Three common nonsurgical treatment options for shoulder pain

Read through the three most common methods of nonsurgical treatment for chronic shoulder pain, and contact your doctor to see if these treatments are right for you. If you do not have a doctor you are seeing for your shoulder pain, contact our team at Arrow Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation for a consultation and to receive a personalized treatment plan to help you toward pain relief.

The three common methods of nonsurgical shoulder pain treatment include:

  • Heat and Ice – Some patients might find that a regimen of applying heat and ice to the area may be very helpful when attempting to find relief from shoulder pain. Ice should reduce swelling to the painful area and numb the pain, while the heat should loosen the muscles and reduce the pressure on the pinched nerve that is causing you pain.
  • Anti-inflammatory Medication – For some patients, anti-inflammatory medication may be a solution for pain relief. Many anti-inflammatory medications can be found over-the-counter, however, there are stronger medications that your doctor may choose to prescribe to you, depending on your specific condition. Consult with your doctor before taking any new medications.
  • Physical Therapy – When heat and ice are not enough, physical therapy may be able to help restore the strength and mobility in your shoulder. A physical therapist can work with you to create a customized plan that may reduce your chronic pain through various exercises, massage therapy, or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.

For many patients, relief from chronic shoulder pain can be found after several months of a personalized nonsurgical treatment plan, which often includes a combination of the treatment methods mentioned above. You should always consult your doctor before beginning or changing any treatment method or medication related to your shoulder pain in order to avoid injury.
