Oh man, for the last couple years, my right shoulder has been giving me some grief. Threw a LOT of baseballs pitching (lots of curve balls, which I was told at the time will hurt your arm later in life, but, I never listened) in my younger day, and now, my right shoulder bugs me. I can't throw a ball 100 feet now without it hurting..........actually, I always know my shoulder is "there" when i pick stuff up. Starting to worry me a little.

What do u do to try and make your shoulder better?

Only two things will heal one's shoulder/rotator cuff: complete rest from sports/throwing or some serious anti-inflammatories. I blew up my rotator cuff by once playing a bunch of raquetball in one day & it still bothers me 20 years later when I play softball & try to throw long/hard.

you have to rest completely.
Then find yourself a shoulder horn and use it for exercises to build shoulder strength.
Stretching is also key, you have to get the muscles warm and blood flowin.

Having seen the video, BHO will not have this problem

Tore my rotator cuff back in '78 and my pitching career ended right then.

It still hurts to this day when I try to throw something.

I wore my shoulder(s) out from football. Had to get a steroid shot four years ago followed by complete rest. They got better, but I know it's only because I'm not poking the beehive anymore (throwing or hitting shit).

Catcher to college and football through college. Two shoulder surgeries and more to come. I played in a roy hobbs senior baseball legue the last two years and my throwdown is pretty weak ;-)

I pitched alot through high school and a little after and my right shoulder always hurt like hell. When I turned 23 or 24 I finally went and had it checked out. I have 2 or 3 tendons tore loose from my shoulder/rotator that connect to my back. Doc told me to give up throwing and just start DHing. He said that if I never threw a ball again it would not need any fixing surgically. Now I have a 8 year old and it seems all I do is throw with him comstantly. I will just suffer through it though.

Played HS Ball and then dislocated my right shoulder "horsing" around the squad bay. Yeah, it gives me trouble to this day.

I need to warm-up thoroughly or I am in pain. And even then there is discomfort if I throw much. At least I skipped football in school and am still able to walk.
