always040: Back/Shoulder soreness

Hey guys! I am a 1L. As such, I spend most of the day sitting in (non-ergonomic) chairs, or slightly hunched over, reading the pile books on the table in front of me, or slugging said pile of books around the law school. When I get stressed, my neck and shoulders (specifically where they meet) get tense, hot, and generally angry at me. So the stress of law school PLUS all this hunched over activity is needless to say doing a number on me. I have scheduled a massage next Saturday, but I am miserable in the mean time. I have been drinking a lot of water and putting heat on it at night when I can, but it doesn't seem to be helping much. Any suggestions?

Get one of those wheeling backpacks. Or have your books broken up and rebound in smaller sections and just carry what you need. Take IB profen or Aleve to ease muscle pain/inflammation.
