“It’s Hard To Celebrate The Seasons With Nagging Pain.” SHOULDER, ELBOW & WRIST PAIN
It is common to fixate on the body part that hurts. It is often thought that because it hurts there, the problem is right there. However, this is typically not the case, as the cause of the problem is in another area. The body part that is painful is usually the one that is doing all the work, because other areas are not doing their job. Why it hurts Thebody istrulyamazingandalltheparts work together as one whole. However, when an area of your body becomes weak or stiff because of poor posture, stress or injury, other areas strain from the overwork. A common word that is used for this type of repetitive injury strain iscalled “tendonitis”.This issimply an inflammation of the tendons, which attach muscles to bones. The upper extremity works in 3 parts, the shoulder, elbow and wrist.They rely on each other to make the incredible movements of your arm so you can reach, grasp and do ordinary daily tasks we take for granted. Proper movement relies on your posture to be in good order. When you slouch
or sometimes do a repetitive task, like reaching across your desk, certain muscles can become too tight or strong while others become weak.This muscle imbalance leads to that area not working as well as it should. Solving the problem Typically a brace may be put on the area, but that does not solve the cause of the problem.The real reasoncanbebecause your shoulder was stiff and weak from slouching.
