Cupping pulled out seven big holes in the back? ! Shoulder pain is not treated like this!

As you get older, you will encounter some pain problems. Dr. Clove has done a survey before. Shoulder pain has become the most painful pain besides lumbago.

Pain is distressing, but if the coping method is not correct, it may bring more pain.

This is a piece of news reported by CCTV:

Chengdu’s 63-year-old Uncle Li, because scapulohumeral periarthritis often has stiff neck, is going to use cupping to treat scapulohumeral periarthritis at the suggestion of a massage and physiotherapy shop clerk.

However, more than half a month has passed, scapulohumeral periarthritis has not been seen, skin ulceration and infection have also occurred in the cupping area, and they have been admitted to the hospital.

Ready, let’s look at the injury of Uncle Li…

Don’t seek medical treatment indiscriminately and bake the skin.

Uncle, this is the willpower of a revolutionary fighter… watching it hurts for you, really…

The principle of cupping is to fill the cupping with hot air and then stick it on the skin surface to form a sealed environment. As the air in the cupping cools, it expands with heat and contracts with cold, forming negative pressure attraction to the skin, as if it were [pulled] up by invisible hands, so it is called [pulled] cupping.

Such negative pressure attraction and thermal contact are not without risks. It may cause the following consequences-

Subcutaneous congestion

Cupping will definitely form subcutaneous congestion. Negative pressure causes blood cells to be attracted out of blood vessels and run to the subcutaneous surface, forming petechia and ecchymosis, just like being beaten.

For healthy people, these congestion is only ugly and will be absorbed after a few days. For people with coagulation dysfunction, this kind of ordeal may bring serious consequences.

Erythema, blister

If the skin is attracted by negative pressure for a certain extent, it may cause skin erythema and blisters, especially for patients with sensitive skin, eczema and atopic dermatitis, the risk is higher.

If the blister breaks, there is still a risk of infection. If you do not seek medical treatment in time, once septicemia forms, you can endanger your life. This is not alarmist talk.

Thermal scald

Our skin’s tolerance to high temperature is limited. Under normal circumstances, the skin surface temperature is 37 ℃. When it is raised to 44 ℃ by hot air convection, burn symptoms may occur.

The traditional cupping method relies on air to expand with heat and contract with cold to create negative pressure, while it is difficult to accurately control the temperature when using alcohol lamps and other appliances to produce hot air. Therefore, cupping burns occur from time to time, which is regrettable.

Shoulder pain, this is the right way to deal with

The exact cause of scapulohumeral periarthritis is not particularly clear, at the same time cervical vertebra diseases, gallstones, myocardial infarction and many other diseases may cause shoulder pain. The first shoulder pain must be consulted face to face with an orthopaedic doctor in a regular hospital, and targeted treatment after clear diagnosis.

The treatment of scapulohumeral periarthritis can be divided into conservative treatment and surgical treatment. Conservative treatment is preferred, and surgical treatment is considered only when conservative treatment is ineffective or the condition is very serious.

Conservative treatment includes three aspects: drug analgesia, rehabilitation exercise and physical therapy.

1. Medication

People always say that [drugs are poisonous in three parts], this sentence is reasonable but not entirely right. There is no completely good thing, dates are good things, but some people accidentally swallow date pits and live in hospitals. The same is true of drugs. Mastering the correct use method will not cause terrible side effects.

Drugs for scapulohumeral periarthritis are mainly painkillers, such as ibuprofen and celecoxib. Although some painkillers can be bought by themselves, it is recommended to take them under the guidance of doctors, especially those with gastric ulcer, severe liver and kidney insufficiency and other diseases.

When the effect of taking painkillers is not good or the pain is serious, you can consult the rehabilitation physiotherapy department or pain department doctor of a regular hospital and consider blocking.

Step 2: Rehabilitation exercise

Different from the concept of fracture [braking], the rehabilitation principle of scapulohumeral periarthritis is:

Activity, activity, activity again.

The rehabilitation exercise of scapulohumeral periarthritis can be divided into two stages. In the early stage of rehabilitation, when the pain is severe, do small-scale joint activities without causing severe pain, and cooperate with stretching and strength exercises after the pain is relieved.

If the pain is obvious, don’t rush to exercise. At this time, the exercise is not only very painful for the patient himself, but also the improvement of joint function is very weak.

Step 3: Physiotherapy

The physiotherapy here is not those [roadside physiotherapy massage shops], but the physiotherapy of rehabilitation physiotherapy department in regular hospitals, such as hot compress, infrared ray, ultrashort wave, etc. The specific choice of which physiotherapy requires doctors to choose according to individual conditions.

Some friends will find that these physical therapies are also available in some [roadside physical therapy massage shops]. Yes, but the operations for diseases are all treatments and require national qualifications.

Today, I am tired from my work, so I can find a massage place to relax. However, the treatment of diseases is the specialty of doctors, and professional matters should be handed over to professional people.
