How to Treat a Trapezius Injury

by Ian Brown

This issue's focus will be on the Trapezius muscle (fig 1.1). Injury to this muscle can occur anywhere from the lower back to the base of the skull and over to the shoulder blade and shoulder. Most injuries occur between the cervical (neck) section of the spine and the shoulder. Injuries can occur from weightlifting, rowing exercises or contact sports. Such injuries may cause numbness, tingling or weakness into the arm, hand or chest due to the impinging of the nerves that innervate these areas.

Once again, proper stretching should be done before, after and even during activities to help prevent such injuries from happening. If an injury occurs to the trapezius, ice should be applied for the first two days with very light stretching exercises. The stretching exercises are shown on in Fig 1.2 and Fig 1.3. You may then proceed with strengthening exercises (Fig 1.4).

When beginning strengthening exercises, only use approximately 50-60 per cent of the weight you are used to. This should be done for approximately 10-14 days with a gradual increase in weight. If discomfort or pain has not been eliminated within this time frame then a professional therapist should be obtained, if it has been eliminated then you may resume normal activities.
