Pain is not for whole day , sometimes it comes and goes .I feel tightness in my back portion of shoulder for whole day. now 2-2.5 months has past , pain has not eliminated.

ANSWER: Hello, Nitin,

You have cultivated muscle tone so much that the tone elevated to spasm. You altered your muscle/movement memory; rest, as you've discovered, doesn't remedy that problem. You need to retrain muscular control AND your approach to training. | see

A somatic education exercise will bring it under control. However, which exercise depends upon exactly where you are in spasm and the movements that that location causes.
