I'm just curious more than anything, I suffered from the same thing a few years back and it took ages of rest to get it back to normal. I've been able to read numerous articles on the explanations of what Roddick felt, but nothing of the specific measures they took for recovery.

I'm assuming that an athlete in his position goes with the more extreme measures immediately to reduce healing time and/or the immediate rest following the match it flared up in added to a more fruitful recovery but would love to find out what measures they took.

Not aware of a pinched nerve issue but I did come across the following Sports Medicine Journal article about Andys' shoulder from a few years ago:
