upper back pain while stacksitting?
While stacksitting my upper back gets tense and pain starts to arise between my shoulder blades. I've never had upper back problems before, the pain only arises during my attempts to stacksit.

I use a wedge, roll my shoulders and follow the steps in the book - but I must me doing something wrong.

I'm wondering if it's the rolled shoulders that's causing the tension? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! :)

Thanks!

PS really enjoying 8STAPFB - it makes a lot of sense!

The most likely cause of upper back tension/soreness/pain while Stacksitting is trying to "hold" the shoulders in place. After rolling the shoulders back, relax and let them hang down - and if they don't stay all the way back, that's okay. You want to be moving in the right direction, but don't expect the shoulders to be perfectly positioned right away. You certainly don't want to be tensing the rhomboids (muscles between your shoulder blades that help keep the shoulders back) all the time, because you will end up with soreness or inflammation there. So roll your shoulders and then relax and let go.

I'm glad you are benefitting from the book!

Good advice. You could be right about that.

I've been focusing on making sure that I maintain the proper posture stances through out the day. In doing so, it's likely that I'm trying a little too hard. I could see how I might be holding my shoulder back in an attempt to stop myself from reverting back to poor posture.

I’ll make sure that I focus on relaxing into the forms instead of holding them.

Thanks for taking the time to answer my question.

I am having the same problem of soreness in my upper back between my shoulder blades. Guess I am trying too hard! Have other people had this and has it gone away?
