Pleuralopathy periarthritis is a common sluggish inflammatory-degenerative lesion of tissues and anatomical formations surrounding the shoulder joint( capsule, tendons, bags, ligaments).Like any other pathological process, the periarthritis of the humeroscapular localization has its own peculiarities with regard to treatment.

The rules of rational exercise therapy and gymnastics in the treatment of pleuraepithelial periarthritis are described in this article.

  • improvement of microcirculatory processes and blood circulation in the affected area;
  • restoration of trophism of altered tissues;
  • cupping of residual manifestations of the inflammatory-degenerative process;
  • relaxation of intense muscle-tendon complexes;
  • strengthening of weakened ligamentous structures;
  • recovery of lost muscle tone and prevention of muscle contracture;
  • recovery of the required volume of movements.

It's important to remember! Correctly selected set of exercises with shoulder-blade periarthritis has a blocking effect on virtually all the links of the onset and progression of this disease. This is a full-fledged method of treatment, which must necessarily be controlled by a specialist!

Massage with periarthritis

With the help of a complex including exercise therapy and massage procedures, a quick and effective result can be achieved. Therapeutic massage can remove pain and prevent the formation of rough scar tissue. In addition, this method is able to eliminate the development of tendovaginitis, bursitis, myositis, to prevent muscle atrophy.

It is very important that the massage procedures are regular, enough to give them 15 minutes a day. Typically, the course includes 15-20 massage procedures that require periodic breaks of 3 to 4 weeks. To treat the periarthritis of the scapula and shoulder joint exclusively by the medicinal method is not enough, since this can lead to the development of reflex contracture( restriction of mobility).

In order to prevent humeroscapular periarthritis complications, it is very important to follow all the recommendations of the attending physician. After performing exercise therapy, the shoulder joint is recommended to be fixed so that the movements are minimal. For this, the patient should lie on a hard surface so that the arm is at a right angle.

Problems with joints are characteristic for all ages. A large load or a transferred infection can equally cause joint inflammation. Shoulder bladder periarthritis is one of the inflammatory diseases of the joints, which affects the joint of the upper limbs with the human body. However, it is not the joint surfaces that are affected, but the surrounding tissues.

The acute period of the disease implies treatment with medicamental methods, and when the inflammation subsides, physiotherapy and joint gymnastics can be used. Petr Popov developed on a scientific basis a set of gymnastic exercises that help to overcome the disease.

Complex of Popov: benefits of exercises with the humeroscapular periarthritis

The technique, called "small movements", has a significant effect with regular execution. It provides:

  • reduction of pain in the shoulder joint;
  • training of relaxation of muscle-retainers;
  • increase in the amplitude of motion of the upper limbs in the shoulder joint;
  • resumption of muscle contraction;
  • maintenance of the muscles of the shoulder girdle in physiological tone.

The essence of the

procedure The small movements used in the procedure are justified only in the case of the abatement of the inflammatory process. Otherwise, the patient will not be able to perform exercises qualitatively because of the pain caused during gymnastics. The correct execution of movements, supplemented by regular repetitions of the technique, provides a quick visible result. The therapeutic effect of Popov's technique is to restore the tissue position.

During the inflammatory process, swelling of ligaments and muscle fascia leads to compression of the joint surfaces and their mutual displacement. The course of anti-inflammatory drugs helps to anesthetize and relieve swelling. In this case, the disposition of the joints remains.

In parallel, the incorrect position of bones is fixed by means of connective tissue formations that appear in large numbers during inflammatory changes. As a result, the physiological motor amplitude is disrupted, and pain during movement is maintained, despite the absence of an acute period.

Regular joint training according to the Popov method provides restoration of limb functions. The movements are very simple and do not bring unpleasant sensations during their performance. Immobilized during the disease, the joint regains painless mobility.

Gymnastics for ligaments and tendons

  • Sitting on a stool at his edge, the patient should put his hands on his knees and sit with a straight back. Detaching the front edge of the foot as if walking, an imitation of movement is created. Stroking his legs from the hip to the knees with his hands, provide a warm-up to the shoulder girdle.
  • In the same position, the muscles of the shoulder girdle relax. Small alternate slopes of the body to the left and right are complemented by alternately tightening the corresponding shoulder.
  • In the same initial position, they stretch their arms upwards, preliminarily closing them with the mutual coverage of the brushes. From this position, you can make smooth lateral slopes of the body.
  • In a simpler version, tilt the body on the principle of a pendulum, sitting on a chair.
  • Raise alternately the right and left hand, turning at the same time in the direction of the raised hand. The muscles of the shoulder girdle are actively included by moving the arms bent at the elbows up and forward, and then back and down. In this case, the thumbs of the hands are on the forearms in a line with the clavicles.


There are a number of pathological conditions in which gymnastics according to the Popov method is contraindicated:
