SHOULDER BLADE PAIN CAUSES
Rhomboid pain tends to come from jammed rib joints, or referred pain from problems in your lower neck joints. You’re posture while using phones and laptops, the way you sit on the sofa or in bed, and certain sleeping positions, are common ways to cause these problems.
HOW TO SLEEP WITH RHOMBOID PAIN
If you lie on your side and your shoulder is pushed right forward, this will distort the rib cage a lot. There’s 3 alternatives to avoid this…
You can lie on your back, you can lie on the other side, or you can continue to lie on that side but roll back off your shoulder. To do this bend your top leg less than the bottom leg when lying on your side
SIDE RIB DISTORTION CAUSING SHOULDER BLADE PAIN
Another way people can put their ribs out is by leaning on an arm while on the sofa, leaning on an elbow on an arms rest, or lying with your head propped on your hand. So, avoid those positions.
Rounded shoulders also put the ribs in a bad position AND a forward head posture can irritate nerves that cause rhomboid pain. So, lift your phone up (with a supported arm) when using it instead of looking down at it on your stomach. Put your phone on your pillow and lie on your side to look at it in bed.
