What are the treatments for arm pain?


There are several effective treatments for arm pain, some of which will work better in certain situations than others. These include:

At-Home Treatments, such as:

Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation: Commonly known as RICE therapy, this is the first-line treatment for almost all acute injuries. Resting the area prevents unnecessary strain or re-injury; applying ice reduces swelling and relieves pain; compression further reduces swelling and is often applied for several hours at a time, and elevating the injured area above the heart also works to minimize swelling and pain.

Over-The-Counter Pain-Relievers: Pain medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, are available at pharmacies and drug stores and can help reduce mild cases of pain; they also work to reduce inflammation.

Medical Treatments, such as:

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy is one of the most effective treatments for pain of all types, including arm pain. This therapy focuses on strengthening exercises to rebuild muscle as well as stretches to improve range of motion and mobility.

Cortisone Injections: Cortisone injections are a popular pain treatment and can provide instant relief in some cases. They typically include a steroid that works to relieve pain and reduce inflammation and can be effective for several months.
