    Default Training traps with strained upper trap

    It's been 5 weeks since I injured my trap . First week I went to the cairoprator he told me do not train trap for a while and forget about the strain it will go away.its been 4 weeks since that time and it's still there. I went to the orthopedic yesterday he told me to take anti inflammatory pills for 2 weeks if It didn't go away I have to get a MRI. Do u guys recommend me to train traps when I have a strain ? ( low weight 15 kg max each side squeezing).

    thank you

    No.

    But five weeks seems like an awfully long time to recover from a minor tweak. How did you do it?

    I've improved on my spelling nazi behavior, but, come on! You gotta let me have this one. O.o

    Get well soon, Mozez.

    I left it for you purposely! Maybe there are prators in Cairo.

    Back OT. Don't train your traps while they're injured as there is nothing to gain from it.

    I tried training through a similar injury. Terrible idea. I now have a "winged shoulder". Basically my right trap slopes towards the floor.
