I had been forgetting to do my exercise routine and got back to it today. This prompted me to remember that I had promised I would update everyone on my outcome.

Well the mid-back pain has pretty much gone! Unfortunately, I can't say if there was any one specific thing that made the difference since I tried to incorporate almost everything that had been mentioned in this thread which included:

- The exercise routines outlined above,
- Reading the two books indicated above,
- Using a fully adjustable office chair (with arms removed),
- Five visits to a massage therapist to work out the "knots" in the rhomboid area,
- Sitting on the edge of the seat at a suitable height with part of my weight on the feet.

I want to thank everyone who made suggestions as they all helped me to be proactive.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

hi NoteBender

I was wondering how long it took you to get better?

I have been having pain too and I just started doing exercises.

Thanks.

Hi Tararex,

I had some questions about your posting. I have been having a lot of middle and upper back pain lately.

I was wondering how long it took you to get better and how often you did these two exercises?

Did you do the first exercise at the gym? And also, the second exercise how heavy does the weight need to be?

Thanks so much. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I think it took a 2-3 months. In my specific case I believe I have a tendency to have ongoing tension in the left Rhomboid area of my back and playing the piano exacerbates the problem, however, as outlined in my previous posts the exercises as well as the other items helped significantly. I still sometimes need to get knots worked out once or twice a year by a massage therapist.

Unfortunately, I seem to have developed a little arthritis at the same height but in the spinal area.

The specific exercises are outlined earlier in the thread.
