Yes, it is an NSAID(Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and it does reduce inflammation, analgesic effects of it will do help you in abating the shoulder pains.

You do take other like Paracetamol, Ibuprofen also which can help you in relieving your pains. But do not take more of tablets without a prescription.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
