Pain in shoulder?

What would be good to use on my shoulder? I have been having dull pains in my shoulder and down my back for the last couple days and was wondering what could be used to relieve the pain.

  • Check with your doctor. That kind and the area of pain could be something serious.

  • I have a very messed up shoulder... It will require surgery. But to eleviate the pain in the mean time I use a heating pad/hot bath.

  • Pain in the shoulder can also be as simple as a rib out of place - and really, that's what it sounds like, I get it all the time and it comes with other upper back pain. I suggest a chiropractor, with or without a massage first, and if it continues to trouble you (I'm talking weeks or more) see a doctor.

  • I really depend what's wrong. When my shoulder flairs up, ice and ibuprofen help the pain. Chewing gum helps too.

  • Why were the first two answer voted down, I was going to say something along those line as well. If you don't want the advise to see a doctor, get a few heating pads and take some pain killers along with a nice bath.

    I really would check with your doctor to make sure it isn't something more though. better safe than sorry and 6 feet under

  • Sound to me like a pinched nerve since the back is involved stretching and advil will help but if continues I would have it checked out for more serious problems.
