serratus posterior inferior muscle pain
Serratus posterior inferior muscle pain (jennie hogan | 15 Feb 2014 )
I am taking on a new client who has had issues with his back for some time.
he has had different diagnoses and has become frustrated and wants to see if we can get him feeling stronger again..
the first doc thought it might be his quadratus lumborum,the last physio thought serratus posterior inferior muscle was strained.
he has been cleared to work with me.
I meet him tomorrow for an assessment .
he has been experiencing this pain for about 8 months.
before this he was a physically active guy.he is becoming depressed, gaining weight and loosing muscle mass.
if he seems ok to train I was planning on gently introducing some back strengthening excersises,as well as core and lower body.i know the serratus inferior insertion attaches to the rib cage so I want to be careful of causing further damage.am I right to assume avoid cardio?
I am pretty confident on the stretches I can do with him,just wanted some feedback( hypothetical of course) on what you might do with a client in this situation.
like I mentioned he is clear to excersise..just in pain...for a long time.
looking forward to your feedback
