Without the correct treatment and management of simple shoulder injuries you run the risk of the problem worsening beyond repair. Your tendons can calcify, essentially turning into bone. Small muscle tears can slowly become large until eventually your tissues separate completely. Lack of mobility eventually freezes your shoulder (frozen shoulder is a painful condition that results in approximately 90% loss of movement). Your bursas, small lubricating sacks, can inflame so much they become unresponsive to injections and medications. Neck pain can set into a chronic pattern, resulting in sometimes severe headaches.
On the contrary, a few simple measures like professional management from someone who knows what they are doing and a clear, simple to implement set of tasks you can do yourself can turn the whole thing around before it permanently impacts your life. Your tendons will heal themselves given the opportunity. Your body can regulate the inflammatory response and get on with healing tears and bursas. Your neck pain can be alleviated and headaches avoided. If you get on top of things early steroid injections and medications that will damage your gut can be avoided completely.
Too often we see people who have gone through a lot of pain that could easily be avoided. Arm yourself with knowledge and avoid these super common mistakes.
