I've had multiple shoulder issues, including my latest MRI showing
Patient :I've had multiple shoulder issues, including my latest MRI showing thickening and bursitis. I also now have straightening of the cervical lordosis. I work as a bedside nurse for 6 years, am I putting myself at increased risk of future shoulder and neck problems?
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com
I understand your concern.
Unfortunately you got an occupational hazard, and yes it will only further propentiate your shoulder and neck problems.
It would be prudent to meet an orthopaedician who can show you some exercises that you can do on a daily basis and also avoid some postures that can aggravate the condition.
Feel free to discuss further.
