Shoulder Pain and You

Atlas was condemned to hold the celestial spheres on his shoulders and he did so without pain. The rest of us, however, may seek treatment for our chronic shoulder pain through various means.

Unfortunately, many otherwise responsible health care enterprises recommend the drastic options before examining the less-invasive, less traumatic, and less expensive choices. Harvard Health Publishing, created by Harvard Medical School, for example, offers an online overview of shoulder pain: How it may occur, its prevalence, and how it may be treated.

The section on treatments includes, "If you suspect a tear or are experiencing sudden pain from an injury, see a doctor right away, because you may need surgery to fix the problem."

While it is true that you may need surgery to reduce or eliminate your shoulder pain, it is also true that you may not, and there are several non-surgical options from which to choose before opting for a surgical procedure that will require risky general anesthesia.

Also unfortunately, the second recommendation to reduce or eliminate shoulder pain is usually through the use of medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which can cause severe or life-threatening gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding and ulcers in some people. NSAIDs have also been linked to a higher risk of strokes, heart attacks, and heart-related deaths, especially after extended use.

Even worse are prescription painkillers such as opioids, which can be highly addictive.

There are alternatives to chronic shoulder pain besides the drastic options.

If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain, you are not alone as it is one of the most highly reported joint pain conditions. It is so prevalent that some orthopedic surgical practices limit their cases to just shoulders and knees.

If you suffer from chronic shoulder pain (or if you know someone who is), you may want to consider a review of your activities to determine whether any are causing persistent problems. If so, you may want to develop a plan to replace these activities with other, less demanding movements until the chronic shoulder pain is under control.

Dr. H ReJoint can help reduce chronic shoulder pain.

 Depending on your wrist pain diagnosis, a physician may recommend a prescription pain reliever or even surgery to relieve your chronic joint pain. Both have serious negative consequences: Surgery is drastic and costly and some prescription pain relief medications have side effects that include the risk of addiction.
