Re: bursitis arthritis and rotor cuff

Voltaren gel has been a godsend when it comes to my bursitis/rotator cuff issues. I still get flare ups if I move the wrong way, put it through too much stress or sleep on it too often. Injections help greatly with the initial swelling, with the gel as needed to prevent a full-fledge lockup of my shoulder.

I hope you find relief from the pain!

Re: bursitis arthritis and rotor cuff

They sell Voltaren Gel over the counter in Canada for $15 no prescription needed. I sometimes get mine there and pray I can get it through customs in VT. Yesterday my PT put a steroid patch right on my rotator cuff and I wore it for 24 hours. The patches had a + and - pole and drove the steroid into the tissue and I got amazing relief.

No surgery. Anesthesia dangerous.
