Anti Inflammatory Creams for Rotator Cuff Injury and Shoulder Pain

anti inflammatory creams rotator cuff I have to get something off my chest today!  I have a problem with rotator cuff  and shoulder pain sufferers who try to repair and cure their injured rotator cuff by simply applying topical anti-inflammatory creams to their shoulder.

Here’s Why…

When you take the risk of applying topical anti-inflammatory creams to your rotator cuff and skin, it can basically be the same as drinking the cream in liquid form or taking it internally as a pill or capsule.  This is not your best option for treating rotator cuff injuries.

You see the skin is a permeable membrane which means what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your muscles and tissues.

Pain relief creams are very popular today and are easily accessible without a prescription as you can access them over the counter or purchase them online via the internet but…

The danger is that people tend to apply these anti-inflammatory creams in excess which can be LETHAL in some cases!

Two recent deaths were reported as a direct result of using too much anti-inflammatory cream. One reported case was a high school track star in New York who applied the topical cream before a race. The second death reported was a woman who applied an anti-inflammatory cream to her skin before laser hair removal and skin treatments.

The active ingredients in the majority of these creams are lidocaine, tetracaine, benzocaine or prilocaine.  These ingredients are responsible for the numbing effect that you get when you apply it directly to your skin.  Most people choose to apply these creams in the comfort and convienence of their own home and this is when things can go all wrong!

These creams are only meant to be applied by a medical professional and for very short term use. In the case of a rotator cuff tear, I recommend you don’t apply the topical creams at all.

All you are doing is masking the pain with an anti-inflammatory cream and not getting to the root cause of your rotator cuff and shoulder pain. How is a topical cream supposed to treat, heel and cure a torn tendon and muscle tissue?

There are numerous of these dangerous products on the market and in my opinion you are wasting your money if you think this is how you can eliminate your rotator cuff injury and repair your torn rotator cuff for good.

I know how frustrating it is to try and get a good nights sleep every night when you are suffering from a rotator cuff injury.  Sometimes you want a quick fix to stop shoulder pain at night, so your desperation gets the best of you and you reach for some messy anti-inflammatory cream – even if the pain relief is only 2 minutes.

The decision to use these creams is entirely up to you, the sufferer but…

I thought it was important to share with you the potential dangers and risks of using these topical anti-inflammatory creams because at the end of the day, your health and well being is priority number one!

But if you are completely fed up with your nagging and stubborn rotator cuff and shoulder pain and want to learn 4 simple, step-by-step techniques that uses an instructional approach (with Videos & DVD Tutorials) from the comfort of your own home…

    I totally agree with your opinion on the pain creme. This is just a temporary masking of the problem. I am not sure if this is the right place to contact or not but I have a full width/full depth tear with retraction of supraspinatus tendon. There are two more tendons 2/3 torn. I am on a list for surgery and I’ve seen 2 physio therapists that pretty much say I need surgery. In my case do you believe your program would work or should I just wait to use it after surgery for recovery and rebuilding?
