I shoot right handed, it's on my right side, a muscle around one's belt-line( just at the top or just above one's hip ) near the spine.
I've taken some ibuprofen hoping to dull the pain.
Does anyone have advice to prevent it or how to treat/deal with it?
Is this something you don't normally do? I remember the same exact pain, except on the left (left handed shot) after pick up/practice but this was when I was first starting to play and my body wasn't used to the movement. Usually lasted a day or two but it went away the more I practiced and my body got used to what was happening.
