Shoulder Pain Relief for Injuries & Degeneration Pain

Aug 17, 2007
Did you know that according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, over four million Americans seek relief from shoulder pain each year? This number may sound alarming to you, but the fact of the matter is the shoulder is one of the most movable joints in the body, therefore making it one of the most potentially unstable.

The correct relief form pain plan can be determined depending upon what kind of injury or condition you experience. Only your doctor can decide which shoulder relief plan is best for you. Most shoulder pain problems are attributed to two things:

1) Injuries and/or Overuse
2) Degeneration of the tendons, joints and tissues

Shoulder Pain Relief for Injuries & Overuse

Many people who injure their shoulders need immediate relief from the pain. Injuries, such as a dislocated shoulder and a shoulder separation can be extremely painful.

* Dislocated Shoulder. When the arm is pulled backward and overwhelms the muscles, dislocation and pain can occur. If you dislocate your shoulder, in addition to the pain, you will notice a lot of swelling and bruising. It might feel numb and weak, as well. To receive relief from the pain from a dislocated shoulder, a doctor must push the ball of the humerus back into the socket joint. Then, you must wear a sling to rest your shoulder to heal and mitigate your pain.

* Shoulder Separation. Shoulder separation occurs when the ligaments that hold the collarbone to the shoulder blade are completely torn. Relief from a separation is simple: your arm among other prescribed treatments must remain in a sling until it heals.

People who suffer from either one of the aforementioned injuries can find immediate shoulder relief from pain by applying ice to the wounded area for up to 20 minutes three times a day.

Your doctor will more than likely prescribe pain killers in order to receive even more relief. Physical therapy in many cases will also be recommended. One word of advice, keep moving your shoulder ever so slightly or you run the risk of frozen shoulder which is a whole different scenario to deal with.

Shoulder Pain Relief for Degeneration of the Tendons, Joints & Tissues

Many times, people seek relief from shoulder injury due to the wear and tear of the tendons, joints and tissues. Tendonitis, arthritis and bursitis are common problems that cause inflammation and great amounts of pain. Most of the time, folks can find pain relief by taking Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen (Advil).

The first step to achieve shoulder pain relief is to visit your doctor. Your doctor will lead you in the right direction toward the pain relief you need.
