Yes I do.
I tend to stretch before and after climbing.
I also do Yoga during the week.

My one thing that I've realized helped me, shoulders and also the area your talking about:

The only visual I can give:
Remember when you were a kid...pretending that your were "smooching" someone?
Taking your arms, and giving yourself one big ol hug???
I do that(minus the smooching part )
I wrap as far as I can holding onto the scapula(sp). Holding farther and farther.
I do this throughout the day, whether climbing or not.
There is also a great Article onFinger Back and Arm Strength by greatgarbonzo CHECK IT OUT!!


Good Luck and FEEL BETTER SOON!

Well, with any tensed muscle you need to do three things. Use heat, massage, then stretch. If you dont have a warm body to massage you then heat and stretching will have to do
