Stroke and Shoulder Pain

V.V. Luts, M.M. Oros


The study showed that the shoulder pain is a common complication of stroke, especially in patients with hemiplegia or marked hemiparesis. Shoulder pain was observed in each fifth stroke patients (19.9 %).
Hand swelling can serve as a predictor of pain syndrome in the affected hand, and regression of swelling is correlated with regression of pain syndrome.
Use of Xefocam in a dose of 16 mg per day by stroke patients with the first manifestations of shoulder pain, accompanied by hand swelling, significantly improves the condition of the patient within 2 weeks, and reduces the risk of chronic pain syndrome in the shoulder. Therefore use of Xefocam, adequate physiotherapy, proper care and timely rehabilitation are the main methods of treatment for pain syndrome in the shoulder in these patients.
