What Causes Left Shoulder Pain In Women?
Left shoulder pain in women is more common these days and one reason is because many jobs women do today are computer based.
You may need to sit at the computer for hours on end each day. Poor sitting postures can lead to shoulder pain, but there could be more serious causes of left shoulder pain so you need to see a doctor in case your shoulder pain is a symptom of something more serious.
Left Shoulder Pain Heart Attack Symptom
Left shoulder pain needs immediate attention because it is one of the symptoms of heart attack.
If the pain is cardiac in nature, the pain radiates to chest, arm, neck and jaw. If left shoulder pain is combined with other symptoms like nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath, you need immediate medical attention.
Left shoulder pain is not usually very serious in nature unless it is cardiac in nature but you do need to rule this out by getting proper medical attention. Left shoulder pain after a fall or accident should also be immediately seen by a doctor.
Other reasons for left shoulder pain in women
Avoid lifting heavy objects till your pain is relieved. Apply ice packed in a cloth to your shoulder for five minutes.
You can repeat the same after 30 minutes, but don’t leave the ice on your shoulder for longer than 5 minutes. If you your shoulders immobile, it may lead to stiff or frozen shoulder. I have developed a complete shoulder pain relief program that you can get by clicking the link below.
Women who work in office and are sure that their left shoulder pain is office related, can get relief by exercising regularly. There are some easy shoulder exercises that can be done at home. You don’t need to go to gym or get the help of a physical fitness trainer to do these exercises if you follow my program.
Shoulder Warm-up exercises
The first and foremost thing that you must remember is you should warm up your shoulders before doing the exercises. If you start exercising without warming up, your painful shoulder may be aggravated.
One of the first exercises that I show you is how to bend and swing your arms like a pendulum. It is important that you move your hands freely without any stiffness. It looks similar to an elephant moving its trunk and I call it the pendulum exercise.
Shoulder stretching exercises
Once you have done warm up exercises like the pendulum exercise you can proceed to do shoulder stretching exercises.
Stretching exercises are very helpful in relieving shoulder pain. Pull both your hands behind your back. Lock your palms together. Now stretch your hands as much as possible behind your back. Continue for ten counts and then relax for sometime.
Repeat the same rotating your left shoulder clockwise and anticlockwise will relieve you from the pain. You can also swing your left arm front and back in full swing slowly. This will loosen your shoulder joints.
