If it doesn't get better I'll go see my family doctor but he'll probably recommend a specialist and that's where it gets expensive! I'll probably just live with the pain and buy some new discs, especially after loosing my Buzzz on a water hole this morning,

I threw a disc in the river once during a doubles tournament went along side the riverbank and slipped and separated my left shoulder non throwing arm thank God, on the first hole of the 2nd round. We were sitting in 2nd shooting 9 down and ended up 3rd overall. sucked playing that entire round though, did see a doctor by the way also.

.....and if you do permanent damage, no sweat, there's a lot of things you can do for the rest of your life that don't involve throwing anything.

That sucks DC but glad you finished well. Haven't been yet but I have my checkup appt. soon so I'll let him know then. It's tolerable and only painful if I use my arm incorrectly, probably not as bad as my arthritis in the joints.

Guys... he did NOT ask a medical question at all... so no need for the "Go see a doctor" comments. The injury story was the background for his real question of, "Can you develop a full game throwing only backhand?"

And the answer is YES! A good forehand can get you out of trouble sometimes, but you can absolutely excel at this sport throwing only backhand. Find a good understable disc and you'll be fine.

Thumbers + impinged rotator cuff = no more forehands for me

I still do okay, I just throw more understable plastic if I have to go to the right (RHBH). Any strokes I lost I picked back up by developing turnovers and anhyzers and by playing smarter.

I guess I mis-interpreted that. It's my knee-jerk reaction, stemming from my own poor decisions in the past.

Oh, yeah, you can get pretty good throwing just backhand. Plenty of people play solely BH, or solely FH, and do well, particularly on certain courses. But it's not as good as having both techniques available.

NP DS, I understand it's hard to read into what the meaning was of some posts, especially mine I'm pretty sore all over from playing so much lately but I've got the bug and can't stop myself. Like sex it's very addictive and I just want to get better!

My round this morning wasn't too bad in very windy conditions and I had my personal best anhyser shot ever and almost drained it for a birdy. That won't help me to take some time off.

I still have to gain some distance to shoot low or below par consistently.
