Shoulder Pain From A Fall 2 Years Ago?
Want to ask? R nI felt pain in my right shoulder due to a fall 2 years ago, then after I checked there was no such thing as a fracture, but the pain was so intense it still hurts, and it feels like spreading to the neck of the ear and brains.
On the shoulders there are structures of muscles, bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, innervation, blood vessels, and skin. The presence of pain in the shoulder can come from one or more of these structures. Some of the causes of shoulder pain include:
Previous history of injury to the shoulder
Does the pain complaint persist or recur? Is pain affected by changes in position and activity? To determine the cause of the pain in the shoulder, it is necessary to examine directly by a doctor. In the meantime you can do the following tips:
Take painkillers if necessary
Apply a pain relieving cream if necessary
Apply a warm or cold compress to the affected area, which you think is more comfortable
Warm up before exercise
If lying on your side, turn in a healthy direction
Avoid lifting heavy objects
Avoid doing massage that is too hard on the affected part
If the tips above, complaints of pain in the shoulder are still not getting better, I suggest that you go back to the doctor directly so that further tests can be done if necessary with X-rays and MRIs to determine the cause of the pain you feel. If the cause is confirmed then you can be given proper treatment by a doctor. Handling of shoulder pain can range from medications to surgery. The type of handling will be adjusted to the results of your examination.
