Ice Therapy for the Shoulder
These exercises should only be performed after evaluation by a qualified medical professional and under their instruction. Should you experience pain or discomfort while doing an exercise, stop immediately.
This is ice therapy you can do at home. You can use an ice gel pack, a freezer bag filled with ice, or a package of frozen peas or other frozen vegetables.
Sit comfortably in an upright position. Begin by placing a damp towel across the top of your shoulder. Then, place an ice pack over the damp towel, conforming the shape of the ice pack to the shape of your shoulder. Next, place a bath towel over your shoulder, covering everything. The cold therapy will now be evenly distributed across your shoulder.
You can use this ice pack for up to 20 minutes. Wait one hour before repeating.
