A recent study released by the University of Utah illustrates that shoulder problems can emanate from injury, but that might not always be the case. While shoulder problems can stem from repeated physical stressors, heart disease can also be a cause.
The research behind this claim is based on a study of over 1200 laborers. The team found that those who already had risk factors for heart disease, such as hypertension, high cholesterol, and diabetes also showed risk for shoulder injury. Some of these had more than one cardiac risk factor, and some of those with prior shoulder injury had subsequent shoulder injuries!
The authors suggest that controlling the risk factors of heart disease may also help prevent this type of injury....that is certainly food for thought!
