Thanks a heap.
Yes, it's common. And the suggestions above are excellent, +1.
All I would add is to do non-bass-related physical activities with your shoulders that make you move and stretch differently than playing bass. It doesn't matter if it is shoveling, stacking, reaching, tree-trimming, tire-changing, mowing or even throwing a baseball/football, just do something else and make it 1) a habit 2) a length of time consistent with the amount of time you sit to play DB.
