    Hello all, I am curious what kind of injuries and pains people on this forum have related to archery and/or bow hunting. I have been doing some research and from the studies it looks like rotator cuff tendinitis is the most common (other than bruises on the forearms), though studies in archery...

    Hi all. So, I’m super new to archery (like just started Saturday) but I’ve already started experiencing some pain in my draw (right) hand. It’s only in my pointer finger on the side where my finger touches the arrow and slightly in the second joint. Should I be wearing a finger tab or glove...

  4. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Well after shooting for 1 1/2 hours yesterday I got home and laid down for a while then noticed a sharp pain in my right shoulder. It's only when I lift my right arm up towards the side... It's a sharp, stinging pain and I'm hoping that rest and some stretching will help me out. I'm also...

    Hi, I started shooting with a recurve bow four month ago. I shoot almost every day, but few weeks ago I had a strong pain at my shoulder at the lowest part of the deltoid beginning of bicep (sorry I don't know much about anatomy). When I draw the bow I don't feel any pain at all but when I...

    I've been having some real bad shoulder pain in my right shoulder (I'm a right handed shooter) when shooting lately. I shoot a Carbon Matrix G3 at 53 pounds and 26 inch draw using a Stan Sable back tension. It really only seems to bother me as I'm drawing back. I take ibuprofen for pain and...

    Hello All, I am a newbie that is suffering with pain in my bow arm deltoid. I am shooting a 45# longbow. The pain is sharp and intense in the middle part of my deltoid. It occurs when I am at full draw. Yesterday it was so intense, on the first draw, I had to quit. The pain lasts about an...

    I'm an archery newbie and I have shot just a few hundred arrows so far and the biggest problem is that my shoulder starts aching. The "weird" thing is that its the shoulder on which I hold the bow in. It feels like joint pain. The joint doesn't really hurt when shooting or drawing the bow...

    Hi I'm new to archery talk and only been shooting seriously about 6 months or so. I shot when I was a kid but then got into speed skating. I have since found out I have Crohn's disease and had to have spine surgery about 4 years ago due to all the training and competition while I didn't know I...
  11. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I know a couple people have mentioned shoulder issues, but I seem to have a conundrum. I think I might be double jointed in my drawing shoulder, because it feels like it slips either in or out of place every time I draw back, and it starts to hurt after a while. Anyone have this problem/have any...
