A shoulder sprain can cause pain, discomfort and swelling, all of which can make it difficult to live your day-to-day life.

If you suspect this injury, it’s important to seek a professional evaluation. This is the best way to pinpoint your injury and the severity, all with the idea of following the right treatment schedule.

There are multiple forms of treatment for a shoulder sprain, including:

·      Rest. It’s important to give your shoulder the rest it needs to heal. If you continue to use it, such as by lifting heavy items, it can worsen the injury and prolong healing time.

·      Anti-inflammatory drugs. For example, ibuprofen can help relieve pain and swelling. You don’t have to take ibuprofen every day, but just when you need some relief.

·      Sling. Depending on the severity, you may need to use a sling for a period of two to four weeks. This helps immobilize the area, thus giving it time to heal.

·      Ice. Early on, ice is one of the best ways to deal with any pain and swelling in the area. Using this for 10 to 15 minutes at a time can bring the relief you’re seeking.

Don’t assume that a shoulder sprain will heal itself, as it takes the proper treatment for this to happen. As you begin to feel better, you may also want to consider the benefits of massage. This can help loosen your muscles, promote blood flow, and of course, melt away your stress.
