Change your life for the better — without pain!

Your Shoulders, Your Life

Your shoulders normally enjoy a wide and versatile range of motion; it’s the largest range of any joint in your body. They help you do so many things, from reaching an annoying itch on your back to putting on a shirt.

So, when something goes wrong with your shoulders, it affects your daily routine in the most trivial and crucial ways throughout your day. Chronic shoulder pain can constrict everyday life in many ways, not the least of which include:

  • Keeping you awake at night
  • Causing you pain while you’re dressing
  • Making household chores like vacuuming or dusting impossible
  • Not being able to hold a phone, book or newspaper
  • Making driving difficult
  • Sitting out most sports
  • Not doing a physically demanding job

Daily Routines Upset

Chronic shoulder pain can turn your daily life into a painful and debilitating experience in a matter of moments. Many men even start gaining weight when shoulder pain conditions start. When you can’t maintain an active routine, you fall into a vicious cycle of discomfort.

When you’ve suffered from pain in your shoulder for more than three months, it’s identified as chronic pain. At ReBalance, we have to diagnose the cause of your chronic pain to successfully treat it. We recommend that you write down when your shoulder hurts most, what you were doing at the time and how severe the pain was.

The Causes Vary

Your shoulder is actually made up of several joints linked by tendons and muscles. This organized combination is normally what makes the shoulder the most mobile joint in your body. When you suffer from chronic shoulder pain, joint pain can actually hamper your ability to do normal, daily activities for yourself. The causes of chronic shoulder pain vary tremendously, but may include:

Shoulder pain may come from the joint itself or from any of the supporting muscles, tendons or ligaments. The pain usually worsens with movement. While diseases in your chest, like heart disease or gallbladder disease, can also cause shoulder pain, this pain doesn’t worsen with movement. Rarer causes of shoulder pain include tumors or cancer.

Relief from Chronic Shoulder Pain

Treatment for chronic shoulder pain normally includes rest, changing the way you perform some of your activities and learning exercises to strengthen muscle and make your shoulders and neck more flexible. Your doctor may also prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines to reduce swelling.

You may need to lose weight to take the pressure off your shoulder. Losing weight and strengthening your upper body help you get more active, too. A complete health assessment, advice about your posture and nutritional guidance can round out the self-care steps you can take.
