LFK with humeroscapular periarthritis

LFK with humeroscapular periarthritis

Massage with periarthritis periarthritis The use of physiotherapy exercises occupies an important place in the complex therapy of various diseases. This is especially important in the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system and, in particular, the humeroparous periarthritis.

What is humeropathy periarthritis

Pleuralopathy periarthritis is a symptom complex that develops as a result of inflammation of the surrounding shoulder joint of soft tissues( capsules of the joint, tendons and ligaments).The incidence increases with age.
The defeat of periarticular tissues is due to a variety of reasons, including:

  • cervical osteochondrosis;
  • trauma to the joint area;
  • occupational exposure, leading to chronic microtrauma;
  • congenital features of the structure.

Brachial periarthritis syndrome is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • joint pain, aggravated by certain movements, depending on the affected area;
  • weakness and atrophy of shoulder muscles;
  • insta stories viewer
  • restriction of movements - characterized by varying degrees up to the development of the "frozen joint".

The goals of exercise therapy

Therapeutic exercises with the development of humeropyritis are a mandatory component of therapy and its task is to achieve the following:

  • prophylaxis of contracture development;
  • recovery of strength and muscle tone;
  • strengthening of the ligament apparatus;
  • improving local blood circulation;
  • increase in the volume of movements.

Therapeutic physical training is assigned at the stage of rehabilitation and is conducted under the supervision of a specialist.

Exercises of exercise therapy can be performed in different initial positions:

  • lying on the back;
  • lying on the stomach;
  • sitting on a chair;
  • near the gymnastic wall;
  • in the standing position.
Exercises with the ball
During the training it is possible to use a variety of subjects:
  • gymnastic stick;
  • the ball;
  • dumbbells;
  • rubber tape.

There are certain requirements for the exercise of exercise therapy:

  • gradual increase in load;
  • classes should be regular;
  • doing exercises should not cause pain;
  • exercises should be performed slowly;
  • begins with movements in the distal joints( wrists, wrist and elbow joints), and then move on to shoulder exercises.

Exemplary set of exercises

At first the movements are carried out, lying on the back:

  • squeezing-unclenching of fingers;
  • movement in the wrist joint( flexion-extension);
  • rotation with brushes;
  • hands to lower along the body, inhale them to bend them in the elbows, bring the brush to the shoulders, on exhalation return to the starting position;
  • bring the hands to the shoulders, produce the elbows;
  • bring the hands to your shoulders, raise your elbows on your breath, lower them down on exhalation;
  • to spread hands, relax, regain breath.

Exercises performed while sitting:

  • raising and lowering the hand on the healthy side, then doing the same with the patient with the hand;
  • hand-off;
  • movement shoulders up, down;
  • movement shoulders in a circle with the hands down;
  • movements in the cervical region - tilts, circular movements.

Exercises in the standing position:

  • flapping hands to the sides, forward-back;
  • walking, accompanied by sweeping movements of hands.

Complex of exercises Popova

Doctor Peter Popov developed his complex of exercises, which implies the principle of "small movements" - doing stretching, rotating, wiggling. Therapeutic gymnastics is built on simple movements that do not bring the patient any discomfort and pain.

Basic exercises of the complex:

  • raise shoulders maximally upwards and draw with the shoulders number eight first synchronously, then take turns;
  • pull the spine, lifting the shoulders up, linger, then lower your shoulders down, again fix the position;
  • perform the movement of the hands "scissors" - on the inspiration to spread hands so that the shoulder blades are connected, on exhalation - to cross;
  • take turns to raise your hands up, turning your body towards the raised limb, while lowering your arm down relax the muscles of the shoulder girdle;
  • arm bend at the elbow joint, lift, then lower it down and slowly straighten, repeat with the other hand;
  • make the lock, stretching his arms forward, perform wave-like movements, stretching the muscles of the shoulder and gradually increasing the tempo;
  • circular movements by hands, extended forward and connected to the lock;
  • put your hands palms down on your knees, tilt the body forward, turning your shoulder to the opposite knee, then straighten up and repeat the exercise with the other shoulder;
  • to tilt the torso forward, pull the chest to the knees, linger, trying to pull the shoulders to the legs, fix the case in this position, return to the starting position.
LFK with humeroscapular periarthritis
After completing each exercise from the main complex, it is recommended to do warm-up movements:
  • imitating walking, sitting - feet to shoulder-width apart, back straight, to raise and lower the feet, at this time to carry out sliding movements along the hip, inhale - to lower hands to the knees, on exhalation - raise them up;
  • is the same walking, in the sitting position, but the arms are made circular movements, from the hip to the knees, and lower if the pain does not disturb.

