    Question Pulled Maybe Torn Trap Muscle

    Managed to pull or tear my left side trap, woke up this morning in a dodgey position and jerked because I got a fright (not sure why), heard a massive crack in my neck then there was alot of pain straight after and now I struggle tilting my head to the left. Been keeping a heat pillow thing on it most of the day and taking painkillers regularly, just wondering if there was any way to speed up the healing process and how long I'd be out for?

    Thanks

    If you really want to know if the muscle's torn... Get an MRI. I really doubt you went so far as to tear a muscle by awkwardly moving your body. It seems more likely based on what you've said that you hurt your neck, or a tendon around it. When I injured my supraspinatus, I couldn't properly rotate or lean my head to my left.

    In terms of recovery: R.I.C.E

    I'm the same I'm having difficulty moving my head to the left and rotating it, probably should go to the docs but I might leave till' Wednesday to see if the pain dies down, take it I should be icing my neck/shoulder instead of placing heat on it?

    You did not tear a muscle, trust me. When I tore my hamstring it felt like I got shot in the leg, and I could not move it at all.

    Over a year but it was a partial tendon/muscle tear. Tendons take a lot longer to heal than muscles

    Yeah my neck's pretty F'd up, hope it stops hurting for Christmas though. Then after the year I'll start training hard and hopefully make as much gains as I can. PS I think I've pulled the mastoid? Muscle up the left side of my neck like the muscle just behind the ear?

    You've most likely just pulled the muscle. Keep icing it and try to occasionally stretch your neck.

    Just iced there, stretched it there too, should I alternate between ice and heat?
