Pain Management

If you have shoulder arthritis, you need a pain management strategy. There may be more options than you think!

Heat or ice therapy: Put a heat or ice pack on the area for 20-30 minutes. Repeat this 3 or 4 times a day, and your pain and inflammation should decrease.


"As a 96-year-old with an arthritic shoulder which on certain movements was causing me excruciating pain, I went to the Orthopedist. He said, " There is nothing for an orthopedist to do."

I then approached a practitioner who made no promises but commenced a course of treatments using the Niel Asher Technique. After a few treatments, the movement of my arm was freer and the pain had gone. Because of the arthritis, my shoulder will never be 100% again, but I can now live comfortably with it (experiencing only a mild ache from time to time) because I no longer suffer the extreme pain" - Jean Levin, June 2013
