  1. Shoulder Pain after Shooting

    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...

    General Archery Discussion
    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...
  3. Shoulder Pain

    General Archery Discussion
    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...

    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.

  8. Shoulder issues, suggestions?

    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...
