When a shoulder disease occurs, the range of joint motion decreases, joint muscle weakness, joint instability, and joint surface damage, etc., cause a great discomfort in performing daily life. Collision syndrome, rotator cuff tears, calcific tendinitis, and frozen dogs (or fifty dogs) are common causes of shoulder pain.
Shoulder disease, which is more commonly known to the general public as a ‘five dog’ often encountered through pain clinics, is initially called periarthritis, and then the term frozen shoulder or adhesive capsulitis Is being used. The average onset age is characteristically in the 50s and is more common in women. It is closely related to diseases such as diabetes, ischemic heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, thyroid disease, cervical disc herniation, Parkinson’s disease and stroke.
In patients with stroke, the range of motion of the shoulder joint is limited, especially abduction and external rotation, and symptoms are expressed by inflammation and shortening of the membrane and ligament surrounding the shoulder joint and shortening of the shoulder joint elongation and rupture. Is triggered.
In addition, due to the limited active joint range of motion attack, aerodynamic (synergy), stiffness (spasticity), apt to cause even such fixed shoulder due to the armrest, including
adhesive capsulitis salt main treatment is the treatment and must first be preventive to avoid long-term shoulder fixed The goals are pain reduction, exercise recovery, and return to function.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and topical thermal physiotherapy are prescribed for patients with pain, training for stretching exercises, and physical therapy by a therapist is performed when the patient cannot exercise on his own due to pain. In the case of moderate pain, percutaneous electrical stimulation and ultrasound therapy are performed before stretching, followed by stretching.
cardiovascular disease Aspirin, which has been used for 20 years as a cardiovascular disease prevention drug, is used by the American Heart Association and the American Diabetes Association for men over 50 years of age or women over the age of 60 who have risk factors for cardiovascular diseases such as family history, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. This is being recommended. The World Health Organization also includes aspirin in its list of essential drugs to prevent cardiovascular disease.
Most heart disease specialists say that aspirin is the best way to prevent cardiovascular disease at the lowest cost. Therefore, in Korea, the sales of low-dose aspirin for the treatment of cardiovascular disease are more than 10 times higher than that of aspirin used as an antipyretic and analgesic agent.
However, Dr. Peter Roswell, of the University of Oxford, UK, recently conducted a study in collaboration with a Japanese research team, announcing that long-term daily use of low-dose aspirin can reduce the mortality rate of many types of cancer by about 25%.
In particular, those who consistently took aspirin among patients with colorectal cancer were 35% less likely to die, and those who took aspirin for 20 years had a 24% reduction in the risk of developing rectal cancer.
