Topic - Upper back pain - exercises/stretches to help?

geebus - on 11 Oct 2012
I've been getting some upper back pain which is definitely related to indoor bouldering, if not the sole cause.

Not sure how much the climbing it's self is actually doing it, but the drops certainly aren't helping. I've been making an effort to climb down, but of course that doesn't always happen. When I do drop, have been making an effort to cushion the fall decently.

Pain is between my shoulder blades.

So looking for any advice on what I can do to strengthen the area.

Some history:
Previously had similar pain a few years ago which turned out to have been from wearing a heavy helmet on a sports motorbike. Same helmet was ok on a more upright trail motorbike.
Have also been doing cycling and running recently. It seems to be the cycling and bouldering that are causing the problems.
