How to Heal Impingement In The Shoulder

Step-by-step Instructions

Here is what you need to do...
Step 1

Whenever doing an exercise program or strenuous activity it is recommended to stretch.

Step 2

If pain begins and is very noticeable in the shoulder. Take 2-3 for ibuprofen (read directions on bottle). This is your new best friend for pain and reducing inflammation.

Step 3

Within the first 24 hours put ice on the shoulder for 20 minutes at a time. After 24 hours use the heating pad. The heat will help to reduce pain and quicken healing process.

Step 4

After using the heat pad or taking a warm shower, stretch or use a lacrosse ball. With the lacrosse/tennis ball take the ball and rub over the affected shoulder with some pressure this with help take away inflammation or alleviate pain.

Step 5

As a side note: Refrain from activities that involve continuous motion using the rotator cuff or deltoid(shoulder muscle). Also try to refrain from sudden movements raising the elbow above the shoulder.
