Warmth helps pulled muscles. Have a warm bath then rest the pulled muscle for as long as you can. A heat treatment cream can also help ease the stiffness and pain. Stay out of any cold draughts or air. If the joint does become stiff move your shoulder a little every few hours.

Jells and creams with MSM have been very beneficial for myself, family and friends. Jells absorb the best we find. Creams have other helpful pain relievers added in.
