Hello doctor,

Once in two days, I get muscle pain or cramps in my rhomboid major. My T4 and T6 is usually pretty bound up. Also, I have minor scoliosis, and one of my shoulder blades is higher than the other. This is causing pain on my right side since that is the lower shoulder. I have chiropractor appointments once a week. Shall I get foam rolling on my back or two tennis balls taped together? Would doing this with regular chiropractic visits be bad for it?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You need to first ascertain the cause of the height discrepancies in the shoulder blades. Usually, it happens due to muscle imbalance, injury, spinal pathology, or any other reason. So, visit a physiotherapist to make certain the cause, and later you may work on the cause to eliminate the pain. Trying out foam rolling or tennis balls tied together may help, but you need to work on a strategy that provides you lasting relief from pain and cramps.
