hours (no more than 20 minutes at a time)

    Heating pad ad lib after the first 48 hours

    Don't work the muscle until the pain's gone for about 48 hours

    Resume lifting with LIGHT weights- rehab the muscle

    Warm-up carefully before working the muscle

    Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve for pain-relieving as well as anti-inflammatory effects (Unless you have a contraindication for using the stuff)