Exercise for relaxation is performed in case if there is a feeling of tension during the main complex:

  • in the sitting position, with the arms lowered along the body, the muscles of the shoulder and back relaxed - slow movements of the shoulders up and down, at this time, bend the spine, then slowlystraighten up.

Contraindications to physiotherapy exercises

In the presence of the following conditions of exercise physical therapy contraindicated:

  • the presence of circulatory failure from stage 2 and above;
  • presence of fever;
  • risk of bleeding;
  • high blood pressure.

Regular daily execution of the complex of therapeutic gymnastics allows to achieve positive dynamics, to achieve a reduction in pain, to improve the functional state of the joints.


Therapeutic gymnastics for polyurethritis: Methodology of Popov as a method of treatment

Shoulder bladder periarthritis is not as widely known as, for example, osteochondrosis of the spine, however no less painful and difficult to treat. It is an inflammation of the joint connecting the humerus and scapula, its periarticular tissues( ligaments, tendons and joint capsule).For the fight against this disease, drug therapy, physiotherapy and exercise therapy are used, as the course of physical exercises by P.Popov's technique has proved to be well.

Causes of the disease


Often, humeroparous periarthritis is one of the manifestations of systemic polyarthritis - a disease affecting all large and small joints. There are several reasons for polyarthritis today - it is believed that it can have a different origin. Depending on the origin, the following varieties of polyarthritis are distinguished:

  1. Infectious polyarthritis develops on the background or as a result of the infectious agent's damage to the body. Less commonly, arthritis is caused by parasites. Infection penetrates deeper into the joint with the current of passing blood and causes in it a specific inflammation, which is stopped after the appointment of effective therapy;in some cases after the transferred inflammation, changes in the function and anatomical structure of the joints remain.
  2. Rheumatoid polyarthritis. The etiology of it is not clear today; two main factors in the development of this kind of joint inflammation are identified:
    • , the heredity of
    • , past-transmitted viral diseases( parotitis, measles, respiratory syncytial infection, hepatitis B, herpes, cytomegalovirus infection)

    The starting point for the onset of the diseasesupercooling, stress, intoxication, disturbance of metabolic processes and the use of mutagenic preparations.

  3. Gouty polyarthritis. It develops as a result of impaired uric acid metabolism, as a result of which uric acid salts are deposited inside the joints and on the periarticular surface, forming characteristic nodules.
  4. Polyarthritis as a concomitant pathology of the underlying disease: systemic lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, granulomatosis, borreliosis and others.

Predisposing factors contribute to the development of polyarthritis: excessive physical stress, bad habits, excess weight, sedentary lifestyle. In particular, humeropathy periarthritis often occurs in people engaged in manual labor, lifting weights or performing the same type of motion with their hands for a long time.

Probably the development of this pathology in case of trauma - dislocation, sprain of the shoulder joint or bruise. In this case, there is an acute onset of the disease, associated with a traumatic situation in the anamnesis.

Clinical picture with polyurethritis

The leading symptom of the disease is the pain in the projection of the shoulder joint and shoulder blade, which is amplified by hand movements - attempts to lift it or rotate outward or inward. Pain sharp, burning, resting slightly decreases, takes nochy character. Hand movements are severely limited. As a rule, the disease takes a chronic course with periods of exacerbation and remission. Exacerbation of the disease can provoke:

  • Exceeding the limits of the allowable physical activity
  • Undercooling
  • Trauma

In the acute phase, there may be an increase in body temperature to subfebrile, general malaise, weakness. With infectious lesions of the shoulder joint, the body temperature can rise to high figures, and the pain can pulsate.

At objective survey the following picture is revealed: integuments in a projection of the amazed joint edematous, quite often hyperemic. Palpation of the joint is painful. In terms of blood, a picture of inflammation can be observed.

