My left shoulder was strained by repeated shooting of 60 pound bow. I feel a bit of pain whenever i try to lift anything with my left hand. But it's been few days and I'm feeling anxious if i don't shoot my bow at least once a day. So I took my camera tripod, adjust it's height, and then i use it to support the bow when I'm shooting.

I placed the bow, specifically the root of the limb, on top of the tripod and shoot away. At least it took away the need of my hand to support the bow weight. It ease my left shoulder somewhat.

So i want to ask here will shooting like this will have a negative effect on my bow?

Keep shooting with a bad shoulder and you will permanently damage it to the point you'll never shoot a bow again.

Your Doc can't possibly be telling you it's ok to keep shooting. If you haven't been checked out, you need to be.

Don't play with shoulder injuries. It's too easy to do permanent damage.
