I agree that the best way to release the crossbow is to shoot it. I started using a crossbow because of shoulder problems as well but I am able to release mine by gripping the string tightly with both hands, tripping the trigger with my thumb and letting the string down gradually. I can't speak for Ten-Point bows or others but Excalibur has a good instructional video on their website for releasing the recurve crossbow with the cocking aid. It can be done safely using their method. This may sound obvious but in all cases PLEASE be sure to remove the arrow before uncocking the bow. If not you may find your foot pinned to the ground in a very painfull way. Hope this helps.