Often the disease takes an unfavorable course: due to frequent exacerbations, deforming changes in the joint surface and the absence of adequate rehabilitation measures, spines of the tendon-ligamentous apparatus are formed, stiffness( ankylosis, contracture) of the shoulder joint begins to develop, which gradually leads to a decrease in the function of the hand. Therefore, rehabilitation physiotherapy plays a big role in maintaining movements in the affected arthritic joint and preventing exacerbations of chronic periarthritis.

Technique of Dr. Popov

PA Popov for a long time specialized in restoring the functions of the human body after the trauma. He paid special attention to connective tissue - the ligaments and tendons surrounding the joints and bundles of muscle fibers. The theory and practice of Dr. Popov are based on the fact that as a result of trauma, the elements of the joint complex or fragments of the broken limb take an incorrect position, and the connective tissue "remembers" this position and continues to support it even after healing the lesion. The same happens with an inflammatory disease, including a humeropathy periarthritis: a person spares the affected joint in order to avoid the pain that causes movement by hand. The ligaments fix this position and prevent it from changing even after the inflammation has been stopped.

This ability of ligaments to "remember" the right position and support it, Dr. Popov began to use for his own purposes, by training connective tissue and helping her to take the right position. For this he uses the methods of "small movements". The essence of this method consists in the gradual "loosening" of stiffened in one position ligaments. For this, the patient is offered special complexes, during which he performs cautious, with a small amplitude, movement and at the same time closely watches his feelings. In the course of training a person should pick up those exercises, which he likes to do, and concentrate his efforts on them. However, this physical culture should in no case be accompanied by fatigue, tension or the appearance of pain. Normally, after exercising, a person experiences pleasant fatigue and relaxation.

You can begin classes only at the stage of complete remission or after the healing of the disease. To achieve a lasting positive result, you must practice regularly. The first changes for the better are not immediately apparent. In most cases, patients with pleural flap periarthritis should be engaged in the technique of PA Popov constantly, throughout his life.

The complex of exercises with shoulder-blade periarthritis

The method of Dr. Popov implies that each person chooses the most effective exercises for himself. However, for this it is necessary to perform at least once the whole complex, observing the internal sensations. After each exercise we relax, relieving tension from the muscles of the back and shoulder girdle.

Warm up the ligaments

  1. Conveniently sit on the edge of the chair, straighten the spine, hands on your knees. We start slowly to tear off the front often feet from the floor, performing walking movements. We move smoothly, stroking the legs with the hands from the hip to the knees and just below in a circle - thus we gradually use the shoulder girdle. We keep the rhythm of breathing.
  2. Performing light pendulum-like inclinations from side to side, we describe the imaginary eight figures with the shoulder belt, with the shoulders alternately being pulled to themselves. Having described several circles in one direction, we carry out movements to another - from ourselves. The muscles of the back and shoulder girdle are as relaxed as possible.
  3. We grasp one hand with the other hand and stretch our arms upwards, straightening the spine and hands. If the pain is not possible to perform this action, then the hands are directed down to the floor, and just as we straighten them, sipping the shoulder girdle. The back is rounded and slightly deflected back, the thoracic and lumbar spine bends back. We return to the starting position and repeat the exercise several times.
  4. We do exercise 3, but we bring our hands closer together, already. When tilting forward, we want to inhale, back - exhale.
  5. Repeat exercise 1 - walking while sitting.
  6. Perform pendulum movements back and forth, hands relaxed at the same time, move in the same direction as the back, coming forward, slightly crossed. The back is not tense, we move freely. When moving back, carefully join the blades with each other. Forward - inhale, back - exhale.
  7. Smoothly raise your hands one after the other, the brush looks down, the whole body is involved in the movement, the back stretches as if moving behind the moving hand. We add a turn with the head and neck towards the rising arm.
  8. We put the thumbs at the midpoint of the clavicle and perform circular movements with the elbows in front of us. Then we make the same movements in the opposite direction. Amplitude is increased gradually, observing the sensations of the body.
  9. We unfold the feet on the heels, directing the socks and knees to each other, and simultaneously slowly lean forward. Hands at the same time slip on the surface of the thighs and lower legs, the muscles of the back stretch a little. We unfold the stops in the opposite direction, directing the socks from each other - stand up, connect the shoulder blades, straighten the thorax, open the pelvis. Movement cautious, smooth. On the rise, inhale, when lowering down - exhalation.
  10. Exercise 1 - walking sitting.
  11. We put the thumbs on the middle of the clavicle, the arms are bent at the elbows. We are alternating the elbows forward and up, back and down. The transition between the movements occurs through the waist, the muscles of the back and shoulder girdle are actively working. Raising your arm up, turn your head in the opposite direction and stretch the interscapular muscles a little.
  12. Having relaxed the brushes, on the big circle we direct hands downwards before ourselves until the palms will not look outward in different directions, then we do the reverse movement. When the palms are below, we stretch our arms and shoulders, slightly springy;while the spine is fixed in a flat vertical position.
  13. We lift hands with the relaxed brushes, slightly bending the wrist, alternately upwards, lowering downwards. At the same time, we engage the muscles of the back and the whole body. Further, when the arm is raised, we bend it up at the elbow joint, straining the biceps arm muscle. Add the lifting of the arm bent at the elbow up, pointing up the elbow.

