    Rhomboid inuries are typically due to lack of shoulder mobility. Improve your shoulder mobility and you will reduce your symptoms.

    Also, dont neglect the antagonist muscles of the rhomboid which are ( I believe) the medial deltoids that is commonly neglected.

    I have been dealing with a Rhomboid injury from tennis for 2 years now and I think I have FINALLY FOUND THE SOLUTIONS...which you need to try if everything else has FAILED, meaning these did NOT work ( rest, ice, PT, muscle relaxers, anti inflammatory medication, Cortisone injections, massage, chiropractor, acupuncture, etc)

    Here are the BEST/MOST EFFECTIVE Rhomboid therapies so you can get back in the gym & start feeling normal again.

    1) Buy a Saddle chair - Especially if you sit all day at work on in school. You can find them on Amazon.com. It will help with your posture by bringing your shoulders & your neck back to take pressure off your rhomboid.

    2) Sleep on your BACK- with a piece of FOAM cut out to fit underneath your UPPER BACK to support your Rhomboid. Then elevate your legs by putting pillows or a bolster under your knees. This position will allow your rhomboid to heal at night & will be the most comfortable position to rest in.

    3) Find a Sports medicine Doctor- These are the ONLY types of doctors that MIGHT have seen a Rhomboid tear in their entire career, its very rare for even sports medicine doctors to have seen or treated it, So make sure you call around and see if you can find one who has treated a Rhomboid injury before, or just specializes in soft tissue & muscle injuries) Also, the best way to image the Rhomboid is by Ultra sound, so try to find a sports medicine doctor who uses an Ultra Sound machine to diagnose if you have a tear.

    3) S3 POSTURAL BRACE- Ask the sports medicine doctor to prescribe you a "S3 POSTURAL BRACE" this is brace that is made to help stabilize your Scapula so your Rhomboid can stabilize and heal. The reason Rhomboid injuries take forever to heal is because they are almost impossible to immobilize, but this brace is a total break through and will help tremendously.Google it to read more about it. You can just order them online as well, but they are around $400.

    4) Neural Prolotherapy- Find a sports medicine doctor who performs "neural Prolotherapy" and or "Prolotherapy". These are new injections that will eliminate pain & induce the injury to actually heal. google Neural Prolotherapy & traditional prolotherapy and read up about what the injections do exactly. They are NOT cortisone injections, which if you do have a real Rhomboid injury, cortisone injections wont work because there is barely any inflammation when it is injured because the Rhomboid muscle lacks blood supply.

    5) Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections- If the Neural prolo injections did not work then the sports medicine doctor can do PRP injections. Google PRP and read up about it as well. PRP, along with Prolotherapy, is a break through therapy that professional athletes use all the time and the results are amazing

    Good post.

    For me I've found the opposite muscle are the pec major/minor.
    I had a minor impingement related to a rhomboid injury, and found after it healed (only took 1-2 weeks) I still lost some shoulder mobility.
    Once I myofascially released the knots from pec major/minor (with tennis ball) & did some stretches I was able to regain mobility.
    I then changed my rows to 1-hand db bench, let my weak side dictate, and profit.

    It's a common mistake to think rest is enough to heal a muscle, actually after initial healing, mobility & exercise are crucial for full recovery.
    Anyway I can only say what worked for me, good luck brah

    Thank you for the information. I think I have been battling with a Rhomboid issue for a year now. I went to an orthopedic doctor and he was never able to tell me what it was, but as I research my pain (which I think he should have done) I am pretty sure it's a rhomboid issue. This would also explain why the 3 MRI's I did didn't show anything. I will be looking around for a sports medicine doctor that has some experience.

    I have a question for you. With your injury did you have a long muscle that ran down your back stay knotted up?
