Hello, my name is***** thank you for your question. I am a qualified MD with 18 years’ experience and I am happy to work with you on this.
This is muscular pain due to working excessively on the laptop.
You can try with home treatment initially.
Rest: give rest for 2 days.
Ice: apply ice to the shoulder liberally, it will reduce the inflammation.
Compression: Compress the area with a shoulder splint, available in pharmacies. Also use a splint for the arm, you can use a simple towel in such a way that yur elbow is supported, this will give rest to the shoulder.
Elevation: keep the shoulder elevated above the level of the heart, at night when sleeping use a pillow under the shoulder. Avoid sleeping with the arm raised above the shoulder. Also be sure to take a correct posture while working on the laptop, avoid slouching and keep the laptop at a correct height.
Besides this, the most important treatment is shoulder stretching exercises. This alone will be enough to cure you.
Follow these steps, you should get relief with this.
However if it persists you should show your doctor.
Treatments your doctor can do for you are:
Physiotherapy - ask for a referral to a good physiotherapist.
Steroid injections into the joint.
Surgery - this is the final treatment option when all others do not work.
Generally home treatment should be enough for this.
Take care - wish you good health and a quick recovery. Stay safe.
Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.
If you need more help, please let me know so l can continue to assist you.
Thank you and I wish you the best of health - stay safe!
