People Having Shoulder Pain Are More Prone To Cardiac Issues: Study

If you are having pains in the shoulder after certain types of works like lifting, hauling or wrapping, then it may be an indication of the increased risks of heart diseases. A recently published study has suggested that, while most people blames the physical damage for any soreness in the shoulder, but it might be causing because of some other reasons, like the cardiac issue in the body.

A new study held by the researchers from the University Of Utah School Of Medicine detects that individuals suffering from the symptoms shoulder pain and soreness in the shoulder are more prone to heart diseases or heart attacks. The symptoms of pains in the shoulder, joint pain, and rotator cuff injury put most of the individuals at bigger menace for heart disease.

On this matter, the lead author of the study, Kurt Hegmann, Professor at University of Utah School of Medicine in the US said, “If someone is having pains in shoulder or joint pains or even rotator cuff issues, then it not just because of physical strain, but there are something else going on in the body. There could be higher possibilities that their body is having the risk factors for heart disease, which every people ought to manage carefully.”

For conducting the research, the investigators analyzed the data received from 1,226 skilled laborers who regularly do physical work. And after thoroughly analyzing the data, the researcher found the higher possibilities of serious health problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and cardiac issues among those participants who are having shoulder trouble.

The study report published in the “Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine” revealed that “the participants with severe shoulder pain are 4.6 times more prone than those having no risk factors of shoulder joint pain. The researcher also suggested that the participants having mid-level heart risk are less likely to have either shoulder pain or rotator cuff issues.

While the repetitive physical strains are usually blamed for triggering shoulder pains and joint muscle pains, research reports published by the analysts of the University Of Utah School Of Medicine have put some serious lights on the risk factors of health disease.
