Answer

During the acute to subacute phases of shoulder impingement syndrome, a short course of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is appropriate as an adjunct to the therapy program and other treatment modalities because of their analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. Choices in this drug classification are extensive; only selected examples are discussed. Patient responses to different NSAIDs may vary. For information on the full array of NSAIDs, their dose, and their schedule, refer to the latest edition of the Physician's Desk Reference.
