Treatments for Shoulder Pain

Treatment shoulder pain 1

  1. Rest: Avoid activities that aggravate the pain and allow the shoulder to rest and heal.
  2. Ice and heat therapy: Apply ice packs or heat packs to reduce pain and inflammation.
  3. Pain medication: Over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may help relieve pain and reduce inflammation. Beware of any existing drug allergies!
  4. Physiotherapy: Specific exercises and stretches can improve shoulder strength, flexibility, and range of motion.
  5. Immobilisation: In some cases, immobilising the shoulder with a sling or brace may be necessary for healing.
  6. Corticosteroid injections: Injections of corticosteroids into the shoulder joint can help reduce inflammation and pain.
  7. Surgical intervention: Severe cases, such as large rotator cuff tears or shoulder dislocations, may require surgical repair.
  8. Alternative therapies: Techniques like acupuncture, chiropractic adjustments, or massage therapy may provide relief for some individuals.
  9. Lifestyle modifications: Improving posture, avoiding repetitive overhead activities, and maintaining a healthy weight can help prevent shoulder pain.
  10. Treatment of underlying conditions: If shoulder pain is caused by an underlying medical condition like arthritis or bursitis, targeted treatment for the specific condition may be necessary.
