I'm thinking that if your shoulders are that bad, it might turn into a problem for pulling, cutting away, or steering your reserve sometime.

Shocked

imagination and improvisation are all well and good....

and imagination has helped to grow our sport,,,Smile but when it comes to "improvising" in skydiving...
WinkWink... that doesn't always translate so well.

Sometimes it tends to introduce a whole new set of concerns.


good that " you are thinking" but try some rehab and patience until you are able to operate your gear , safely..
good luck

See an MD. Most rotator cuff injuries don't need surgery and you'll be fine with some prescript antiinflamatory and some rehab. That being said, continued wear and tear can make the problem worse at which point, they might need to go in an repair the damage. You really don't want that.

Bad idea. Go get your shoulder evaluated. You want it to pop out at the worst time? Save the rigging for the riggers. Make sure you're OK, first.
