DELTOID STRAIN OR AC JOINT INJURY?

DELTOID

The deltoid muscle is a large muscle that encompasses the shoulder joint. The deltoid is divided into three different portions, or heads, the anterior (front), middle, and posterior (back) portions of the deltoid. The deltoid originates on the lateral aspect of the acromion and clavicle and then inserts on the lateral aspect of the humerus. Its major action is to abduct the arm (lift the arm out to the side of the body) as well as assist in forward elevation (lifting the arm out in front of the body).

AC JOINT

The shoulder joint is formed at the junction of three bones: the collarbone (clavicle), the shoulder blade (scapula), and the arm bone (humerus). The scapula and clavicle form the socket of the joint, and the humerus has a round head that fits within this socket. The end of the scapula is called the acromion, and the joint between this part of the scapula and clavicle is called the acromioclavicular joint.

STRAIN OR SPRAIN?

Strains are injuries to muscles or muscle tendon units. Sprains are injuries to ligaments. Because the deltoid is a muscle, it can be strained, but not sprained.

IS IT THE MUSCLE OR JOINT INJURY?

The signs and symptoms of muscle and joint pain differ since the origin differs. Though some symptoms could be same, the type of pain experienced and the associated symptoms are different. Let's take a look at the differences between these two pains.

SYMPTOMS OF MUSCLE PAIN

▪️Muscle spasms
▪️Weakness in the localised area
▪️Coordination problems
▪️Paralysis in case of severe pain
▪️Stiffness

SYMPTOMS OF JOINT PAIN

▪️Swelling in local areas surrounding joints
▪️A slight warmth and temperature rise in the area
▪️Tenderness in the muscles surrounding the joints.

CAUSES OF MUSCLE PAIN

▪️Muscle Tension or Stress: Too much tension or stress causes severe muscle pain at times. The body creates toxins as a result of stress and tension and this leads to pain in muscle. However, its extent and severity will depend on the level of stress and tension that you are having.

▪️Over-activity: When you overuse your muscles by either exercising or by working too much for a long stretch, it is very likely that your muscles will start aching. Any physically demanding work that engages the muscles to take pressure mostly ends in muscle pain.

▪️Injuries: Sometimes, stressful physical practice or exercise or any other kind of physical work might cause major or minor muscle injuries.

CAUSES OF JOINT PAIN

▪️Injuries on the joints or on the bursae, ligaments and tendons of the muscles surrounding the joints.

▪️Various kinds of diseases like avascular necrosis, gout, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, bone cancer, leukaemia, osteomalacia, rickets, tendinitis.

CONCLUSION

The very basic difference between joint pain and muscle pain is that joint pain is local, surrounds only the bruised and affected joints and whereas muscle pain can be widespread throughout the body.

Muscle pain usually sores the area and the ache increases when pressure is applied on the affected muscle. When the muscle is stretched due to some physical activities the pain increases. However, the easiest way to identify muscle pain and differentiate it from joint pain is that the pain reduces when there is not much activity.

The joint pain, on the other is deeper, intense and troubles every movement. In fact, joint pain, unlike muscle pain, can be felt even when there is absolutely no external activity taking place. When you are still, either sitting or laying down on bed, you might feel the joint pain in such an extent that you will not be able to move.
