My mother did RT gymnastics a few months ago. Then after that he felt his upper left arm a little sore, painful. Until now, it’s been 3 months. “If doing activities usually doesn’t hurt, it only hurts if you raise your hand, your back hand hurts,” he said. Have been massaged several times, last night how come the arm was bruised like that? Guess why?
Hello Cacapnjtn, Thank you for the question.
Complaints of pain in the upper arm can be caused by the following conditions:
muscle pain in the arm
cervical radiculopathy, which is a pinched nerve in the neck, causing pain in the neck that can radiate to the shoulders and arms
tendonitis, which is inflammation of the tendons (the tissue that connects muscles to bones)
rotator cuff muscle injury
Bruising is a condition in which the tiny blood vessels under the skin are damaged so that blood can leak out of the blood vessels and collect under the skin giving a bluish, reddish, purplish, or blackish appearance. Most cases of bruising involve direct injury to a part of the body. This condition may occur if the massage is too strong, causing the rupture of small blood vessels.
If this complaint has been going on for 3 months, please advise your mother to see a doctor directly. In addition to asking your mother's complaints further, the dotker will also examine your mother. After knowing the cause, the new doctor can determine the best treatment for your mother.
In the meantime, advise your mother to avoid activities that involve hand movements and avoid lifting heavy weights. Please take paracetamol if the pain is getting worse. Apply ice to the bruise for 15-20 minutes, 3-4 times per day, for 72 hours after the bruise appears.
Hope this information helps.
