The most common cause of shoulder pain and neck pain is injury to the soft tissues, including the muscles, tendons, and ligaments within these structures. In some cases pain arising from the shoulder may extend to the neck. When the pain is severe, weakness is experienced in the affected area. The weakness tends to occur mainly when movement of the affected area causes pain and discomfort. In some cases, the nerves of the area may suffer damage and this could also lead to weakness. During an examination, the doctor will attempt to identify whether the weakness is due to muscle or nerve damage or due to inability to move the area due to pain. When the nerves are bruised or pinched, normal sensation in the area is affected.In case you are not sure what has caused the shoulder pain or what kind of treatment you require, it is best to have yourself medically examined. If you find it difficult to simply move the arm or use it, and cannot carry objects because of the pain it would be advisable to consult your doctor. Medical care is also necessary if the pain occurs at night or at rest, when the pain persists for more than a few days, when there is considerable swelling or bruising, when there are signs of infection such as warmth, redness and fever, and if any other unusual symptoms are experienced. The best treatment in case of mild shoulder pain is rest. Resting the injured area allows it to undergo healing. Two or three days of rest is adequate and may then be followed by light exercise of the area. Ice compresses are also beneficial in alleviating sprains and strains. However the ice must not be placed directly on the skin. It is best to place some ice cubes in a plastic bag and then wrap the bag in a towel. This may be placed on the affected area for about 15 minutes after every two hours. Hot compresses help in treating pain and swelling, but must be used only after the first week. Keeping the area elevated also helps in treating shoulder pain as it relieves swelling. You can rest the area on some pillows. Care should be taken while exercising so that excess strain is not exerted in the shoulder area. Your diet should consist of lots of fresh green vegetables and protein rich foods as these help to strengthen the muscles. Individuals who suffer from arthritis should ensure that their diet supplies them with omega 3 fatty acids as these are beneficial fats that help in reducing pain. These fats may be obtained from oily fish such as tuna and salmon. Nuts and seeds also contain omega 3 fatty acids.

Hi lybrate-user One of the most important applications of good nutrition is that it keeps our immune system strong. Genetically all of us are born with a certain level of vitality or bio-energy. This is the very essence of life and it decides your immunity level. One can further enhance immunity by leading the right lifestyle, exercising regularly, eating correctly and taking sufficient nutrients in the form of supplements. Pollution, long working hours, poor stress management, use of stimulants, intoxicants, late nights, poor diet, overeating takes a toll on the immune function and affects the energy level. If there is a lot of toxin accumulation in the blood, you may find yourself getting very tired by the end of the day and this would affect work performance as well as affect the way you deal with people. The wrong choice of foods may make you irritable and short-tempered. This is because food influences almost every aspect of your being. Certain supplements help to improve immunity and boost energy levels. Selenium: Lately, researchers have acknowledged the many benefits of selenium. This trace mineral, until recently, was considered essential for animals but unsafe for humans. Selenium, which works best when taken along with beta-carotene and vitamin E, has the ability to boost the body’s immune system and protect it against free radical damage. As a result, you have a stronger immune system. Its immune boosting properties are attributed to its ability to enhance the production of glutathione peroxidase, a potent antioxidant our body produces. Additionally, selenium helps in the prevention of strokes and hardened arteries and breast and prostrate cancer. Without adequate intake, the body could be subjected to infections and degenerative diseases such as heart disease and cancer. As we age, our cells get low in selenium, which hastens the aging process. Research indicates that most age related illnesses, including physical and mental deterioration, can be decelerated by supplementing with selenium. How do we get Selenium in our diet? While foods like garlic, sunflower seeds, whole grains and brazelnuts do contain small quantities of selenium, these are not dependable sources as currently, most of our soils are depleted of this mineral. This increases the need to supplement. However, it’s possible for plant foods such black grapes, whole grains, onions, brown rice and garlic to retain selenium if they are grown in selenium rich soil. Quantity: If used for its immune boosting properties, a dose of about 100 micrograms is sufficient. If you are using it for conditions such as anxiety or depression, or for protection against heart disease or cancer, you would need around 150-200 mcg per day. You should not exceed this amount, except under medical supervision, as higher doses of selenium could prove lethal. Indeed, it is possible to tackle the above-mentioned conditions, with other vitamins, minerals, supplements and lifestyle modifications. Apart from selenium, there are other vitamins, minerals, supplements and lifestyles factors which work synergistically to prevent the above mentioned problems but selenium remains a prime player in boosting immunity.

Efore patients are permitted to undergo liposuction, their candidacy must first be determined by a qualified plastic surgeon. The best candidate is someone who is in excellent health, is within 25 pounds of his or her ideal body weight, and has deposits of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise. Men and women over the age of 18 who meet the necessary health qualifications may be great candidates for liposuction. Because liposuction is tailored to meet each person's individual needs, the exact cost of liposuction can vary significantly from patient to patient. Liposuction generally costs between $2,000 and $3,500 per treatment area The procedure used - Advanced methods such as ultrasound or laser assisted liposuction typically costs more than traditional procedures.
