How To Fix The Most Common Shoulder Problem

If you’ve been battling shoulder problems for weeks (or months), praying that it will just go away on it's own, or you’re sick of being told to rest and take pain medication…

And you’re fed up with those agonizing shooting pains whenever you are trying to lift things, playing with you kids or the grandchildren or exercising.

This blog is for YOU!

In clinic, the most common shoulder problem would be a rotator cuff injury. These injuries are usually caused by trauma incidents such as a road traffic accident or a fall.

Another common cause due to the increase of people working from home who have sat in a slouched position for so long or in a job (like teaching) where you are constantly lifting your arm up and writing. This places repetitive strain on the muscles and tendons within the shoulder region.

Do I Have A Rotator Cuff Injury?

If you have shoulder pain, and you think it could be related to a rotator cuff injury, the most common symptoms are if the pain occurs when the arm is raised above shoulder height (either in front of you, or to the side).

Another time that a rotator cuff injury will create pain is if you are reaching behind you. 

Discomfort can also be felt when pouring something or raising your arm to the side of your body when getting dressed.

These shoulder positions will be painful as the tendons in the shoulder are being pinched by the joint, and this causes discomfort, and could lead to fraying or tearing of the musculature of the shoulder joint.

Other symptoms could be difficulty moving, weakness in the shoulder, and an increasing pain when laying on the affected shoulder.

A Natural Way To Ease Shoulder Pain

A lot of patients want to ease shoulder pain WITHOUT painkillers because they are concerned about the impact of strong painkillers on their health.

Using an ice pack (or a bag of frozen vegetables) is an effective, and natural way to ease shoulder pain.

If you try this, make sure to wrap the ice pack in a towel so it’s not in direct contact with your skin.

You can do this for up to 15 minutes at a time, and it can be done several times a day. A good rule of thumb is to allow the area to warm up and return to normal temperature before applying another ice pack.
