and then returns

What Can You Do At Home For Shoulder Pain Injuries
Always remember, taking painkillers by themselves, can only
hide the problem, but is not truly correcting the primary issue. One thing that
is highly recommended for a self home remedy is the use of
"RICE", Rest-Ice-Compression-Elevate (and some cases exercise).
Rest- First step with any injury is that you want to rest the
joint No strenuous activities that may cause increase in swelling and aggravate
the area even more.
Ice- As the saying goes, when you are unsure if to use heat
or Ice, Go for Ice first! You want to Ice the injury for 20 minutes at least 3
to 4 times a day. Don't go over 20 minutes on the ice during the ice treatment,
for you don't want the swelling to become worse.
Compression-Due to the location of the shoulder, it's hard to
compress this area with an ace bandage, without some assistance from someone
else helping you to wrap it. In this case, Anti-inflammatory medication can be
useful to help decease the swelling of the area
Elevate (Exercise)- Elevation of the area, allows the
swelling to move back into the heart. For any injury, this is highly
recommended. Most importantly once the area has decreased in pain and swelling,
mobility (movement) is important to get the joint moving properly.
