Non-operative Shoulder Separation Treatment

  •  Ice -Is an important treatment of most acute soft tissue injuries.
  • Sling -Frequently, a sling is needed and helpful for the first few days after an injury. This helps to support the weight of the arm and to restrict motion. It is usually advised, however, to begin some motion exercises within a few days once the immediate pain has stopped.
  • Pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications-May be advised, either over-the-counter or by prescription.
  • Physical Therapy -You may require physical therapy, particularly once the immediate pain has stopped within a few days. The decision for this often is made during a follow-up visit.
