    Currently stopped practicing and joined a gym for the same reason. I've had a lot of shoulder dislocations(around 10 in my life) and decided it was the best thing. When it recovers, I plan to continue training JJ.
    Continuing to practice with that problem will only worsen it. I suggest you also join a gym and ask for some professional help in the training.

    see what position do you sleep (avoid sleeping sideways with your injuried shoulder undr your body), avoid lifting wheight and see a doctor, these are no joke

    Fast none, but stop doing anything with that shoulder and rehab it with shoulder exercises. Enson should be able to hook you up with a rehab professional.

    From my experience it is best to avoid any training which involves the cuff and that includes sparing, rolling, lifting weights, etc. Give it 2-4 weeks to let it heal.

    Rotator cuffs are a bitch. I hurt mine doing the most innocuous roll in BJJ. Wasn't that bad just couldnt lift any weight on it and a little less range of movement. However 3 months on its exactly the same, ive tried all the rehab on it but it hasn't made any difference.

    I assume they get better eventually but fuck, how long does it take?

    If you don't take care of it properly, it can permanently become injured and never heal.

    I dare say never if you do not treat it fast. I injured mine about a decade ago and it poped once in a while when least expected. But after starting grappling 3 years ago, it started poping more often. For that reason I decided to leave JJ for a while and enter a gym. I plan to go for a year then continue with JJ.

    They dont heal , plain and simple. If there is a tare, you have surgery and are out for about 6 months. If its just inflamed you take nsaid's or cortisone and rest, ice it then rehab it.
