No it won't take a long time if you look after it properly early.
Like I said my pain started the first day of a tournament, and I played through it, in fact because of commitments I continued to play and coach causing a more serious injury, like everyone else here we have played through and with pain in this instance I wish I would have stopped right away. In fact I never really stopped going on court, I skipped a few tournaments, and didn't smash but I am not sure that is what my doctor meant by rest.

While waiting for the specialist, at the very least you should ice it and do weighted pendulum exercises. Each 3x per day 10 minutes each time.

Okay, here is the real reason my shoulder injury lasted so long, and was not diagnosed properly.
Powertrail, it is PG14, so I put it else where on the forum, be warned don't read it if you are easily offended.

^^ Are you sure about this? Swimming is one of the main sports with shoulder impingement syndrome, due to the very nature of excessive and forceful shoulder rotation. He's going to get worse if he follows your advice. " "

To OP, please follow and do those exercises on my thread to strengthen the posterior shoulder and scapular muscles. This will rebalance and recenter your shoulder joint so that it will function normally without pain.
Any sport or activities like ours with a lot of overhead throwing action will cause the shoulder joint to migrate forwards due to increased muscle tone in front...and this will cause shoulder problems if not corrected.
