Mom uses a walker and has a torn Rotor cuff. Doctors won't give her prescription pain meds cause she has kidney disease. I think stage four. She also has congestive heart failure I believe. She takes blood pressure meds plus other meds.
The specialist said try physical therapy, a shot maybe later and other things. Last resort is surgery. Strong over counter pain pills does nothing. She has moist. heating pad. Tried icy hot twice. Just made pain worse. Prescription cream made her dizy.
