Shoulder pain is often associated with physical activity, but may also be an indirect indication of increased risk of heart disease.
Researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health in the United States, look at the sore rotator cuff shoulder - muscles located in the back and around the shoulder joint and serve to stabilize the rotation of the humerus.
Experts surveyed more than a thousand skilled workers. The study found that the subjects with the longest list of risk factors for heart disease (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and so on.) 4.6 times more frequently encountered pain in the shoulder joint. They also have up to 6 times more likely to develop rotator cuff tendinopathy.
Scientists believe that the pressure control and other measures will help reduce discomfort in the shoulders.
