    Yeah, no offense, but I think I will take it up with my doctor and a physical therapist.

    Ah, drowning is demonized by the mainstream media. It's just water's way of getting closer. :p

    yea do that and you'll find yourself doing exercises to improve mobility that causes discomfort,as it's that or surgery and that, it's not a surprise that using full range of motion is unpleasant if it's been years since you have done so,

    the original injury will have long since healed , the issue now is lack of circulations and wasted muscles, there's only one thing worse for a joint than moving it and that not moving it

    I expect discomfort. I can deal with discomfort. Heck, I can deal with pain. I've dealt with my fair share over the years. If my doctor and a PT say that the sensations I am experiencing now are also normal during rehab, I'll let you know. I have a suspicion they are not. But, heck, what do I know?

    For most shoulder injuries, swimming is one of the worst things for you.

    I’ve been an athletic trainer (sports medicine) going on 18 years now. It’s good at the tail-end of rehab and for maintenance, but IMO that’s about it.

    Freestyle, backstroke and butterfly more so than other strokes. Then again, what’s really left?
