Help please


I have recently developed a shoulder problem that is restricting movement of my right arm behind my back. It has gotten so bad after just a couple of jumps that on my last jump i could not reach my pilot chute and had to pull my reserve. Has anyone had ant issues like this in the past and what did you do to regain full use? Please help. Not willing to give up skydiving.

Relocation of throwout to leg pouch as in the early 90s has worked for some of our physically challenged jumpers.  This works safely for some disciplines but not all.  Also moving the throwout to a left hand rather than right hand throw.  Both of these would require retraining as to not brainlock at pull time.
