How to Relieve Frozen Shoulder Pain

The exact cause of frozen shoulder is unknown, but there are way to reduce frozen shoulder pain. One of the best ways to ease the pain of a frozen shoulder is ice.

Ice can reduce inflammation, relax the muscle, and increase mobility.  Just grab a Ziploc bag and fill it with ice, a pack of frozen vegetables, or an ice pack and place it directly where you ache.  A useful tip is to wrap the ice in a cloth.

Get the ice situated and try not to move for 10 minutes as the ice massages your frozen shoulder.  It is best to do this at least twice a day, but it can be done every time you feel your pain peak.  It is a healthy way to minimize pain, and it gives you a way to increase shoulder mobility.

After the ice has been applied, try to stretch the shoulder or do shoulder exercises, because your arm has been numbed and the pain will be reduced.  You will still be working out your muscle, and in many cases you will be given a chance to reach further because your pain has been minimized.  Also, apply ice directly before bedtime to ensure a good night’s sleep.
