Overcoming Shoulder That Often Feels Sore And Sore On The History Of Untreated Shoulder Injury?
Doctor, I want to ask. My father fell as a child, his shoulder was injured. But never taken to the hospital. Until now his left shoulder looks a distance (somewhat detached) but not swollen, which my father felt during this pain and soreness. When you feel tired, it hurts. I have asked to see a doctor, but my father did not want to. What action should be taken huh? Can it return to normal? Thank you very much
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the body because it can be moved in various directions. However, these advantages make the shoulder joint become a joint that is easy to experience dislocation (shift). If the head of the upper arm bone is only partially shifted out of the shoulder joint socket, this condition is called subluxation (partial shifting). If the entire head of the upper arm bone slides out of the shoulder joint socket, this condition is called complete dislocation. Symptoms that arise in the form of abnormal shoulder joint appearance (deformity), swelling, pain, bruising, and weakness. This condition is at risk of causing tears in the ligaments / tendons in the shoulder and damage to nerve fibers.
Shoulder joint displacement can occur forward, backward or downward. The most common type is dislocation of the shoulder joint towards the front. The cause can be injuries during sports activities (for example: when throwing objects), falling with arms in a stretched position, or a history of other trauma.
Unfortunately, access limitations prevent us from evaluating directly your father's condition. We recommend that you see your father directly to a doctor or orthopedic specialist so that proper evaluation and treatment can be done. In addition to the history and physical examination, the doctor may consider supporting examinations as indicated, for example x-rays. Handling can be given in the form of closed reduction to return the upper arm bone to the joint socket. If this procedure does not resolve the condition, your doctor may consider surgery. In general, this condition does require a doctor's treatment and cannot be overcome spontaneously without any treatment.
As a recommendation, your father is advised to get enough rest, avoid strenuous activities, and consume balanced nutritious food regularly. To enrich insight, you can read articles about shoulder dislocation. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
