I am a disc golfin chiropractor in MI. The last year or so I've been doing this technique called Koren Specific Technique or K.S.T. It is not one of those three times a week for six to eight week ordeals. It's fast, and gets you back on the course quicker. Do a search on K.S.T. and watch the videos. You can find a practitioner in your area. It is the discers dream adjustment.

i am right handed & i do throw R H B H alot : but since i had heart surgery recently i have only been throwing short drives & putts rhbh. , so i give the chest/ split sternum a chance to heal well. for the longer drives i have been either rolling or tossing the disc right hand fore hand ,with the 2 finger flick toss, ....this toss dosent pull on the chest area as much as rh bh. although when i do the rhfh toss, i tend to lean over to the right thus stretching the left oblique

Left side? Just for my information, are you throwing right hand back hand?
