    If I were to guess, you're a right handed golfer.

    Where you've circled is muscular and I get soreness there when I bang a ton of balls as well. I think it's just a bit of overuse and it's gone after a day or so. In fact yesterday I played 18 and hit a bunch on the range afterwards and am sore in that exact spot right now. I'll hit a few more balls when I warm up but still plan to play today.

    Periodic Chiropractor visits to get aligned, pre-round and during round stretching help. If youíre looking for a natural anti inflammatory, check out bromelain (pineapple enzymes). I take two/day to help with the muscles around my four balky discs. Iíve started taking yoga classes to help with flexibility. Every little bit of flexibility helps with better golf and less pain.

    What do you consider periodic visits to chiropractor? Once every 3 months? More/less?

    Me too, but only sporadically. But once flared, OH MAN does it suck?!

    For me, a TENS unit works beautifully but it must be kept at a low to low/moderate setting. Higher feels great at the moment but it's more a case of diminishing returns for me as the area can then get really fatigued.

    My wife or kids have to place the electrodes on the dime sized spot as I can't reach. I've learned to treat both even when only one has flared. Seems best to keep them at bay longer.

    Common area of pain, a decent chiropractor can fix this in 5 minutes. Usually a C-5/C-6 subluxation, with a T-5/T-6 fixation, causing rhomboid hypertonicity. Treat the muscle, adjust the spine, problem solved.

    From what I see, the highlighted area where the OP is experiencing pain is more of a muscle type of pain. I would suggest warming up. Bend over touch your toes 15 times. Rotate back and fourth 15 times. Take a few easy practice swings before you hit. Drop back to 50 or 60 balls as well for a while. Wait until that area doesn't hurt before heading back to the range. Two Ibuprofen is always good about an hour before you make a bunch of swings. I don't go to chiropractors anymore since one gave me an adjustment about 15 years ago and herniated one of my disks. I have a teeter hangups now and do my own adjustments on the floor. But to each their own.

    Most likely an intercostal muscle strain. It's common in golf and other sports that involve some sort of "swinging" motion.

    And be careful, as it could lead to what Greekelite mentioned, which is called a subluxation. I've had it before and thought I was having a heart attack. It first occurred several years ago and still isn't right. I went to an orthopedic specialist and a physical therapist with no results. It was a chiropractor (and golf fanatic) that finally got me set right.

    Also, I'm very strong. So getting stronger isn't necessarily the answer as it didn't keep mine from happening. Mine occurred while using a battering ram on a breaching door.

    Didn't know it was that severe.. mine is more like a throb/ache, maybe a little discomfort on deep breathes, and an adjustment puts it back in

    But thanks for the heads up to not take it lightly

    I suggest 2 shots of Fireball before the range session and 2 more after the range session.
    Stretching always helps before and a little after as well.

    This is exactly what Iím feeling. Deep breathes really irritate it.

    Lower back for me. I don't even go to the range anymore. 9 holes or range session. I'll play 9 holes. But I think I know what the problem is. I have to go to a senior swing.

    At age 60 and four bad discs and arthritic shoulders, I go once a month now. Your body will tell you the frequency.

    Yes, indeed!

    I canít get my doctor to scrip me a real TENS, but the ones on Amazon do okay.

    I got this one. Not one of the cheaper ones but man, I love it.

    Buddy from NY was down visiting and couldn't believe the relief he was getting in his troublesome shoulder and back.

    LOL, he knew nothing of Amazon Prime either. Told him, "you want it, it can be here day after tomorrow."

    Got it and he's used it religiously ever since. The TENS... and Amazon Prime.
