A few years back, I had a twinge in my left shoulder. You know the one... the shoulder my bass hangs on? About that time, I began icing it and doing some therapy exercise. I sold my 10lb basses and picked up basses in the 8lb range. It eventually got better. (That was actually the beginning of me buying/selling basses... hmmm) Fast forward to a month ago... I was moving a piece of furniture and felt a *pop* in that same shoulder. This was different than before. I talked with my doctor. He said surgery would likely not be necessary. So he gave me some exercises and told me to go back to icing it. Most of the time, it doesn't affect my bass playing. Last weekend I played 3 nights and even after hours of a bass hanging around my neck, there was a dull ache but nothing major. Playing upright is a different story. the angle of the arm makes it a little more uncomfortable, but still doable. Some days it will hurt if I sleep on it wrong. But for the most part, it's just a mild nuisance. if it flares up, Advil does the trick. Curious if anyone else here has dealt with a shoulder injury or even pain. Anyone have surgery?