Tensioning of tendons

  1. We squeeze our fingers in the lock, put our hands in front of us and proceed to wave-like movements with our hands - from the elbow of one hand through the brush to the elbow of the other, first into one, then backwards. Then we perform circular motions, assembled into the lock by the hands, connecting to them the shoulder belt.
  2. One hand is placed on the opposite shoulder, holding her elbow with the second hand. We lean forward and, rising upwards, we pull up the elbow to ourselves. Move down - inhale, up - exhale. We change hands, we repeat.
  3. Feet is placed widely, we put our hands on our knees. Alternately, we stretch our shoulders towards the opposite knee, leaning forward, moving in the rhythm of the pendulum.
  4. Returning your legs to their original position, perform circular motions with your shoulders upwards first forward, then backwards.
  5. We put our legs as wide as possible, we rest our hands on our knees, lean forward. Do not move your back, we direct alternately the shoulders to the opposite knees. Should only be used shoulder girdle. We lift the case up, again we move our shoulders.

This gymnastics promotes both the prevention of complications and the development of already formed contractures of the shoulder joint.


Therapeutic gymnastics and massage with shoulder periarthritis

The shoulder blade is one of the most mobile and flexible joints. It is because of the wide range of movements that the scapula-humeral joint is often subjected to periarthritis.

The reason for the periarthritis of the shoulder joint can be caused by trauma, unsuccessful jerks or heavy physical work. When the shoulder joint is affected, not only medical treatment is required, an important condition here is regular massages, as well as therapeutic gymnastics.

LFK with periarthritis of the shoulder joint

In case the pain of the shoulder and shoulder joint is characterized as very strong, an anesthetic preparation can be taken before performing therapeutic exercises. It is very important to take into account that all exercises should be performed under the supervision of the attending physician or be coordinated with him. The fact is that a reassessment of one's physical abilities( under the influence of an anesthetic drug) can lead to an aggravation of the disease. If the periarthritis of the shoulder joint has pronounced symptoms, the complexity and number of exercises should be increasing. To begin in this case it is necessary with the most simple actions. Detailed exercise is shown in video 1.

As a rule, gymnastics with periarthritis of the shoulder joint is aimed at the development of joints such as the elbow, wrist and hand joints. Basically, the blade joint and the shoulder joint area are kneaded.

In the reflex limitation of the mobility of the affected shoulder or shoulder joint, caused by severe pain, treatment is carried out using thermal procedures. In addition, the patient needs therapeutic gymnastics. Thermal procedures can be carried out with a heating pad, which can be replaced with a bag filled with sand( warmed).In acute periarthritis of the shoulder and shoulder joint, gymnastics requires taking certain measures. First of all, the diseased limb should be fixed with a soft roller installed in the armpit.

If the shoulder periarthritis is in the acute stage, exercise should be performed in the supine position. With a reduction in painful sensations in the humeroscapular joint, it is possible to diversify the exercises, adding to them those performed standing and sitting. Periarthritis of the shoulder joint requires specially selected therapeutic exercises. The result of each action should be the relaxation of the corresponding muscle group. As for the number of exercises, this question should be decided by the attending physician, since he is strictly individual.

