@Kaitlin_ excellent advice posting videos, above and beyond most comments i see.

SwadeJaxsun I had broken the tip of my elbow off and had 2 pins in it for a year and 2 surgeries. i was missing range of motion like you.  so we have the same symptom of rom loss rooting from different problems.
I went through therapy 2x’s and still was lacking rom. 5 years after that I took an archery class and within 6 weeks I had 100% rom.
using the bow compels your wrist, elbow and shoulders to work like a wrist, elbow, and shoulder should.  
Todd Hargrove, “A Guide To Better Movement”, teaches a principle that the nervous system as a highly intelligent, overprotective mother.  once your brain feels safe or that the movement you’re about to do won’t affect survival then it begins to give you more movement capacity back.

thoughts?
