These are some of the warning signs of chronic shoulder problems that you should watch out for:
Shoulder pain that comes on sudden and is sharp can indicate tearing. If your issues are dull nagging and have been around for a while can indicate muscle problems and joint dysfunction. If you have more issues using your arm, or if you have lost ability to use your shoulder normally. These issues can get severe to the point you lose feeling, have weakness, tingling, numbness, from the neck all the way down the shoulder into the hand. If you have any of these issues it is time to get in and see a professional.
Treatments for Shoulder Pain
Shoulder pain can be caused by anything from a rotator cuff injury to the onset of a condition such as osteoarthritis. In some cases, however, you may simply be overexerting your shoulder. The treatment your healthcare provider will recommend for your pain depends very much on what is determined to be causing it.
Directed exercises, and specialized stretching may be useful, as will resting your arm and trying to avoid or minimize any activities that may be contributing to your shoulder pain. If the problems are allowed to continue to worsen it may be necessary to look at surgery or medications. However, if we can get at the problem before it gets too severe very often major surgery or deep injections can be avoided. If you have shoulder pain that is new and distracting you from life or has been coming and going come in today for a free consult.