Periarthritis of the shoulder joint: some medical exercises

  1. To perform the first exercise, lie on your back. Bending both hands in the elbows, begin to squeeze and unclench your fingers in a fist. After doing about 10 times, shake with brushes. It is recommended to take at least 0.5 minutes to complete.
  2. The following action, aimed at reducing pain in periarthritis of the shoulder joint, is performed in the same initial position. Bending your arms in the elbows, begin to bend and unbend the wrists in the wrist joints. After doing this action 5 times, go to the circular rotations of the brushes, which in this case should be relaxed. It is not necessary to hurry. Feeling tired, let the joints rest.
  3. If the humeroparous periarthritis is in the acute stage, it is recommended to start exercise therapy from exercise, including the following: lying on your back and straightening your arms, start turning the wrists down and up.5-10 times will be quite enough, then you can proceed to the next exercise.
  4. While in the previous starting position, touch with the palms of the shoulders, while taking a deep breath, returning to the starting position, exhale. The action should be done 5 to 10 times.
  5. With periarthritis of the shoulder joint, it is very good to perform the following exercise: lying on a hard surface, bend your arms( in the elbows) so that a right angle is obtained. Do not hurry, start to spread the forearms in the sides. It is advisable that, when performing this exercise, the brushes of your hands touch the surface on which you are lying. The optimal number of exercises - 5 times.
  6. Brushes should be on the shoulders, elbows spread on the sides, taking a deep breath at the same time. Returning to the starting position, exhale. Repeat the exercise 5 times.
  7. Put your hands on your shoulders, raise your elbows forward, taking a deep breath, lowering your elbows - exhale. This movement helps to relieve pain in the shoulder, the shoulder joint. The total number of movements is 5-7 times.
  8. Putting hands in the starting position along the trunk, start to plant them on the sides. In this case, turn the palms up and down. Perform the exercise until the affected shoulder does not have a feeling of fatigue.
  9. If you have a shoulder periarthritis, the following exercise should be included in the complex of exercise therapy: the initial position is the same, alternately start lifting your hands up, while taking a deep breath and exhaling.
  10. Spread your arms across the width of the plane on which you are lying( palms down).With palms, try pressing on the surface. If at the same time you feel pain in the shoulder, the exercise should be discarded.
  11. Lying, as before, on a hard surface, stretch out your hands so that your hands are pointing upwards, for a few minutes, try to relax.

If something is not clear, help video 2. If the scapular periarthritis is at an acute stage, do not try to do the exercises to the maximum. Repeat them preferably three times a day, but the amount should be determined by the attending physician.

At the moment when the pain becomes less pronounced, the following exercises should be added to the exercise complex:

  1. Sitting on a chair, put your feet to the width of your shoulders. Next, proceed to bending the arms in the elbows, while taking a deep breath, unbending, exhale. Feeling behind the affected shoulder discomfort, you should stop.
  2. Raise and lower your hands in front of you, breathing in and out. Five exercises will be enough.
  3. Next, try to get your hand to the shoulder blade, then try the same thing with your hand with the affected shoulder. If the exercise causes you severe pain, it is better to abandon it.
  4. If periarthritis does not make itself felt by acute symptoms, the following exercise will do: put your hands on your knees. Take your hand to the side, hold it for a few seconds, then take a breath, the same should be repeated with the other hand.
  5. Put your hands on your shoulders, alternately start pulling your elbows to the knee of the opposite leg. In this case, the knee can be raised.
  6. Sitting on a chair, make a slope, one hand should be pulled to the shoulder, the second one down. Changing your hands, take a deep breath and exhale.
  7. With periarthritis, the following exercise is very effective: with shoulder joints, try to perform circular movements back and forth.
  8. Next, proceed to make head inclinations back and forth, then to the side. Do not rush if this does not happen, if there are dizziness, take a short break.

If the periarthritis does not make itself felt by pronounced symptoms, it is possible to include the following exercise in the exercise complex: the initial position is the same( sitting on a chair), stand up, spread your arms to the sides, taking a breath. Returning to the original position, exhale. Follow the exercise 5-7 times.

Exercise for brachial periarthritis in the starting position standing

Standing on your feet, begin to perform circular movements with your hands, lifting them in front of you. Then, while doing the same actions, drop your hands. Exercise is performed at a slow pace until the first signs of fatigue.

The starting position is the same, put your feet on the width of the shoulders, start the swings to the right and left with both hands. Exercise should be performed 5-10 times( depending on how acutely the polyarthritis makes itself felt).

Standing on your feet, hands at the seams, start to swing back and forth. The muscles must be relaxed. Next, try to alternate the direction of the hands( one forward, the other back).

