The incidence of scapulohumeral periarthritis is relatively high. At an early stage, patients do not know that they are ill, because symptoms are often ignored, so it is necessary to strengthen disease judgment and go to the hospital when necessary. So, what are the characteristics of scapulohumeral periarthritis?
The characteristics of scapulohumeral periarthritis are pain, which is an obvious manifestation. At first, the pain is mild. If there is weather change or overwork, the pain will be aggravated, and it may develop into persistent pain, even unbearable. With the development of the disease, the patient will also have muscle spasm, dare not move at will, and be stiff when moving. This symptom will become more and more obvious.
Patients will also have a feeling of shoulder tenderness, and they are afraid of cold. Even if the weather is very hot, they are afraid to blow their shoulders. Therefore, they should avoid cold, especially when the weather is cold, which will aggravate their illness and make the pain more obvious. For patients, not only should they be treated in time, but also care should be strengthened. When they need to go out, they should wear scarves and coats as much as possible.
Patients can drink some hot ginger tea. After drinking it, they will feel warm, thus relieving pain and neck and shoulder discomfort. In addition, they can insist on doing neck and shoulder exercises, which can alleviate the problem of muscle rigidity. Patients with serious illness can consider acupuncture and moxibustion of traditional Chinese medicine, but only when they go to regular institutions can they achieve good results.
