Probably: This is good choice for patients with shoulder inflammation. Although I can't specifically comment on your case, I often will use celecoxib daily for 2-3 weeks to reduce inflammation. Icing and a shoulder rehabilitation program should be helpful as well. If I can be of further help, then join my care team at www.healthtap.com/dr-clarkeholmes
