If the shoulder pain is mild, it can be treated with over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen, ibuprofen, and naproxen. Avoid using your shoulder in ways that cause additional pain or worsen the pain. Applying an ice pack to the painful area every 15-20 minutes can also relieve your shoulder pain.
If your shoulder pain isn’t mild, come see the highly respected doctors at Gardner to take a look at your treatment options. These could involve anything from the use of a shoulder brace, compression device, or wrap, all the way to surgical options. Whatever the cause of your shoulder pain, Gardner Orthopedics works with you to find relief.
