Help With Injured Shoulder

hurt my shoulder not sure how i did it. i have went to the dr. and they tell me that it is just a sprain. how long should i wait and is there anything i can do to speed the recovery and to prevent this from happening again thanks

There have been quite a few posts on shoulder injuries on these forums - probably because they are so common.

I suffered through shoulder problems for years and, to be honest, there is no real trick to the healing process other than to give the shoulder a break. Don’t do anything that even remotely uses the shoulder for a couple weeks. This sucks, but it’s the best way to keep an isolated injury from haunting you the rest of your life.

I used to actually wear a sling - not because I needed to per say, but because it reminded me to keep my shoulder completely immobile during the day.
