The shoulder is a solid, flexible and quite mobile articulation, the most mobile of the human body. It consists of three bones, the scapula, the clavicle and the humerus, as well as a muscles and joints system that units the arm to the torso and allows mobility in the three dimensions. Since it is in great demand in daily movements, the shoulder joint is vulnerable to traumas.
Shoulder pain causes
Capsulitis3, inflammation of the capsule joint
Rotator cuff injury
Referred neck pain due to a nerve root compression
A tendinitis is an acute or chronic tendon inflammation causing a more or less significant decrease in the joint mobility.
Local or diffused pain, increasing at night
Pain while achieving certain movements
Loss of strength in the affected region
Loss of joint amplitude
Lack of warm-up before an activity
Need for muscle rest
A bursitis is a chronic or acute joint inflammation of the serous bursa, in this case, of the shoulder. It results from a poorly treated tendinitis.
Similar to tendinitis
Reduced range of motion
More significant inflammation
Pressure is very painful
The therapist is a muscle and joint specialist. His solid training allows him to efficiently act on several shoulder affections.
Following the interview, the therapist will use, in appropriate cases, a massage to warm up tissues, reduce contractures and increase blood flow; essential oils and rubefiants (products with a muscular effect) as well as kinesitherapy techniques to restore the shoulder’s full amplitude and mobility.
To complete the session, the therapist will also recommend rehabilitation exercices.
In acute phase, apply ice for 15 to 20 minutes every hour for the first 48 hours.
To relax the muscles, apply a hot slated water compress for 20 minutes, 2 to 3 times a day.
Every morning and eveninig, rub your shoulder with a rubefiant (product with a muscular effect).
It is important to take note that your therapist cannot perform pathology diagnostics since only doctors have the competence to make a medical diagnosis. However, your therapist may act effectively to relieve your shoulder pain.
