intro and question

hi, new to this blog but not knitting. I’m an established knitter for over 40 years now. in those few years I have done many different techniques even worked on me and how I held yarn posturestopped holding to tight, all I could think of. Unfortunately falls resulted in torn rotator cuff as well as two ligiments. I understand I am not a good candidate for surgery. so say multiple docs
for over a year I have not been able to knit due to pain. I believe I have good posture and no forward head posture to aggravate it so does anyone have any suggestions. I love my hobby and don’t want to stop.
if I cant return to it I want to be able to help other s with issues

Do you work on circular needles? They are a bit easier in some ways on the hands and arms.

There are some suggestions here including support gloves:

I don’t know if this will help, but this just popped up on FB.
