My Number 1 Tip For Stopping Shoulder Pain

I used to suffer from severe shoulder pain. You probably know what it’s like – stinging, nagging, sharp and sore, it is constantly on your mind throughout the day, and can keep you up all throughout the night, not letting you have a wink of sleep because it hurts too bad. 

After visiting the doctor, I was told I should rest, and take anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce swelling and numb my body to the pain. 

I thought that would work well, and for a few weeks it did. However, as soon as I stopped taking the drugs, the pain came right back. The shoulder pain came back because I hadn’t treated the cause and source of the pain. I’d just covered it up with pain blocking pills. If you don’t cure the cause of the pain, the pain (which is a symptom of the cause) will persist. Treating the source is absolutely essential to stopping shoulder pain. 

After much research, I discovered that physiotherapy is an excellent and effective treatment for shoulder pain. Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford a professional, since they can charge as much as $100 per hour, and pretty much every shoulder injury is going to require at least 5-10 hours of treatment over the course of a few weeks. So instead, I learned how to use physiotherapy myself. That might sound complicated, but it’s actually very easy. A few simple stretches and exercises at home. 

After putting them into practice for a few weeks, my shoulder pain had completely disappeared, and I could get back to normal life. So that’s my number one top tip, as a previous shoulder pain sufferer – learn about physiotherapy you can do on your own in your own home. It only takes a few minutes a day, doesn’t require any special equipment and is easy to do. And best of all, it’s very effective at treating shoulder pain.
