I've been climbing for a little over a year now, and I absolutely love it. However, typically about once a month I end up pulling a neck muscle (i believe it is the left trapezius, runs from the left side of my neck down the left side of my spine). It is extremely painful and I'm usually out for about 5 days. It only happens when I'm either dynoing or doing campus training, both pretty jarring exercises. Any tips to prevent this from happening, exercises to increase strength or stretching tips?
I go through similar spells of multiple problems in a row, every 6-9 months. When it happens, it usually means I need to see my chiropractor.
