Each day we move our shoulders in a variety of movements. Tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and bones are all intertwined in these movements and are vulnerable to injury, especially during activity and sports. Individuals who are experiencing in shoulder pain could be at risk from a number of conditions such as bursitis, tendinitis, osteoarthritis, or degenerative arthritis.
The symptoms induced from shoulder pain can vary from minor to severe:
- Disturb physical activity
- Disturb sleep
- Loss of range of motion
Individuals who take part in high-contact sports, or are consistently taking part in physical labor, are at a much higher risk of suffering from shoulder pain. Older adults are also more inclined to ache from shoulder pain.
Most shoulder pain treatment methods offered are short-term solutions. Over-the-counter medicine will only do so much. We recommend you seek professional assistance if your shoulder pain is strong and repetitive. You could be at risk of a more severe condition. Contact NexGen Health Care to schedule your appointment!
