Hello Aprian, Thank you for the question.


Pain in the shoulder blades can be caused by the following health conditions:

muscle tension for example due to wrong posture when sitting for a long time at the computer, lifting heavy weights, exercising
scapula fracture
pulmonary embolism
aortic dissection

If this complaint is accompanied by paralysis of the hands, the possible cause is a pinched nerve due to narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis) or protrusion of the spinal cord (herniated nucleus pulposus / HNP). It is better to advise your parents to immediately consult a neurologist. The doctor will need to examine your parents and perform other examinations such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRI of the spine to find out the cause. After knowing the cause, the doctor will suggest further treatment. There is no alternative treatment that can overcome this medical condition, so it is better for your parents to seek proper medical help. To help relieve pain, apply warm compresses to the sore area or take paracetamol as directed.


Hope this information is useful.


Dr. Aloisia
