I was just wondering , because I am a teenager, and i have very tender arm muscles, i do work out, but in moderation, and i have been for a long time, but this pain is new. I do go 4-wheeling often , and now that it is winter the ground is solid and it is alot more bumpy. Since it is bumby the handle bars vibrate and bounce alot more, could this be the cause?
I think that is what is kicking your problem up a notch for you, those vibrations can be hell. Here is how you can release the muscles in your back which should help in the upper area for there might be some trapped there that you don’t know about yet:
Place your left hand on your left knee. Place your right hand over your left shoulder and with your fingertips find the muscle next to your spine. Press on it and hold. Relax, take a deep breath and exhale and don’t tense up any part of your body. After about 30 seconds there should be a release happening and when it does slowly lower yourself forward onto your right leg. If you can lean over the outside edge of your leg it will be better for your release. Continue holding for a total of one minute. Then release but rest your body there for one minute longer. Then reverse and do the right side.
For your arms below the shoulder press on the muscles that are tender with a good amount of pressure and hold. Now relax your arm and body, let everything go so your arm is very relaxed for this. After 30 seconds slowly raise your arm as high as you can, release the pressure but hold your arm there for another 30 seconds.
