Shoulder problems
« on: March 13, 2006, 04:38:23 AM »
Hi everyone, long time no post...

So tennis season is here- and I was hitting last night with a team mate and after about 15minutes of ground strokes I started to get sharp pains in my right shoulder while hitting forehands. This isn't the first time either...

I'm wondering if anyone else has trouble like this, and how do you help prevent injury? I'm doing hot/cold, taking anti-inflamitory, but what can I do during match play to stop this from happening? I never thought I put a lot of stress on my shoulder- unless I am too far away from the ball, and reaching, while hitting a forehand. I also hit with a western grip, I have no idea if that hurts or helps....

Any comments?

Western grips tend to be bad on your body, as far as I know. That's why you see most older people using like eastern grips...less wear and tear.

I could be wrong tho...Scotty being the resident old fart of the board, he could probably help you out on this one. :)
