Arctic Blast

por Jerome Princy (2019-10-01)

One of the most common complaints Arctic Blast Review I hear involves pain in the shoulder, particularly amongst my most physically active patients. Not only do they have shoulder pain but usually a stiff and sore neck from trying to keep the shoulder from moving (and hurting!) too much. Participating in sports that involve a lot of arm and shoulder movements, or working at a job that involves a lot of lifting or overhead work, can cause stress and strain and injury to different parts of the shoulder. It's important then to know what the exact injury is before it can be treated successfully. Today, I'd like to talk to you about some common causes of shoulder pain and what you can do about them. Arthritis: Arthritis can set into the shoulder joint after an injury or strain occurs. Treatment consists of anti-inflammatory and/or pain medications. When severe, sometimes the joint may need to be artificially replaced. Bursitis/tendinitis: Usually the most common cause of shoulder pain. These are inflammation of the bursal sacs and/or tendons of the shoulder caused by overuse mainly. Calcium tendinitis can also occur where calcium deposits occur within the tendons, usually of the rotator cuff. These conditions can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, rest, and gentle exercise to keep the shoulder moving properly and break up calcium deposits. Frozen shoulder: This condition can occur when an injury to the shoulder has gone too long untreated but it also can occur on its own with no known injury. It occurs almost twice as often in women ages 40-60 than men. Disorders of the endocrine system (diabetes, thyroid problems, etc) and Parkinson disease can also be factors. Inflammation and stiffness sets in to the point where it becomes very difficult to move the shoulder joint. This is also called adhesive capsulitis and is generally treated by physical therapy. It's important if you injure your shoulder to get treatment for it before this condition sets in as it can be complicated to resolve. Rotator cuff tear: The cuff-like band of tendon surrounding the shoulder that hold it in place is called the rotator cuff. With heavy sports playing or overhead arm activity, this cuff can tear and separate from the bone. Often times surgery is needed to re-attach the tendons, but other times it can heal with physical therapy, gentle exercise and/or rest. SLAP lesion: This is a tear of the labrum, soft, fibrous tissue that surrounds the shoulder socket. It occurs most often when you fall onto your outstretched hands. It is often treated with anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy. Sometimes, surgery is required to stabilize the shoulder if the tears are too extensive.
