Shoulder Bursitis

I have recently come down with a mild case of bursitis in my right shoulder. The pain runs all the way down my elbow to my rith thumb. What a bitch! Right in the middle of my damn Mag-10 cycle. I’ve gained 12 lbs in two weeks and I’m getting stronger every day. Any therapy suggestions for the shoulder? I know that a lay-off is probably the best idea, but the thought of it grinds my ass right now. I’m currently icing it for 20 minutes after every training session, and taking extra time to stretch and warm up the muscles, but it really doesn’t help too much. Any suggestions to help me stay in the saddle would be appreciated.
