Most likely from slining a 2" Dev and that stiff ass hose that Prochem gives with the 650.


So..

I'm sending him a tapered whip and a 1.5" to 2" cuff so that he can use the SS 12"Titanium for a few weeks to see if that helps.

Tell him to start taking Turmeric immediately 3 times/day. That'll help with the healing process. And he really needs to rest a few days if possible.

Can he raise his hand up over his shoulder? And does he have pain in his elbow also? I'm just comparing the pain if his to mine. I think I have more of a tennis elbow problem that's linked to my shoulder pain. His might be the same

It's not the hose. We're used that hose for decades, never had an issue or any employee had a shoulder issue.

Has to be something else he is doing. Your guys do use glides don't they?

Maybe, just maybe its because they don't groom. We always groomed and never had a shoulder problem. đŸ˜‰

I use a 15 foot 2 inch flexible whip hose I bought at dultmeires.
Solves the heavy hose problem. Friend has a greenHOLE wand that is so heavy on the back end. Hate it as it drags you down.

That's why I tell my younger friend that during the winter months you have to do strength training so your muscles don't atrophy . Shoulder work...........leg training........etc.

its a physical job u gotta warm up and stretch or youll be a total stiff and prob eventually need some kind of surgery

rotator cuff injuries hurt bad, I do a routine before lifting just for my rotator cuffs because I tore one a while back.

Got use the rotary or the Zipper more. Slinging that wand back and forth for years on end it what's wearing your shoulder out.

Just show the doctor the motion and how many hours a day you do it. Times a week, a month, a year, a decade.
