Most of us delay the treatment of the problem until the pain becomes unbearable and the movement becomes more severe. The range of solutions depends on the cause of the problem and its nature, and here is the place to emphasize the importance of accurate medical diagnosis.
Shoulder pain, for example, may result from a very wide variety of medical conditions, which must be distinguished. Shoulder pain resulting from neck problems will be treated differently from pain caused by inflammation in one of the tendons attached to the shoulder. Assuming that this is a particular sinus infection, of course we will strive to relieve the pain first. The traditional conservative treatment includes analgesics, cooling the place, and resting the muscle to which the tendon is connected.
