About this Shoulder and Neck Pain Relief booklet:
Neck and shoulder pains can be classified in several different ways. Some people get neck pain only or shoulder pain only, while others get pain in both areas.
That’s why we put together this special 28-page booklet. It’s easy to scan the seven chapters. It begins with pain management. Then it covers common shoulder pain conditions and when to call your doctor. Also, we cover treatment basics and medications. Finally, we wrap up with two quick chapters on pain assessment and MRIs.
Everything you need to know when you call your doctor!
When you are not sure about the cause of your shoulder pain, or if you don’t know the specific treatment required for your condition, you should get medical attention. Treatment of these conditions needs to be aimed at the specific cause of your problem. This booklet covers the eight signs to look for before calling your doctor.
The earlier you seek treatment, the better, so don’t put off an appointment with your doctor or physiotherapist!
Yours in Health,
