valerio10 daysfew days rest, then slowly running again. Still not perfect, but time will cure :-)details
ginger10 daysContinued light weights and ROM work, along with rest and easy swimming when it was painful.details
duxma10 daysI used Gavez gel, Diklofen gel and alcohol 70% 3 days in row, with covered arm. Reason was pushing too hard in gym.details
nmulder16 daysStength and flexibility in the joint returned very slowly. Was very careful not to re-injure it again during this time. Gym work and lots of stretching should help it recover quicker.details
riley16 daysJust a supraspinatus partial tear from awkward hard climbing, I should've known better. Rotator cuff exercises would help.details

mlakelly21 daysPhysical Therapy twice a week for 3 weeks. Cortisone pills for the bursitis. Kayaking in the Desert Winds race certainly caused it to flair up. Need to continue rolling out my shoulder blades and keep the rest of the back muscles loosened up and also strengthen them. Work back up to high mileage in the kayak. details

cbruski45 daysImpact injury, probably bruising and trauma to the bursa and barious ligaments and tendons. Resting it wasnparamount, with ongoing analgesics for the first week or so, then consistency with six standard physio exercises. Gradually amped up the weights on the exercises. Really reaped the benefits of increasing strength in the shoulder and back; doorway stretch REALLY important for this, too.details

Bigmac74 daysI stoped PT and it feels much better and I have full range of motion back. It still herts some in the AM if I slept on it. Looking back I think to much racquetball and a couple of bad MTB crashes didn't help. Not to mention being almost 43.details

kyntha403 daysI had surgery 3 months ago. I was surprised at how much pain and limited range of motion I experienced after. But now I feel so much better. I have an occasional stiffness or twang of stiff muscle going down the arm. But my rom is much improved. I did PT for 3 months and mostly just used my left arm for the first 2 months.
