Treatment For Neck And Shoulder Pain?
Afternoon doctor, your doctor asked me at first I had a shoulder ache I couldn’t lyrics right or left, well after a lapse of a day I ignored it and the next day my pain got worse, there was an infection of the larynx that spread to the shoulder muscles and the base of the brain, what was the first action, is there a therapy to relax stiff muscles? And what are the therapies for the medicine? Thank you
Hello Ilman, Thank you for the question.
Do you mean that the infection spread to the shoulder muscles and the base of the brain? Do you mean the pain that spreads to the shoulders and neck (base of the head)? The terms brain stem and base of the neck are not the same. The brain stem is the part of the brain that is between the cerebrum and the spinal cord, which has the role of controlling breathing, blood pressure, heart rate, awareness, and regulating one's sleep cycle. From your statement, I understand what you mean by pain in the base of the head / neck. If what you mean is different, you can re-create a new question.
Pain in the neck and shoulders is generally caused by incorrect posture such as when sitting, standing, sleeping, or bending. This pain is generally caused by muscle tension. Infection or inflammation of the throat is often caused by a viral infection. In addition to sore throat and swallowing pain, this condition can be accompanied by fever, cough, runny nose, headache, muscle and joint pain, easy fatigue, and decreased appetite. The muscle and joint pain that accompanies strep throat can worsen the neck and shoulder pain that you have experienced before.
You can do a warm compress or use a warm balm periodically on the affected part. If the pain is unbearable, you can take paracetamol or other pain relievers. In addition, you are also encouraged to take the following recommendations:
replacing sleeping pillows with a softer and comfortable one
get enough rest
avoid reading or working at the computer for a while
consume nutritious food
meet the needs of body fluids by consuming water
If this complaint has been going on for several days and has not improved at all, please consult your doctor immediately for further examination and treatment.
Hopefully this information is useful.
