I have been suffering from right shoulder & arm pain from last three months. I consulted with an orthopedist and told me it's frozen shoulder. Please advice and tell me the remedy of it. I also ride motorcycle 60 kms daily.
Shoulder pain is not a disease or condition in itself, but could be indicative of some kind of injury, strain or an ailment. Whether you workout in a gym lifting weights, or you spend most of your day in front of a computer, you would probably experience shoulder pain at some point of time. Shoulder pain refers to any pain that occurs in and around the shoulder area. The pain may originate from the shoulder joint itself or from the muscles, tendons and ligaments that surround the joint. In most cases, shoulder pain worsens with any activity or movement that involves use of the shoulder, arm or neck. The treatment for shoulder pain will vary depending on the cause. The doctor will evaluate the condition based on the individualÂs medical history and physical examination.
Epsom salt can give you relief from shoulder pain as it improves the blood circulation and release the stress not only from your shoulder but also from the whole body. Fill you bathtub with lukewarm water. Pour two cups of Epsom salt in it. Mix thoroughly so that the salt gets dissolved in water properly. Now, sit in this water with your shoulders submerged for 20-25 minutes. Repeat it thrice a week to get better results.
Alternatively, you can soak a towel in warm water mixed with Epsom salt. Put this towel on your shoulder to treat shoulder pain.
Add a tsp of turmeric powder in a cup of milk and stir well. Boil this milk and add honey to sweeten it. Drink it two times a day to aid the healing process.
Or, you can also apply the paste of turmeric and olive oil to your shoulder to get relief from the pain.
Note: Donât consume too much of turmeric, if you are taking blood thinning medicines
Olive oil can provide relief from shoulder pain. It improves the blood circulation and reduces stiffness and swelling. Heat some olive oil for a few seconds and allow it to cool. Ask someone to massage it on your shoulder. Apply pressure and squeeze the shoulder muscles well to release the stress. Do it for ten minutes. Repeat it a few times daily to get relief from the pain.
Hot water compress can help heal the inflammation and swelling in the sore muscles of your shoulder. Fill a hot water bag and place it on the shoulder while lying down comfortably on the bed. Keep it there for 10-15 minutes. Do it few times in a day to get complete relief.
Or, you can also take a warm water shower for 5-10 minutes daily. Stand still for this duration. Do it twice daily to get better results.
Note: Make sure that water is not too hot to burn your skin.
A cold compress helps relieve the pain as it numbs the affected area. Thus, reduces pain and inflammation. Place some ice cubes in a plastic bag and wrap it in a thin towel. Put it on the aching shoulder for 10-15 minutes. Do it 2-3 times a day to relieve the pain.
Alternatively, use a towel soaked in cold water to relax the sore muscles. It will help treat the pain.
Note: Do not put ice cubes directly on your skin as it may cause frostbite.
Definitely will help. It has three stages, freezing, frozen and thawing. It takes time to heal. You will need to do few exercise, anti inflammatory drugs and warm compresses. Also you would need few injections. For full treatment protocol you can consult me in private.
