Treatment Options for Shoulder Pain

I.C.E. DOWN Ice Wraps

Shoulder pain can be acute or chronic. It may be the result of an injury, a health condition, or aging. Most shoulder pain can be treated without surgery, and without dangerous medications. I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps can help you get relief from shoulder pain.

Cold Therapy

Frozen shoulder is an inflammatory condition which causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder. A combination of reducing the inflammation and exercising the shoulder is the only effective treatment for frozen shoulder.

For shoulder injuries, cold therapy reduces the inflammation and the pain so that you can maintain mobility in your shoulder and perform rehabilitative exercise.

Cold therapy can also give you pain relief and keep you moving if your pain is caused by conditions such as arthritis.

Delivering cold to the shoulder area can be challenging. I.C.E. DOWN ice wraps for shoulder pain are designed to fit snugly and comfortably in place.

R.I.C.E. for Shoulder Pain

The first line of treatment for shoulder pain, whether it is caused by a known injury or the cause of the pain is unknown, is R.I.C.E. – rest, ice, compression, and elevation.

Nearly all causes of shoulder pain, including injuries and frozen shoulder, involve inflammation. Icing the shoulder brings down the inflammation and the pain. Bringing down the inflammation is important in any kind of injury, but because the tendons and muscles in the shoulder are surrounded by bone, bringing down the swelling is absolutely critical.

You should not rest the injury for too long, however. Prolonged immobilization of the shoulder can lead to frozen shoulder.

Exercise and Physical Therapy

Exercise and physical therapy serve multiple purposes in shoulder pain. You must get the shoulder moving to prevent frozen shoulder. Exercise restores your range of motion and builds strength in the area.

The exercise and physical therapy used to treat shoulder pain may involve learning new strategies to prevent making the existing injury worse.
