Default Cortisone shot saved me from Crossbow

Ok guys ....no crossbow for me now. Got a cortisone shot last week for my shoulder and it feels great. Was able to draw back my compound yesterday and take some practice shots. It gets better , got home from work yesterday and there was a long rectangular box in the kitchen. My wife didnt hear me come in so I checked the shipping label ......yep cabela's. She came in before I could peek more I cant wait till xmas because all I asked for is a Parker Extreme Hunter Mag bow.....which is in that BOX !

Congrats on the bow and your condition. My brother-in-law has two bad shoulders and is seriously thinking about buying the Parker Extreme.

I'm glad it's working for you. Although you don't have pain becareful you don't injure it further.

About that box! Congrats on the new bow. I hope it is what you think it is and you enjoy it as much as you anticipate.

Congrades on the box .
Hope your shoulder stays feeling better.
Just be carful with the cortisone shots ,my doctor says that it can soften bone if you get too many shots.

I had numerous shoulder injuries to my left shoulder while playing sports in high school. Most came durring football, others durring wrestling. Now from my personal experience, I would make sure that i was doing numerous shoulder exercises. It first helps out with keeping it loose, and it also will help strengthen it. I dont know what kinda shoulder injury you have, but if i were you, i would find myself a chiropractor that practices A.R.T (Active Release Therapy) and visit him/her regularly if money allows it. My shoulder injuries were mild, but i believe that i tore some cartilage in my left knee durring wrestling and the chiro kept me wrestling without surgery. Just my thoughts. Anyways, congrats on the new bows and glad to hear that you can use them!!
