It’s Time To Feel Like A Winner! SHOULDER, ELBOW&WRIST PAIN
There are plenty of ways in which the common tasks of 21st-century life put the body under a great deal of stress. Sedentary lifestyles put additional stress on your body, which could result in pain in crucial joints like your shoulders, elbows and yes, even your wrists. Elbow, wrist and shoulder injuries are especially common as a result of workplace injury and overuse. While it is sometimes possible to take action to prevent an injury from developing, it is especially important to be able to recognize when an injury develops and to understand ways that you can combat that injury by identifying what may have caused the pain to develop in the first place.
Common issues that can lead to shoulder, wrist and elbow pain include: • Issues with poor posture • Carpal tunnel syndrome, which can develop from overuse of the wrist and regular, repetitive motions, such as typing • Heavy lifting • Athletic injuries • Muscle sprain • Muscle strain • Dislocation or hyperextension of the joints
