Causes Of Pain In The Area Of the Arm And Shoulder Bones?
Hello, good afternoon Heni :)
Conditions like your father experienced can be caused by various possibilities, such as:
Frozen Shoulder, which is pain and stiffness in the shoulder area making it difficult to move. This condition occurs because scar tissue makes the protective capsule thicken and stick around the shoulder joint, thereby limiting shoulder movement. The cause of frozen shoulder is not yet known with certainty, but systemic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, thyroid hormone disease, etc. can increase the risk of this disease in dislocation of shoulder joints with arm / shoulder fractures with radiculopathy or pinched nerves etc.
To ascertain your father's illness, it is recommended that your father see a doctor (especially an orthopedic specialist or a neurologist) so that a direct examination can be done. The doctor may consider certain examinations such as X-rays, MRI, CT-scan , and so on, to help establish your father's diagnosis. Your father's diabetes can be related to complaints if what your father is experiencing right now is frozen shoulder (as we explained above). However, if the cause of your father's complaint is a condition such as joint dislocation or a broken bone, diabetes is not related to the complaint.
To help relieve pain, your father can try cold compresses there are parts of pain for 15 minutes, several times a day. Also, avoid strenuous activities on the shoulders that have complaints. If pain is very disturbing, your father can take over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol, but make sure that your father does not have an allergy to the drug.
Sekisn, hope that helps
