 Thanks, Thomas.  I have a good list of PT exercises.  What I'm wondering is whether others have advice about how long, how often, and using heat, ice and anti-inflammatories in the best combination for steady progress.

I'm ususally very sore on the day after I do my exercises and I'm not sure whether to push through that or not.  So far I haven't.

 Physical therapy can be very beneficial at this stage. Some exercises that can help include external rotation, crossover arm stretch and forward flexion.

 I am really feeling out of the woods these days with my left FS (dominant side) which started in  August of last year.

I have consistently less pain, and ever so slowly my ROM is increasing. I'm ready to apply myself to really increasing my ROM.

I have a long list of exercises and right now I'm doing a combination of strengthening (with theraband and then with light weights) and stretching.

I'm experimenting with using ice, heat and ibuprofin as I start really working that shoulder joint.  Does anyone have advice of what worked best for them in this stage?

I have appreciated this forum so much at each step along the way!
