Aortic pain is a common pain in the scapula area opposite the aorta and is not related to the artery. The aorta is called fibromyalgia syndrome in the scapula. This pain causes the muscles in the shoulder and upper back to tighten. Pressure on certain points in the back causes pain in other areas, and these points are called trigger points. A trigger point can occur in any muscle in the body and when it occurs it causes muscle tension and pain in all muscles. Fibromyalgia usually occurs as a result of repetitive contraction of the muscle due to sports movements or incorrect sitting while working.
Deep pain in the affected muscle and strain in the back muscles in the neck and middle back area next to the scapula, especially when waking up from sleep.
Constant and increasing pain.
A slight swelling at the trigger point with severe pain when pressed may move to another area along the muscle.
Difficulty sleeping due to pain.
Decreased range of motion of the shoulder and neck to which the affected muscle is attached.
Weakness in the strength of the affected muscle.
Factors that increase the likelihood of a trigger point:
Severe muscle tension or repetitive muscle strain. Repeating movement in the wrong positions increases the possibility of the problem occurring.
Psychological stress and stress at work can increase the likelihood of injury.
Drug treatment: regular pain relievers or the doctor may prescribe stronger medicines in cases of severe pain
Physiotherapy: It consists of:
Symptomatic treatment: pain and muscle weakness through heat sources, manual therapy, deep massage, and stretching and strengthening exercises.
Muscle rehabilitation: By knowing the cause of the injury, the patient is rehabilitated and given a program to treat the cause of the problem, especially the wrong postures, whether during exercise or work.
Injections of anti-inflammatory drugs in severe cases.
dry needling therapy.
Prepare the muscles before exercises by warming up and doing stretching exercises.
Taking the correct postures while performing exercises or performing daily chores such as using the computer.
Reducing stress and psychological pressure by practicing relaxation exercises and balancing work and rest.
The aorta is fibromyalgia in the back of the aorta.
Fibromyalgia (aortic) syndrome is a common pain in athletes and others.
Pain in specific points (trigger points) may travel to the rest of the muscle.
One of the reasons is to repeat the exercises in the wrong positions.
Wrong sitting while working may cause aortic pain.
Deep massage helps relax the trigger points.
Dry needles can relieve muscle tension and relieve pain.
Stretching and strengthening exercises must be performed to rehabilitate the muscle.
Adhering to a healthy lifestyle and relieving stress and psychological stress helps in treatment and prevention.
