Thank you, that is the word that suits me best. My apologies to the MDs among you. This is such a subjective thing. You are all right of course.

Hombros y espalda lesionados


Explanation:
Hello. I agree with almost everything said above by pals. Maybe there is an issue of syntax though: to "have strained shoulders..." may be "tener esguince de hombros..." but "strained shoulders and back", as is, that may rather be "hombros y espalda lesionados" (Collins rendering). Mmmm, it seems that "esguinzado" does exist too, at least in 16 sport links dealing with strained ankles, but I can't find it (or "esguinzar") anywhere else ("hombros y espalda esguinzados"????). Anyway, you may check the two links below for more light on this. There are more if you google hombros+espalda+lesionados +esguince. Good luck with it:)
