As I got older, I noticed that my body seems to experience aches and pains on a whim.
For example, lifting a book or a grocery bag can lead to serious shoulder pain.
Though the pain eventually goes away, I’ve had to come up with a list of remedies that I can use in the comfort of my own home.
Today, I would like to share these remedies for shoulder pain and common injuries!
*The moment your shoulder starts hurting, make sure you rest it.
This may not always be possible, so bandage your shoulder in place using elastic bandages.
Try using muscle cream on your shoulder before bandaging for maximum effect.
*Use ice to help keep the swelling down and to constrict the blood vessels.
For the first day, make sure to keep the ice on for about 15 minutes every hour.
*Make sure that your shoulder pain isn’t caused by something more serious.
If the pain persists for more than a day or two, visit your doctor as an x-ray may be required.
Oftentimes, I use aspirin to help with the pain, and it does.
However, make sure that your shoulder pain isn’t the result of something more serious before attempting home remedies.
