KORT Physical Therapist Says Shoulder Pain Shouldn’t Be Ignored
Date:6/20/2012

Lexington, Kentucky (PRWEB) June 20, 2012

The shoulder is one of the most complicated and well-used joints in our body. The anatomy of the joint allows us a tremendous amount of mobility and function to do all the things we love to do from playing sports to playing with our children. Injury to this joint can prevent us from doing even the most basic daily activities like brushing our hair and getting dressed. In fact, The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons reports that in 2005 alone nearly 13 million people sought medical care for shoulder pain.

According to KORT physical therapist Dr. Chris Kaczmarek, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, positioned between the tendons, muscles and bony structures of the shoulder joint are fluid filled sacs called bursa. Their job is to reduce the friction between the tendons, muscles and bones and allow movement to be smooth. However, when friction increases, inflammation, swelling and tenderness develop leading to intense shoulder pain called shoulder bursitis, said Kaczmarek.

“Shoulder bursitis can be a very painful and limiting condition. It can progress to the point where normal daily activity, recreation and sleep can be severely interrupted. The cause can vary from direct trauma to the shoulder to poor posture, but if properly treated, all symptoms can be resolved and you can return to your normal daily activities and recreation,” said Kaczmarek.

According to Kaczmarek, some of the more common causes of shoulder bursitis are:

  •     Increased repetitive activity. A recent increase in repetition of shoulder movement such as tennis, painting, or scrubbing a floor above what the joint is conditioned to perform.
  •     Age. Those over the age of 40 are more prone due to reduced elasticity of tissue
