This is my first post here and I am a probably going into a lot of detail but I am at a loss of what to do.
This might be a bit of a weird topic but I am interested if anyone has any advice or recommendations. I have bent elbows, not just from my swing but in general. I have a sort of "genetic" problem which basically stops my elbows from fully extending. One (my left arm) is much worse than my other and I have had two surgeries on it in the last 8 months to remove bone spurs that have either broken off or causing pain.
Anyway to my point. Here is what my elbows look like
as you can see my left is a lot worse (top). So I have been trying to work out what sort of problems this might cause me on my swing and what sort of compensations I have to make for this sort of thing. "Keeping my left arm straight" is a bit different for me but I figured since it's technically straight anyway it shouldn't have ANY difference at all. I am not entirely sure where to start on this one or whether my logic is correct.
Just as one note, one day I noticed how much this caused my left wrist to be bent on my grip. Maybe it's the way I am gripping or my setup but this is how it looks
See how on the right side my wrist is so bent? is this more a setup issue than anything?
I have lots of questions as you can see and it's probably the weirdest thing I've asked on a forum but if anyone can give me some advice, if anything about this could cause me a problem or if my problems are more generic I would really appreciate it.
