Sorry to hear about this

Yes you should apply heat packs on the shoulder area. This can be done three to four time daily for 10-15 minutes. In the meanwhile continue with advil . You should feel better in a few days time. It is possible that after lifting the heavy bag for long duration there is ache and soreness in your muscle and it should be fine in few days

Good luck
