We look forward to welcoming you to our community and reading your contributions and questions. After sitting at my PC for a couple of hours I realised that my right arm was aching like hell. I have yet to find an analgesic that touches the pain,( need it for car transfers) besides Id rather find out what is causing the pain than mask it and do further damage. I have had the same kind of pain in my right upper arm since last September, varying in intensity and also in the type of movement that triggers it. Like you pushing myself around doesn't cause me any pain, but reaching for things and transferring does. Anyway I am managing to live with it mostly and just hoping things will continue to get better. My upper arm does cause me some trouble with continuous ache at night time though, particularly when I lie on that side, so if it is bad I do take ibuprofen tablets before bed and rub on some Voltarol gel, this seems to do the trick. Take care with the physio - during my 4 months of physio I felt that a lot of what they had me doing actually made matters worse - it seems to be very much trial and error. Left shoulder pain and Right Shoulder pain is more of a symptom of a condition than an actual condition.
Shoulder pains are also often in sports persons especially the sports that require a lot of joint movement. Also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful progressive condition that occurs due swelling, thickening and tightening of the shoulder joint that causes difficulty in moving the shoulder within its range of motion.
The tension around the shoulder causes the humerus bone (the upper arm bone) to have limited motion and you are unable to effectively perform activities of daily living. Stage 2: the shoulder stiffness gets worse and the pain does not increasing in intensity, the muscles of the shoulder at this point can start to become wasted due to lack of use.
Stage 3: at this stage, the pain starts to reduce and healing starts to occur though episodes of stiffness still occur. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that form a ring around the shoulder joint, tendons are tough fibrous tissues that attach bone to muscle. Bursa is a liquid filled sac that is found under the joint and in between the muscles and tendons. When both of this are inflamed and start to swell, there is limitation in the movement of the muscles and thus joint movement is also limited. When the tendons and muscles become trapped between the bones, any movement causes a lot of irritation.in the event that the two conditions occur simultaneously, the condition is called impingement syndrome.
The shoulder joint is what we classify as the ball and socket joint where the ball is the humerus bone of the upper arm that fits into the socket of the shoulder blade.
The symptoms of instability can range from vague to severe and can sometime be described as ‘dead arm’. Injectable corticosteroids can also be used in very severe pain and can be used in frozen shoulder, the drug is injected directly into the shoulder and helps to reduce the pain especially in stage 1 of the frozen shoulder. This is also a treatment option that could be considered in the case of frozen shoulder and rotator cuff tear.
At the time I thought it was because I was lifting water and muck buckets (I have a pony) onto my lap with my right arm.
I first thought it happened because I had been repainting my back garden fence and thought I had overstrained the muscles, but resting for a while had no effect. I have adjusted the way I do things and am using my left arm more now, and I have good days and bad days.
Here are tips to help you deal with the pain, from the causes, symptoms and treatment options available making it easier for you to know what to do. The shoulder is a very mobile joint and pain could occur from direct injury to the joint and repetitive overuse of the joint.
The pain lasts about 18 months for every person and therefore its important to get the right diagnosis and management. The rotator cuff keeps the joint in proper position and allows it to move as it normally does. The sac can become inflamed and can start to swell causing bursitis, when the tendons are inflamed, it causes a condition called tendinitis. Swelling and inflammation is caused by injury to the joint or arm overuse in people who use their arms quite frequently and forcefully as in sportsperson’s who throw the javelin and the discus. These include: numbness, tingling sensation, weakness, locking or popping sensation and shoulder fatigue. Two types of surgical procedures can be done for the frozen shoulder like manipulation where you are put under anesthesia and the shoulder is rotated and aligned after which physiotherapy follows to maintain stability of the shoulder and arthroscopic capsular release where an incision is made inside the shoulder and any scars inside the joint capsule that cause pain are removed.
I also had an ultrasound scan and have a small tear in my supraspinatus tendon (though this can be found incidentally in many over-30's without symptoms). My pain feels so deep in my arm but like the rest of you it doesn't hurt during transfers. I would be interested in knowing if your pain is worse in the hand that you do everything with.
I had the Cervical X-rays done two weeks ago and will be getting the Official results on Monday from my GP. With only the Anterior to Posterior and Lateral it will not be a completely accurate report. The Acq is on the right, if not, all rights should read left, etc ) Axis spinous is level with the Occiput.
