Do I really need surgery to treat my shoulder pain? The short answer is, “not always”. Although in some cases of severe injury and damage surgery is unavoidable, the huge majority of cases of shoulder pain are for often trivial reasons which are easily fixed at home.
I hurt my shoulder a while ago, and even after enduring months of constant shoulder pain, I’ve successfully treated it at home without any special equipment – just a few simple techniques and the pain disappeared.
Some cases where you might need surgery: very severe impingement, separated acromio-clavicular (AC) joint, severe full thickness rotator cuff tears, broken bones and drastic dislocations.
But as I said before, the chances of you having such a serious injury is very small. If you did have something like that, it is likely you’d know about it already because you would’ve been to hospital and had it diagnosed as such.
You don’t have to have surgery, but it’s always wise to check with your doctor and get his or her professional medical opinion.
For general shoulder pain caused by minor things such as – rotator cuff strains or micro-tears, muscle imbalances, poor posture, minor impingement, muscular strains, or just general aches and pains in the shoulder joint, you can do something about it at home.
Physiotherapy is the answer to most shoulder pain. Most professional physios will charge $100 or more per hour of treatment, but if you could learn a few simple stretches and techniques to do at home, and spend a few minutes every day doing them, there’s a strong chance you can beat your shoulder pain.
That’s what I did. I researched shoulder injuries on the internet, in the library, and by talking to past sufferers and medical professionals, and I discovered a few techniques which I put to good use and cured my own shoulder pain in a few weeks.
I wrote a book about my experiences with shoulder pain, and documented everything I learned about treating it with the special physiotherapy stretches and exercises I’d uncovered during my research.

Joe Brent is a former chronic should pain sufferer. He beat his shoulder pain for good without surgery and completely rehabilitated himself from the comfort of his own home.
When Joe injured his shoulder from a combination of working out incorrectly and bad posture, he spent hours every day digging through medical and sports literature, talking to medical experts, professional athletes and anyone he could find that had any experience of shoulder and rotator cuff injuries. He realized that it was possible to skip the surgery and the physical therapy appointments and do all the stretches and exercises on his own.
In just a few weeks, Joe was able to heal his own shoulder pain. He wanted to share his successful experiences with others and show them how to quickly rehab their shoulder injuries and that’s how he came up with his shoulder pain relief guide called Shoulder Pain No More.
