Those who don't enjoy reading there's a TL;DR at the bottom ;).
Crashees of STW, I too have fallen victim to my own confidence. I went for a 'hit' or maybe 'hip' jump, seems to be whoever I talk to calls it one or the other or I can't hear anyone under my lid.
Now I don't think I've ever had this much back pain, I'm only 22 my experience is lacking in this area.
All I can say is OUCH. The big long muscle which runs along the right of my spine (rhomboideus, looking at diagrams) kept me awake all night long.
For those who say go to the doctors, I'm open to the idea but I'm not sure what it is he could do? Apart from tell me I've hurt my back?
So has anyone got any tips on aiding my recovery? I'm hoping to race next weekend!
TL;DR: I came off my bike after attempting a jump, now my back (more specifically my rhomboideus) is giving me grief. Looking for tips to help recovery!
