Could be tight/cramped rotator cuff muscles or rhomboids.

Massage, looking for hard lumps of tissue (feeling like a rubber cable). If you find them, massage deep and with lots of pressure. Yes, it will hurt.

See for more info about how and why to massage.

Use a wall hook (see for easier massage.

See,,,, and for anatomy and likely spots.

You can massage the subscapularis by sitting down, letting the affected arm hang down, inserting the other hand into the armpit and pressing the fingertips upward, inward, and slightly back.

Good luck, and fast recovery,
