Response to Shoulder problems.
My lower back has been bothering me for years, and occasionally a spot in between my shoulder blades REALLY gets my attention at times.
I switch back and forth between PCP and Piston and for the last year or so have been shooting my 12 fpe D54. It has a greatly reduced cocking (weight) cycle, so not so bad on my shoulder.....the one that I used to shoot archery with, but no longer.
With the prompting of slightly accented bloke that sorta sounds like a small lizard, I have been seeing a chiropractor to try to alleviate much of the back pain. It will be an ongoing challenge, but I don't want to give up shooting field target; too much fun with a whole lotta good friends.
So, between the gym and the chiropractor (BTW, she is REALLY good looking!), heat applications, and the occasional ibuprofen.....and rest (mercifully, I am retired), I will soldier on. I have learned to say NO when more than the normal amount of people ask for help, which is frequent. I have learned that I am not 35 anymore. My mind thinks I am, but my body rebels.
Hang in there, Scott. I will see you in August regardless.
