Shoulder pain: chronic shoulder pain has become to be disease serious tendon tear, impingement, lime shoulder in recent years to a commonly encountered. More than every tenth person complains of frequent and persistent pain in the shoulder. In addition to the increased injuries – and pollution-intensive sports, often carried out without sufficient training and lack of preparation for chronic shoulder pain are life expectancy, responsible. The successful treatment of shoulder pain requires a precise diagnosis. The shoulder specialist must determine first the cause of shoulder pain any X-ray or magnetic resonance (MRI) on hand by history, physical examination, ultrasound. Then, a targeted, effective treatment can be initiated.
The most common shoulder disorders are: impingement / congestion syndrome: the tendons, which make it possible that we can move our shoulders and thus our arm, unite at the head of upper arm under the umbrella of the shoulder to the so-called Rotator cuff. Is the painful tightness under the umbrella of shoulder impingement. It is because available space under the roof of the shoulder is further restricted by various processes. This will cause an irritation of the tendons (rotator cuff) and of the Bursae. The result is a first load-dependent shoulder pain, which if left untreated often turns into a long-lasting, chronic shoulder pain. Tendon tear / tear of the rotator cuff: Continuous mechanical irritation of the rotator cuff under the umbrella of the shoulder (impingement) it can cause here a tendon wear, which resulted is a purchase or demolition of one or more tendons. A tendon is done mostly in a jerky motion, for example, in case of a fall or during sports, can arise but also insidiously. The tear of the rotator cuff is always a serious impairment of shoulder mechanism that does not by itself cures, i.e.
generally necessitates a surgical intervention. Lime shoulder: One of the most common diagnoses for shoulder pain is: lime shoulder. This is a caused by overloading or a local perfusion calcification in the rotator cuff, usually of the supraspinatus. Due to the deposits, the tendon is not only thicker, but you will lose also their elasticity. The consequences are chronic shoulder pain, often nocturnal appearance – and irritation of the Bursa.
