Pain in the shoulder and scapular areas in modern people occur very often. And the older the person, the more often. However, the mentality of our people is such that when we first feel a slight aching pain, we try to forget about it, not to pay attention. We refer to fatigue, overwork.
But pains in the shoulder and in the scapular region may indicate the onset of serious diseases: osteoarthritis of the shoulder joint, arthritis of the shoulder joint, and also of the shoulder shoulder periarthritis.
What is humeroscapular periarthritis?
Shoulder girdle periarthritis- this is inflammation of the shoulder joint, as well as inflammation of the tendons of the shoulder joint. Unlike arthrosis, the internal structures of the joint (cartilage, tendons) are not damaged. However, the pain is quite unpleasant, sometimes acute, mostly aching.
Peripheral periarthritis: causes
Suddenly bulleopathic periarthritis can occur: from excessive physical exertion (for example, you carried heavy bags), from falling, from a blow to the shoulder, etc. Moreover, unsportsmanlike people are more susceptible to this disease, since their shoulder joints are untrained and it is easy to damage them even with a sharp throw of an object to a short distance.
In addition to causes related to shoulder injuries or excessive exercise, there are a number of other causes. These include various human-borne diseases, for example: diseases of the cervical spine, myocardial infarction, as well as diseases of the mammary glands (more often after surgery).
The shoulder girdle periarthritis has, like many diseases, two forms of manifestation: acute and chronic.
First, the disease is acute. The pain from the light gradually becomes stronger and more acute. At night, a person cannot sleep because of this. In some cases, the temperature rises (up to 37, 5 ° C). The acute period of the disease lasts several weeks. Then the pain is reduced, and the disease, as a rule, becomes chronic.
Chronic humeroscapular periarthritismany patients do not treat, referring to the employment and moderation of pain. But this is the wrong decision. After all Any disease must be treated! By itself, it can not pass.
