I was striding down the street for the final stretch of my warmup and one of the guys in the group I was running with decided to jump on my back so it would look like he was riding a horse. I fell on my knees, on asphalt, his ass weighs around 200, my ass is only 143. I started choking him and one of the guys broke my thumb trying to pull me off. My knees also felt like rubber and pain. Something happened to his trachea and we both got rushed to the hospital.
Had knee surgery to repair my meniscus after my first week of college wrestling. Out for the season, can't lift, drive, or walk on both legs for 6 weeks. Since I was at the hospital on the west side of my state I missed the first two days of classes during the new quarter. My teachers showed no mercy and dropped me from the courses. 50% refund. I'm typing this out at urgent care because I fell down when I was crutching up the stairs and fractured the bone under my pinky toe. They're gonna give me a hard cast on my good leg which means I'll have to wheel chair around form e next for weeks. Hold me fit.
I tore something in my knee a couple of weeks back and have been taking it easy on it since. yesterday I squatted a whopping 60kg for a warm up and felt a tingling but nothing more so I went to 70kg thinking a small increase wouldn't aggravate it too much but the second I went down I was fucked and have been limping around since.
in 2009 some bimbo pushed me so somehow i snapped my lower back. 7 years with backpain the only thing that removes the pains (except painkillers) are when i lift weights / general excecise... but if im inactive for more than 3 days the pain comes back.
>be me >been lifting 3 years >get first real injury last year >cant use knee for wseeks >gets better >do the same thing again >much worse this time getting depressded as fuck cant evcen go out to see friends, nevermind lifting >feel like life is over >see this thread >feel better thanks /fit/
>>35676735 2 years later lower back still flaring up, haven't deadlifted or squated since but still working around it. didn't even injure it doing a low rep max set, was on a fucking 20 rep squat set. That was after years and years of pulling 1rm deadlifts every week without injuries
>>35677193 Strengthen all your muscles around your rotator cuff until the inflammation goes and your shoulder is stable. As long as you keep all the small muscles balanced you should be fine. Don't be a fuckwit like me and keep benching through the pain.
>>35676735 >Broke my little toe on the refrigerator >did something to my knees from basketball, I can't even run, fellas my knees are fucked and that worries the shit out of me >smashed my knee on the corner of the coffee table, sore as shit, can't squat without pain >fucked up rotator cuff, sharp ass pain, can barely lift a gallon of milk >trigger finger on my ring finger, makes lifting difficult, should probably go to doctors
>>35676735 5/10, been lifting for half a year. Weak core exposed when trying water polo for first time on Monday . Probably should be back in before end of week, still that's two sessions I will end up missing
Very poor technique on a deadlift, practically no knowledge, bent over with both hands palm in (did not know how to do a deadlift at that time), snapped my lower back, and six months later snapped my upper back. Was immobile for both injuries for 1-2 months each. Could not hold myself up while bending over to wash hands, do simple pick up items, etc. Been in pain for nearly 7 years everyday. Gained over 70 lbs of fat, could not lift, tried running, nothing, always pain. Not until a few weeks ago, I went to GONSTEAD chiropractor after seeing youtube videos, physical therapy only worked for awhile but pain is always there, medical recommends surgery to laser out nerves and shit, so went to G chiropractor, did xray and check up, came back two weeks later, Doc does three subluxations (adjustments) to my lower back, mid back, and neck (some girl wanted to demo her snapping tech, that fucked me up, DO NOT LET ANYONE OFFER TO ADJUST YOUR NECK EVEN IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS UNLESS ITS AN DOCTOR!!!), anyway, doc does adjustments, and HOLY SHIT, i kid you not, fucking nerve lets off for the first time in 7 years, muscles fucking ease up, cramps GONE instantaneously in my legs, upper back eases up, neck feels good, walk around like it's no problem, first time in 7 years my back doesn't hurt, next day do simple shit like wash my fucking hands because im tall and have to bend over slightly, NO FUCKING PAIN, no nerve glittery, no having to turn and buckle a certain way to pick up shit, just fucking bend knee, bend back like a normal person and pick up the damn item. WHY DIDN"T I GO TO CHIROPRACTOR A LONG FUCKING AGO. Ready to hit the gym and get my old gains back, but Im following what the doc is saying about how I need to take it slow, and I will have to see him for a year to correct this, THANK GOD. Forgive me for cursing. yeesh!
Benching makes my right shoulder hurt and it has been predominantly targeting my upper chest for some reason, shoulders a lot, even if I go lighter. No problems with OHP. No shoulder discomfort or pain when squatting (low-bar) or DLing, not even when doing dips with 20kg. I guess my form is somehow worse but I never altered it so it's weird. I was benching up to 80 just fine. Then it started feeling harder at 82 or so. Got to 85 but the discomfort made it unbearable to do more than 2 or so sets. It's not a sharp pain, it's a dull pain, as if coming from the shoulder joint. Haven't benched for 2 or 3 weeks now, letting it rest, but tried two days ago some 75kg for 2 reps and it was still the same. I can't connect my hands behind my back (one going from the top and one from the bottom) so I'd say I need to stretch, however, it still doesn't explain this. Any help?
