Also known as frozen shoulder.
So after 6 Million dollars of physio, new tyres for the orthopedic surgeons lambo, and a MRI that was about the same GDP as a small African country ( small bit of mayo here) lots of $$$ bleeding here they tell me its not:
1 A Rotator cuff injury
2 No Cartridge damage
3 We don,t know what cause it but it may go away???????????????? WTF!!!!!!!!

Cant F%$#&%g paddle.......ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just sooking

So if you start feeling tightness in the shoulder don't ignore, it as this came on like full on wave. One day it hurt to raise my arms above my head and in about two weeks I could not move my arm above my shoulder.

To start it back to normal they gave this Hydo extension thing where they pump water and steroids into the shoulder joint. Not a very pleasant experience . Lots of @#@@#$$%%#@@!

So guys if you feel a bit of pain or tightness starting to happen get onto it quick as you can

Mine was neck related. Nothing to do with shoulder, worth exploring

I have had it in each shoulder - occurred abouted a year apart. About 15 years ago
Had guided cortisone shots and was given a specific set of stretches/exercises . About 3 month recovery for full movement.
Was told it does not occur twice in the one shoulder and that advice has been correct so far.
Do not know if 100% recovery as shoulders pretty stuffed anyway - hence a paddle boarder.
Best advice about shoulder recovery I received was do not push it - if it hurts - stop.

Just wait, and it will go away on its own, eventually. No-one knows what causes it, so no-one knows how to cure it.

I've had it a couple of times in the same shoulder so I'm not sure about that advice.

If you are a doctor, it is almost impossible to say to a patient "sorry, there is nothing we can do". But that sums up the truth of many situations that doctors face.

Good luck. IMO just get on with your life as best you can, stay healthy, and wait for it to go.

Same but mine was more like 25years ago, three cortisone injections did the trick

Same here.
Had it in both shoulders about 2 years apart.
Got better on its own after 6 - 8 months.
Full movement after about 12 months.
Cortisone injections helped.
No known cause in my case but some people are more at risk I was told.
Diabetics are at higher risk.
Hopefully you have a speedy recovery.
I was able to flat water paddle in the later stages even though I couldn't raise my arm above my shoulder.

Sup paddlers are more prone to over use injuries. Cross training is important see laird videos.
If soreness starts have a break. I like 1 day per hour of soreness rule. If it last 2 hours have 2 days off. !2 hours take 2 weeks off and cross train.
Yoga is good to start. Eat clean and protein rich.
Work on rest and relax.
