If you’re having trouble with shoulder pain, your priority is to get relief. Shoulder pain can interfere with every aspect of your life. By understanding where the pain’s coming from, you can get a better idea of how to treat it. An evaluation from a doctor at Beyond Medical in Altamonte Springs can help determine the cause of your pain. The following questions about shoulder pain relief can help you decide what kind of treatment you need.
What causes shoulder pain?
Shoulder pain can come from a number of sources to include dislocated shoulder due to an accident or injury, frozen shoulder, strains, and sprains, rotator cuff injury or tendinitis.
What precautions can I take to prevent shoulder pain?
Shoulders need to be protected, like any other part of the body. When going through your daily routine, be sure to avoid extra strain or pressure on your shoulders. Don’t overexert yourself when doing handyman projects at home or at the gym. Avoid lifting or carrying heavy objects that put excess stress on the muscles of your shoulders. You may not feel it at the time, but later on, you could develop pain, stiffness, and soreness in your shoulder muscles.
