Default Question about NSAID

I had a shoulder MRI... Low grade tear of spurpinatus tendon..with resultant mild to moderate bursitis. Ortho recommended PT, NSAID..not surgery...Gave me a cortisone injection.
He didn't specify how much/often to take the ibuprofen...said it would depend on pain...
I do know that NSAIDs also reduce imflammation... So I wonder if any of you have taken 800 mg prescrip ibu 2-3 times for a similar imflammation situation.

thank you,
ken
