Pain in the right shoulder area with the appearance of bluish bruises is often the result of mechanical injury. This condition can occur, for example, if your mother's shoulder has previously been impacted hard enough to cause damage to the tissue around the shoulder. This damage can be minor, limited to the outer skin area, but can also involve deeper shoulder areas, for example muscles, joints, bones, and so on.
Apart from the injury, it could also be pain in the right shoulder as your mother experienced due to other factors, for example:
Skin infections, for example due to herpes zoster Intervertebral disc herniation (raised pads between vertebrae, usually associated with excessive spinal stretching, for example when lifting heavy loads while bending over) Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders, rheumatism) Deficiency of certain vitamins or minerals , for example, vitamin B12 Diabetic neuropathy (peripheral nerve disorder that occurs in diabetics) Tumors or infections of the spine that suppress nerves Post herpetic neuralgia (pain due to nerve damage after healing from shingles) Pain transmission from internal organs, for example pleuritis, cholangitis, etc. Our advice, if your mother's complaint has been going on for a long time (more than 3 days), you should check her directly with a doctor or a neurologist. The doctor will do a thorough neurological examination, especially in the area around the sore shoulder. If necessary, supporting tests can also be done, such as X-rays, laboratory tests, electromyography, CT scan, and so on.
At this time, your mother can first overcome her complaints with the following tips:
Avoid putting excessive weight on the sore shoulder, including for example to lift a bag or bucket that is heavy enough Compress the sore shoulder with ice cubes or warm water, choose which one feels the most to relieve pain Apply a pain relief cream, for example one containing paracetamol, around the shoulder a sore shoulder Do not over massage or massage the sore shoulder Use comfortable and loose clothing Do not sleep on the side of the sore shoulder. Routine exercise 3 to 4 times a week.
