In brief: Tricky

The shoulder is an incredible joint.
However, with injury, we try to stop moving it. Thus, it has a tendency to stiffen up and make movement painful. It is often difficult to judge if it is the injury or the lack of movement that is more painful. Talk to your doctor and therapist and they will direct you to either push through, or rest.
