The shoulder is an important body part with a wide range of motion. When you injure this area during sport, manual labor, or repetitive movement, it would affect the ability to move freely. Even worse, it would lead to a lot of discomfort and pain. Shoulder pain is a quite common health issue that may affect anyone. The condition would involve the tendons, nerves, muscles, ligaments, or cartilage. Below are some effective shoulder pain treatments that you may try.

Shoulder Stretching

When shoulder pain is achy and does not cause a shooting, stabbing, or sharp sensation, a muscle strain may be the cause. In this case, you would do some light shoulder stretches to alleviate muscle tension, improve flexibility, and promote blood flow. Try to hold stretches for around 30 seconds and do them several times during the day. [1]
