  • Bursitis in my right shoulder

    I have devleoped mild bursitis in my right shoulder, and get some mild pain and discomfort when drawing my bow. (PSE Stinger compound bow, currently running at 43lb) Any hints on management, or exercise and treatment to overcome this troublesome problem?

    Go see a doctor. Rest. And go see a doctor.
    With my bursitis I found that Traumeel cream helped to bring the inflammation down. And did I mention to go see a doctor?

      Scan shows ligament wear and tear, with swelling of the bursa, perhaps contributed to by having too many birthdays. Treament has been contisone shot, rest, physio, and I'll keep on with than until I see some improvement. "You must be a patient patient grasshopper....."

        One thing to watch is your draw technique. Most people draw level with their shoulders, usually to stop sky drawing, however this puts a heap of pressure on the shoulder joint, tendons and bursa. The key is to start with your release hand above your eye level and then drawback and downwards.
        This video is great for showing it.

          Thanks Marcus. Once the shoulder settles down, I'll drop my poundage and give it a try.

            Hi Pete, hope you have a speedy return to shooting arrows. I have the same problem, inflammation in the bursa due to small tear in the superatnaetus tendon. Asyou said. Too many birthdays and probably to high a bow weight, tho i didn't feel i was over bowed. I was drawing my bow level like Marcus has said,had no idea it was no good for shoulder.
            It's been 4 month's no shooting, physio has helped but range of motion still poor. Physio said it was also partially frozen.
            Anyway, will have hydro-dilation in new year if no improvement.
