I recently had an acute shoulder injury, and I found Ibuprofen to be helpful to get me through competitive matches, but I don't plan to take it regularly once it starts to feel better.

Any thoughts?
Do something I don't do, REST. If it's "Acute", sanity would say rest, but you like me probably won't, if so just take the Ibuprophen, take Tylenol also, you'll survive.
