Shoulder Pain from Overuse
What most people call the shoulder is really several
joints that combine with tendons and muscles to allow a wide range of motion to
the arm, from scratching your back to throwing the perfect pitch. Mobility has
its price, however. It may lead to increasing problems with instability or
impingement of soft tissue resulting in pain. You may feel pain only when the
shoulder is moved, or all of the time. The pain may be temporary and disappear
in a short time, or it may continue and require medical diagnosis and
problems involve the soft tissues, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than
bones. And most of these problems fall into three major categories:
Treatment generally involves altering activities, rest
and physical therapy to help you improve shoulder strength and flexibility.
Surgery may be required to resolve shoulder problems;
however, 90 percent of patients with shoulder pain will respond to simple
treatment methods such as altering activities, rest, exercise and medication.
Common sense solutions such as avoiding overexertion or
overdoing activities in which you normally don't participate can help to
prevent shoulder pain.
