Constant pain just under and between the neck and the shoulder. Keeps coming back and forth.

MPTh/MPT, MSC CVR, MANUAL THERAPIST
Physiotherapist,
Its trapezitis. Apply ice pack. Go to your nearest physiotherapist. Take ultrasound/ift/laser/ met/mfr/trigger point release/dry needling/kinesiology taping/theracise & you shall be fine in 1 day. Keep going and coming is because of your ill habits. You do not address weak muscles and neither you correct your neck posture. Address the concern comprehensively. Also assess your pillow for sleep, must have a pillow, width of your shoulder to neck.

Common causes of back pain are bad posture, injury to back during certain activities and lack of exercise. Repeated stress to your back and neck muscles causes pain even if your x ray and scans are normal. You should try some physiotherapy and learn about proper posture. Follow ergonomics while sitting at work or at home. Control weight and do some back strengthening exercises. If pain persists then you need to visit a spine surgeon for complete clinical evaluation.

Consult a orthopedic physiotherapist if there is tendon injury it can weaken the wrist muscles that are attached to elbow and cause difficulty using it. Gud luck.

Dear lybrate-user, I appreciate your care towards your mother. Frozen shoulder is a very common complication of diabetes and affects females more than males. It is because of deposition of glucose and proteins in shoulder capsule which is also called adhesive capsulitis which is seen as self limiting but painful condition which is treated by 1) good control of blood sugar 2) physiotherapy when it is not very painful 3) pain relievers, vit d and calcium. Already she has gone thru 6 months. Please be patient as she'll surely come out of it in next few days.

Visit specialist knee surgeon if you want cure for her problem. If you want home remedy, there are lot of products which are being advertised on tv. Try whichever you like at your own risk.
