Shoulder and Back Pain upon waking up
My father aged 64 facing a back & shoulder pain issue. His heart test and all reports are normal. Problem occurs when he wakes up in the morning, upon waking up shoulder and back becomes tight and gives lot of pain, it take him 15-20 min to become normal. Tried all the possible doctors in Roorkee city but no improvement. As per him he pushed bed with his legs and did some strong hand and back movement a week before the pain. We have been applying warm packs but pain is not subsiding. Please suggest a way or any possible treatment that can benefit him. P.S. The pain sometime happen in front too. But majorly it happens on back and shoulders. Thanks

Hello dear Thanks for reaching out His complaints are typically of a trapezius strain. However, we need to ascertain the cause behind. Reason behind such a strain is a weak rotator cuff of shoulder leading to increased strain on deltoid and trapezius. Now, at his age, he could have sustained a RC tear due to heavy work and developed trapezial strain as a consequence. I need to see his Xrays and MRI to confirm.
