If so, please contact Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers to learn about how we can ease your suffering. We’re eager to help.
Shoulder pain is associated with some of the most common musculoskeletal issues people deal with on a daily basis, and it’s no secret why.
In today’s society, a good portion of our time is spent hunched over, whether we’re sitting at a desk in school or at work, driving, on the computer, or even exercising. Over time, this poor shoulder positioning leads to poor posture, and this rounded position can be a root cause of chronic upper body pain.
Sometimes, this pain is reduced by simply re-training the body back into a proper position. While this is easier said than done, it is entirely doable for almost every individual. At the same time, there are certain cases that require a more detailed attention and observation, and these sorts of injuries can include:
AC joint sprains
Tendonitis or tendon rupture
Rotator cuff injuries
Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis
These types of injuries can come about in a number of ways, and it may be time to see a doctor if:
Your pain, regardless of whether it is dull or sharp, has become chronic
Pain is triggered when going through everyday motions
You cannot move your shoulder
The swelling or redness in the shoulder joint will not fade
You have continued numbness in your neck, scapula, deltoid, chest or arm
You feel weaker on one side of the body than the other
Whether you’re a victim of poor shoulder positioning or dealing with a serious injury, Oklahoma Pain Treatment Centers is here to help. Your pain can be managed – and even eliminated or reduced, in most cases – and we’re here to help pave your road to recovery.
