After my shoulder injury, I would usually ahve gone to the doctor. He would have prescribed Ibuprofen, which reduces inflammation and pain.

The inflammation is there to increase blood flow to the damaged area and protect it from further damage, while the pain is an indicator of when not to train. What is the point of getting pain killers???

I stuck with Glucosamine, which is found in the body anyway and took it in high concentrations. I started taking it about 3 months ago (the injury happened 1 year ago) and my shoulder is fully repaired. I'd rather pay for something that actually repairs than get pain killers free off the NHS.
