Scapula humerus periarthritis - Rotator cuff tenosyn | Self-healing

In case shoulder ache has been caused by a minor trauma and the rotator cuff hasn’t experienced a lesion, it is recommended to: rest the shoulder for some days (4 to 7), avoiding those movements that increase ache and weightlifting until symptoms start easing.

During this first phase it is useful to apply ice (15-20 minutes every 2 hours) which helps decreasing the inflammation. When the inflammation has improved, after 2-3 days, some hot applications (20 minutes each) may be attempted.

Articular traumas need a specialist approach to determine the best diagnostic-therapy road to follow.
The first corrective cure in cases of acute trauma is the P.R.I.C.E. protocol (Protection, Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) based on the application of an orthosis for immobilisation, limb elevation and rest, and finally the use of ice 3-4 times a day for approximately 20 minutes. Applying this protocol quickly helps reduce local swelling and haemorrage. After this, it is the specialist who indicates the most suitable treatment.
