What’s the Best Way to Treat a Stiff Shoulder?

Imagine this: you wake up after a long day in the garden and you can barely move your shoulder. The stiffness is so unbearable that you’d rather remain in the same position than risk moving.

While a stiff shoulder can be extremely uncomfortable, there are steps you can take to slowly regain range of motion. Here are some ideas to consider:

·      Ice therapy: if you’re contending with swelling, place ice on your shoulder three to four times per day for 15 or 20 minutes at a time. This will reduce swelling and some of your discomfort.

·      Physical therapy: if your shoulder doesn’t heal on its own over the course of five to seven days, consult with your doctor and learn more about physical therapy. This may be just what you need to improve range of motion and strengthen your shoulder.

·      Massage therapy: not only does it feel good, but it can also promote faster healing by increasing blood flow to the injured area. You don’t want to jump into massage therapy too quickly, as you may not be ready for it, but after a few days it’s an idea to consider.

A stiff shoulder can be painful and uncomfortable, but it’s nice to know there are several ways to treat this injury. By experimenting with the ideas above, you’ll feel better in no time at all.
