Question: Hi! I have a sharp pain in my shoulder and below my breast from lifting heavy things at work. Tips?xAsked by cassandranicole

Hi!

The pain started in my shoulder and is now spreading down my rib cage and to my chest. It does get better when I use heat patches but not for very long. I can feel a knot beside my shoulder blade.

What kind of treatment would be best? I would not want something too aggressive! – I have quit my job now, so hopefully I will get better soon! 🙂 – oh, but it means that I am a bit on a small budget! 😛

Thank you! 

RESPONSE:

I am sorry to here about your troubles. First of all if your injury occurred on the job you should put in a work related claim. Even if you don’t work there any longer. If it happened at work it is a labor & industry matter. Get it documented as soon as possible. You can be eligible for therapy to get you better. It sounds like you have a muscle strain/sprain. Getting massage therapy care will help you pending no other issue are present to complicate things. Ice is always suggest for anything acute- that is to say for injuries that just happened. Try not to irritated it by lifting or doing any movements that irritate it. You can try laying on you side (hurt side up) with a pillow under your other side and bend to stretch open your side ribs and breathe deeply with the stretch. Andrew Wolfe,LMP

>Medical Massage and Insurance Coverage By Andrew Wolfe,LMP

April 26, 2010

>Medical massage therapy is recognized as a health care provision under rehabilitation outpatient coverage under most major medical plans. Specific plan coverage’s vary according to the benefit package your plan and/or employer offer. Medical massage therapy definition is the ability to heal, restore and improve function which was other wise compromised due to illness,injury,disease or surgery. It must be a part of a treatment plan your primary care provider recommends as medically necessary to restore lost function.
Provisions are also given towards motor vehicle accident (PIP)and worker’s compensation-labor and industry (L&I), job injury recovery care claims. Like wise, verification and preauthorization must be met prior to starting care.
The variation of massage therapy are vast, according to the training and experience of the licensed massage therapist. State laws are in place for licensing and certification. Further education and experience on the massage therapists part, when looking for a therapists is always a good consumer judgment call when seeking out care. When injured you should seek out a massage therapist with skill, training and experience compatible with the injuries and sustained ailments that you have. For instance, you would not want to seek out a massage therapist who specializes in spa massage. Injury treatment is specialized and has specific protocol and training, whereas spa massage does not. Insurance companies WILL NOT recognize a “feel good” spa approach as a medical procedure. A consumer should also ask about how is the facility or practice run, what kind of specialized training do they have, what kinds of clinical and/or experience have they have in treating specific dysfunctions. Recommendations from your primary health care provider, local hospitals are a good resource to find an experienced therapist. There is also a number of organizations such as the American Massage Therapy Association that has a referral source of massage therapists available at http://biznik.com/click?u=http%3A//www.amtamassage.org/&t=www.amtamassage.org
For the best results, advocate self-education and consumer awareness. As well as have a proactive approach. Be a willing participate in your healing and recovery will happen.