Another effective exercise for shoulder periarthritis is walking, during which wide hand movements are performed. It is not necessary to hurry up in this case, it's enough for 1 min.

Massage with periarthritis of the shoulder joint

Massage with periarthritis

With the help of a complex that includes 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.


The complex of exercises with shoulder-flap periarthrosis

Shoulder-scapular periarthritis is a disease of the shoulder joint and surrounding tissues. The disease in most cases develops gradually. Initially, it manifests itself in the connection and disruption of the usual coordination of well-defined labor, domestic and sports movements. Then there are minor aching character pain, aggravated by movement. There is a limitation of movements in the shoulder joint. Sometimes there is an increase in pain but at night. In the future, these symptoms can quickly build up. In some cases, the symptoms of the disease are acute.

The causes of shoulder-scapular periarthritis are numerous. These include injuries to the shoulder joint and cervical spine;metabolic disorders and degenerative changes in periarticular tissues;cervical osteochondrosis, etc.

When shoulder-scapular periarthritis occurs, there are inflammatory phenomena in the tissues surrounding the shoulder joint with adhesions in the bag-ligament apparatus, deposition of lime in mucous bags under the deltoid muscle or the beak-like process of the scapula, muscle atrophy, impaired sensitivity.

Shoulder-scapular periarthritis requires long-term and patient treatment. In complex treatment, a great place is occupied by therapeutic gymnastics.

The tasks of therapeutic gymnastics in the treatment of shoulder-scapular periarthritis include: a) relieving pain in the joint region, training relaxation of the muscles of the shoulder joint;b) restoration of the volume of movements in the shoulder joint;c) restoration of muscle tone and muscle strength of the affected limb.

Therapeutic exercises with shoulder-shoulder periarthritis in a clinic should be divided into 2 periods.

1 period - a period of acute pain, a large limitation of mobility in the joint.

Tasks of therapeutic gymnastics of the 1st period: a) relieve pain, teach relaxation of the muscles of the shoulder joint;b) increase mobility in the shoulder joint.

Starting positions: - sitting on a chair - the shoulder blades are pressed to the back of the chair;Standing;

The end of the period can be considered conditionally with the subsidence of acute pain in the shoulder joint.

II period is the period of stable remission( pain reduction).

The tasks of the therapeutic gymnastics of the II period are: a) restoration of the movement( along all axes) of the shoulder joint;b) restoration of muscle tone and muscle strength of the affected limb.

Initial positions: - standing at the gymnastic wall;Lying on his back.

Relaxation, strength, stretching exercises are applied. Widespread use of exercises with objects: gymnastic sticks, maces, dumbbells: exercises at the gymnastic wall, with rubber bandages, blocks, exercises with fixing the scapula( special rocker).

Classes are held daily, in addition, patients should be engaged in therapeutic gymnastics independently at home 2-3 times.

Treatment should always be comprehensive.

Individual approach is necessary taking into account the disease, age and preparedness of the patient.

Each lesson begins with exercises for distal limb sections, breathing exercises and restorative exercises, then include special exercises for the shoulder joint, scapula and adjacent muscles.

"Approach" to a painful shoulder joint, it is necessary gradually( from simpler exercises to more complex exercises, not to do exercises "through pain"), alternating strength exercises with exercises for relaxation.

The success of the treatment is largely related to the patient himself and his perseverance in meeting all the doctor's prescriptions.

At the end of the course of treatment it is recommended to continue daily exercises in therapeutic gymnastics, avoid overstretching of hands and jerky movements, as well as work with high arms.

The following scheme of performing special exercises for the treatment of shoulder-scapular periarthritis is recommended: a) sitting on a stool;d) standing with objects( gymnastic stick, maces, dumbbells, rubber bandage, block).e) near the gymnastic wall;h) exercises "yoke";i) exercises with resistance to strengthen the muscular corset of the neck, shoulder girdle.

Following are special exercises of therapeutic gymnastics with shoulder-scapular periarthritis. Using them in combination with fortifying exercises, you can make a set of exercises to restore the volume of movements in the shoulder joint in any period of the disease.

For this purpose, it is recommended to fix the shoulder blade with special belts( the strap is thrown over the injured shoulder) and use such initial positions when the shoulder blade is less involved in the movement of the shoulder.


Pleuralopathy periarthritis is a disease caused by inflammation of tendons and periarticular tissues.
