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?
Could have pulled that muscle. I did that a few months ago, and it is EXTREMELY painful. Coughing and laughing hurt like hell.
To prevent it, you need to stretch those muscles out before shooting practice. Hip rotations, holding your stick on your waist behind you, and trying to touch your toes with the ends of the stick, are typically what you would do to stretch out those muscles.
