Shoulder pain or frozen shoulder problems include the following, all of which can be treated with Topical Solutions:
Frozen Shoulder also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by stiffness and pain in
your shoulder joint. In one stage of the disorder the freezing stage your shoulder's range of motion is
notably reduced as in the picture above. Frozen shoulder usually affects one shoulder, although some people may develop it in
Dislocation The shoulder joint is the most frequently dislocated major joint of the body - often caused
by a significant force that separates the shoulder joint's ball (the top rounded portion of the upper arm
bone, or humerus) away from the joint's socket (glenoid).
Separation The shoulder becomes separated when the ligaments attached to the collarbone (clavicle)
are torn, or partially torn, away from the shoulder blade (scapula). Shoulder separation may be caused
by a sudden, forceful blow to the shoulder, or as a result of a fall.
Bursitis Bursitis often occurs when tendonitis and impingement syndrome cause inflammation of the
bursa sacs that protect the shoulder.
Impingement Syndrome Impingement syndrome is caused by the excessive squeezing or rubbing of the
rotator cuff and shoulder blade. The pain associated with the syndrome is a result of an inflamed bursa
(lubricating sac) over the rotator cuff, and/or inflammation of the rotator cuff tendons, and/or calcium
deposits in tendons due to wear and tear. Shoulder impingement syndrome can lead to a torn rotator cuff.
Tendonitis Tendonitis of the shoulder is caused when the rotator cuff and/or biceps tendon become
inflamed, usually as a result of being pinched by surrounding structures. The injury may vary from mild
inflammation to involvement of most of the rotator cuff. When the rotator cuff tendon becomes inflamed
and thickened, it may become trapped under the acromion.
Rotator Cuff Tear A rotator cuff tear involves one or more rotator cuff tendons becoming inflamed from
overuse, aging, a fall on an outstretched hand, or a collision.
Adhesive Capsulitis (frozen shoulder) Frozen shoulder is a severely restrictive condition frequently
caused by injury that, in turn, leads to lack of use due to pain. Intermittent periods of use may cause
inflammation and adhesions to grow between the joint surfaces, thus restricting motion. There is also a
lack of synovial fluid to lubricate the gap between the arm bone and socket that normally helps the
shoulder joint to move. This restricted space between the capsule and ball of the humerus distinguishes
adhesive capsulitis from the less complicated condition known as stiff shoulder.
Fracture A fracture is a partial or total crack or break through a bone that usually occurs due to a
Shoulder injuries can be a difficult area to treat even by the best of physicians and specialists. Specific treatment of
shoulder pain problems will be determined by a physician, preferably a specialist preferably one who deals
with sports injuries. Most have seen everything under the sun when it comes to injuries to the shoulder and with
a myriad of frozen shoulder case. How he/she deals with your shoulder pain or frozen shoulder will depend on...
Your age, overall health, and medical history
Extent of your shoulder pain or frozen shoulder condition
Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies for your shoulder
Expectations for the course of your shoulder condition
Your opinion or preference for teatment regimens to provide shoulder pain relief or frozen shoulder conditions
Shoulder Pain Injuries Treatment may include:
Until you can meet with a physician or specialist, take the following precautions for shoulder injuries...
Rest Avoid strenuous activity and any motion that causes shoulder pain. In some cases a shoulder sling is helpful
to rest fatigued muscles and inflamed tendons until you see a doctor.
Ice and Heat Putting ice on your shoulder for 15 to 20 minutes at a time may help reduce inflammation
and shoulder pain. After about two to three days, when the shoulder pain and inflammation have improved, hot packs or
heating pads may help relax tightened and sore shoulder muscles. Limit heat applications to 20 minutes per day.
Oral Medicines Anti-inflammatory medicines such as Motrin®, Feldene®, Voltaren®, Naprosyn®,
or aspirin may help reduce shoulder pain due to inflammation.
PAIN RELIEF Note the green arrows pointing to the two major nerves running through the shoulder...the
Median and the Ulnar nerves. Apply PAIN RELIEF to the area on the shoulder indicated at the end of the
GREEN lines. You may feel pain down your arm in a number of areas, but the point of application is where
the nerve is being impinged in the shoulder joints as shown.
Apply PAIN RELIEF to a spot about the size of the cup palm of your hand, let it dry and apply a heat
compress or pad over the area as indicated on the chart...wait up to 15 minutes and if no relief, you missed
the spot on your shoulder where the nerve is being impinged...experiment until you find the right spot...waiting up to
15 minutes each time you try a different spot.
REMEMBER: Shoulder injuries and the associated shoulder pain could develop into frozen shoulder. Listen to your
body and make sure that if your shoulder pain persists you will seek professional medical help as soon as possible.
