Jumping into the discussion kinda late (couple months late) but yeah, my right arm's rotator cuff is pretty shredded. I have to do a lot of excersizes to keep the muscles around my shoulder strong to hold it in place decently enough. I also work my core quite a bit to try to keep my wrists as noodly as possible instead of sending weight through my shoulders, elbows, and wrists (my whole right arm is kinda messed up actually). I'm sure I'll probably spend some time at some point finding some different handlebars to put my arms in a different position but for right now what I've described has been working pretty well for me

Not sure if it’s been mentioned yet but kinesio tape is worth using.
I’ve used it on my shoulders, knees, elbow and now helping to hold my chest together after my open heart stuff.
There are numerous vids on YouTube as to how to use for different conditions.

My brand of choice is “Stengthtape”. I’ve never gotten a bad batch.
That’s more than I can say about the stuff at retail and drug stores.
Sucks when you’re on a ship and find out your tape has no glue.
