Something like that could help, but the best thing is going to be time off. That coupled with not starting back to soon and rehabing it correctly (bands, stretching, etc).
Also you could take ibuprofin or naproxen (Advil, Motrin, Aleve). You can put an ice pack on it for 20 minutes every couple hours or so as well.

Another lesson learned though.

Ive had quite a few shoulder problems in the past also. I usually jump on some animal flex and switch most of my presses to the smith machine. Not needing to balance the weight allows me to still work out, just less stress on the joints.
Time off as stated always works

4 caps (3.2g) of cissus a good dose per day or should i up it past that? I bought 2 bottles but if it's effective i have no problem picking up another.

Cissus rx is money.
I think the bottle says load it @ 2pills with each meal for a week or so, then 3 am 2 pm. I do 2/2 and like it there.
How did you hurt your shoulder?

Friendly competition lol.
I hurt myself maxing out in high school, i just pushed my chest workout too hard with my wo partner.

Cissus I think is what made my rotator cuff able to pretend it wasnt hurt...its still sore now but I can lift more weight than I did when I hurt it a week ago lol o.O

^ damn good article!
Question though, and sorry for the threadjack,
It says arms fully relaxed, when I stand up and relax my arms, they are slightly bent, maybe 7-10 degrees, and it looks like I would totally fail the flashlight test, but if I straighten my arms to my sides, my palms exactly face eachother. But straightening your arms contracts your triceps, so I am assmuming straight is not relaxed?

I believe relaxed they will be slightly bent. you can blame all the bicep curls for that. :P I think i made it 2-3ft with that test Biggest thing is make sure you are pinching your shoulder blades together when you bench.

I know its not what you want to hear, the best thing is time off.
if it is very serious and has been bugging you for a while get an MRI to see exactly what you are dealing with. then take a month off and do what it takes to get it better(cortisone shot, prednisone maybe, and physical therapy)
all lifting will do is make it worse, and in the long run you can progress in heavier weights instead of that shoulder holding you back all the time

I'd recommend going with the bulk SuperCissus RX. I just put a tsp toward the back of my tongue and wash it down with water 2-3 times ed. I'm still recovering from a shoulder surgery I had back in December, and I started taking this stuff a couple of months ago. There is definitely a noticeable improvement with my shoulder. I wouldn't say its a miracle drug, but it does help, and I'll probably keep taking it.

I got my Animal flex in the mail, and every one of the Gel Caps was busted in the packs.
I didn't buy it from Nutra Planet but i can't really return it because i'm in afghanistan anyways. The product was delievered in perfect condition but when i peeled the metal lid off the tub i found out the product was ruined.
