Reasons for the pain in right shoulder blade?

Postby Dennis » Tue May 10, 2016 11:40 am

I have this problem for some time now and the pain is really is an agony. It generally starts around my right shoulder blade mainly, in between the shoulder blade and the spine and i don't remember any injuries as such.

Update: I have found the below solutions and any other suggestions are welcome

Overuse of the muscles can lead to shoulder blade pain. Other factors behind muscle strain include sleeping in a single place for too long, overusing muscles, lifting heavier weight than that which you happen to be utilized to, or altering the workout routine.

Gallbladder disorder: Pain can be caused by a gallbladder attack below the proper scapula, as well as the pain can radiate to the shoulder in the top abdomen.

Breast cancer: Cancer progress could be indicated by right shoulder pain, and patients ought to be assessed with a physician promptly.

Frozen shoulder: Also called adhesive capsulitis, it's thickening and inflammation of the shoulder capsule, which envelops the shoulder joint. The problem can take years to fix, but may be assisted in physiotherapy exercises.

Well, without knowing all the things you were doing before the pain started, I can only make a few guesses. It could be caused from poor posture. Maybe when you are at work or on the computer, it can put a lot of stress on the muscles. Same thing if you were driving or maybe holding some sort of object for a time. If you work out you could have pulled a muscle or if you sleep on your side that can put pressure on that area.

Most of the work we do nowadays, can have a huge impact on our backs, shoulders and hands. Especially if you are working an 8 hour deskjob. Just try some home remedies, but if they don`t work, consult a specialist for sure.

I have this exact same pain, in the same area. It's kind of bittersweet to know I'm not suffering alone. It last forever if left untouched and brings me to tears. I used to work in manufacturing and I think I damaged something with having to use muscles I've never used before. It's like a sharp stabbing pain. Arthritis maybe? Haven't been to a Dr yet for it. Does anyone have any home remedies to ease the pain?

That could be a multitude of things. There really isn't a good way to tell you straight up what it is.
It could be:
A pinched nerve
Result of poor posture
Flu/cold symptom
"Frozen Shoulder"

I suggest going to a doctor as soon as possible, and getting x-rays/examined. For now, restricting the use of that arm, stretching, and applying ice can relieve the pain.

Does anyone know what happened to Dynamic Motions CB-105, or the people behind? The website is down. I have been looking for one to buy, but no luck of course. Maybe a used one on eBay some day...

All the best,
