Deltoid Muscle
dlc315 posted:
I recently strained my right deltoid muscle. It is very painful, especially when lying down in bed. I'm taking an anti inflammatory during the day and vicodin at night. I am also icing it 2-3 times per day. Is there anything else I can do to relieve the pain? I really do hate to take medications all the time.