Bro I feel ya. I hiked 40 km in 12 hours a few months ago with a 25 kg pack, which started a tracking problem in my right knee. Now every time I walk downhill for more than a few minutes it feels like my patella is grinding itself to dust.
>>35678136 THanks brother, I actually cried to my gf, she knew of me having back problems, but I never opened up about how bad it was (like scrubbing a tub would take me an hour, I felt really a deep lonliness and hoplelessness having those injuries happened), and for the first time in a long time, I feel like the old me, I feel that hope that i can do sports again (cause that is the only thing I know that gets me friends and builds my confidence), it's a long road to recovery, but Im happy and do not care how long it goes, still feel pain and tightness, but not as bad as before. I'm like a bitch right now confessing like this, but Im alright with that right now. Proper form is my religion and what I plan on always teaching in the future.
I saw a physio shortly after and got it diagnosed. At first I thought i did my ACL, so it was a real relief, especially because tracking problems are common and relatively easy to fix.
To fix it im doing a daily remedial exercise programme which involves all of the following: -hip flexor and quad stretch -ITB foam roller release -Quads foam roller release -Standing quad stretch -Side-lying quad/ITB stretch -kneeling hip flexor stretch -double leg squat (body weight)
On top of that I do 20 mins of bike (LISS/MISS) after every gym session, and i get my quads dry-needled by my physio every so often.
I've come to think of the patella as a train; and the hip flexors, quads, and ITB as the tracks. Get the tracks twisted and you'll have a bad time.
>>35678118 Fuuuck are you me? My left shoulder gets really sore. The tendons and bones around it feel tight and compacted, not like a pump. I have noticed after recording myself that my left side lafs behind my right so i the barbell goes up unevenly. Fuck man sucks
Also, my injury is back related. My lower backs hurts now after a day of high-volume OHP
>>35678486 >the arch I do this. It's a bitch thing to do after low-bar squats, though. >Shoulderblades together on the bench I have this. As I said, my form was good, nothing hurt, it felt strong, solid, tight, I wasn't leaning on one side of the bench or another... And I'm sure my form is still the same... I don't know what happened... Even on lower weights. Maybe it's my chest being too tight... I wonder. Will work on stretching.
Strained my pec last Summer, I've healed it and eventually came to bench 300lbs for a single, sometimes it stills feels kinda weird, maybe it didn't heal normally but it doesn't bother me that much anymore.
Bicep tendinitis is fucking killer, I deadlifted mixed grip and got 495lbs for a max, but now I'm working my way up to that using double overhand, my bicep feels fine during that.
Sometimes my shoulder acts up, I think it's damaged, I go through long periods of time where it doesn't bother me then out of nowhere it will hurt when I lift.
>>35676735 >Tfw lifted heavy for two years with no incidents >Tfw got a job at a grocery store and bending to reach into people's carts has fucked my back up (sciatic pain and all) >Tfw don't lift because I'm scared of snabbing my shidd ub now >Tfw it's been 3 months and I'm getting so fat now
>>35677176 >>35677099 >>35677193 I feel ya brehs my shoulder started hurting beginning of December. I over did it with bench+ohp same day and I felt pain just bellow my delt, under it. This week is the first day without pain and I finally benched again. Did a lot of facepulls, lightweight and band training and stretches. I think I am okay now.
But it took almost 2 months to get better. Fuck those muscles
>>35676758 Let it rest. I did this once and it was this chronic thing every time I tried to bench but then I stopped benching for months and now I'm back to setting bench PRs pain free. Honestly OHP is a good enough substitute if you can't bench.
>>35677874 don't worry trappy. I fell on my wrist in high school and now, 6 years later, it still fucking hurts sometimes. I have problems doing one arm dumbbell rows now. I suggest yoga for wrist pain. Look it up on youtube. It helped me
>>35676735 I hurt my left hand really bad over the holiday and had a huge bruise across my waist from fucking up a chest press. I'm pretty good now but I can't do my normal weight for open-hand bicep curls without my hand/wrist hurting so I have to change my lifts for a while.
My back used to hurt a lot but I have changed how I lift and carry my books/bag.
Hurt my lower back while doing squats and deadlift on the same day. My family doctor was pretty useless and just gave me pain killers, no time frame for when it will heal back, how serious the injuries is, if there is anything i can do to improve it etc. Should I seek physiotherapy on my own and maybe a xray scan?
