Time for exercise ! The usual of course with rubber bands, gym equipment, the Montana Mauler. I've been working on what I believe are rotator cuff balance exercises.
Using wrist grips and walking, the arms are rotated in the usual ex positions, canoe and yak positions, Spangler positions where head is opposite the usual position during arm movements, counter rotating arm movements (leading to the idea nervous enervation for paddle/balance is begun and enhanced), rotating wrist and forearm while constantly gripping, arm movements eg sweeps while crouched or doubled over, super stretch out movements while gripping, careful rep movements when you discover the tendons and ligaments are not moving smoothly over bone surfaces-I have one from throwing curveballs- and off course the most important reach behind the shoulder in various positions with both arms then moving forward as high and low paddling styles. Then bracing....Then….
Graduate to poundage on the wrists with arm weights.
The approach gathers strength and lubricity in the shoulder/arm linkage. Using ear plugs, you may hear the abrading connections. When finding a weak spot, check for solutions in EXRX online.
