Our expert says:
Dear Manda, pain and stiffness in the area of the shoulder blades could be tension related if it disappears from massage. Discomfort over the scapulae (shouler blades) can also be due to a problem in the neck vertebrae and specifically from the joints behind the vertebrae. This is referred to as cervical facet syndrome and responds quite well to physiotherapy
All the best,
Dr Joe de Beer
