I have a racer who is sore in the muscle that runs from the last rib bone back to the hip bone on the off side only, I have been using the laser daily and it's still tender. Anything else that i should be doing, she did race last week and wasn't competitive.

Could this be the major problem or could it be referred pain from somewhere else??

Ivan, if you mean the big coupling muscle, it's more than likely that the lower back is out of alignment, and the nerves are pinched. That's probably why it is not responding to your treatment. Get a good muscleman to fix her lower back and that should fix the problem.

Good luck and let us know how you get on, Ivan. Just make sure you go to a good mm who can fix backs, as a lot can't.

You would also need to give her a mth off while treating it & just free gallop her if u can, that is if its only a muscle problem not back & nerve related.with the laser its good to use it for 3 days then have a 2 day break then go again.
