I have a YSL-882 GOR here on long term loan from a friend who switched to playing bassoon. When I put an Edwards Bullet Brace on my 830, he put one on the 882. It makes a huge difference on holding the weight of the horn.

There are many aids like the Bullet Brace that help with holding the horn: Neotech, Rath Hand Brace, Ergobone, etc. They might help solve your problem.

Many trombonists rest the horn on the shoulder, especially basstrombonist with a wide slide.
That is not a problem by it self.
Other players let the horn lean against the neck. No problem.
 There ar other problems you dond hand like nose heavy horn like tobone or s a narrow slide and thick neck.

I say whatever problem you have,resting the horn on your shoulder is not one of them.
