    Currently, my neck is too straight which caused two impinged shoulders, carpal tunnel, a pinched nerve and a rib to straight up not be in the right place.

      Tendonitis in one of my fingers. Incredibly minor but I can't make a fist or hold stuff so I've been out for about four months (haven't been able to play music either, driving me nuts). Tried working through it for a bit, just made it worse. It's getting better though.
      Only able to do cardio but now my hip flexor's acting up, so all I'm able to do is jump rope really. It is what it is, hopefully only another few weeks before a return, God willing.

      Best wishes man, hope it turns out alright. How'd you mess up your shoulders like that?

        I was either born with the straight neck or it developed as I grew up. Either way, the neck fricked everything. But you can change the curve of your neck with simple exercises I just found out. Took 3 chiropractors and 3 phys therapist before I found out.

          I wish I had a straight neck, I feel like my neck kind of has the "forward neck" posture, how can you even change ur neck position? Which exercises do you do

            Back exercises. Pullups will get most of it. Rear delts, teres, lats, rhomboids, target everything. Healthy shoulders = healthy(ier) neck. Lats move the shoulders.

            Ok to take straight neck to curved.
            1) sit up straight, keeping chest in place
            2) put your neck back to make a double chin
            3) with neck locked in double chin place, look up as much as possible, stretching that neck as much as it'll go
            4) do 30 reps 5x a day

              Does English language seriously have only one name for neck muscles as in the ones in the back of the neck are just "neck muscles" while also the one in the front of neck are called the same? Not counting the Latin/medical names.

              Also that's solid advice, I knew all this before but stopped doing it at some point. It helps immediately but take it slow obviously.

                I have no idea but I'm sure there's some kind of fix. I do know if your neck is fricked and you work out, you will suffer the consequences eventually. So I suggest finding a physical therapist that knows their shit and asking them specifically about unfricking your neck. It's that or waiting for an inevitable injury that will happen anyway. Or Google it, find the scientific term and YouTube fixes and do the exercises religiously.

    impinged shoulder 4 years, cubital tunnel 2.
    think they are related.
    regardless they are both fricked, surgery is only option this many years after. rehab and rest did nothing for either.

      Pain is very strange. You can be in pain with practically no mechanical damage or dysfunction, and you can be painless with severe mechanical damage.

        >You can be in pain with practically no mechanical damage or dysfunction
        Yes sometimes with none at all. In this case you have to slowly work to the point of pain to desensitize by basically showing your body that you are not in danger by being in that position like it thinks you are.

        This is an especially prevalent problem in the lower back.

    Yes, I got a new job who requires some amount of physical work, 2 weeks in my left forearm/wrist started hurting, tried to keep lifting thru it and only got worse, I'm on my 2nd week off the gym now, the pain isn't excruciating, just annoying.
    Feels really fricking bad and I feel depressed as shit for not being able to go to the gym, I don't really know if it's tennis elbow, forearm splint or just tendonitis, I'm going back to the gym on next Monday tho.
    It just feels like my left side (weak one) is just so fricked compared to my right side, my shoulder injury last year was on my left side aswell.

        Cheers, mate. I've seen his stuff before but it looked a bit suss. Is he actually legit?

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          Yeah he's legit, miles ahead of modern day exercise "science". Fixed all sorts of my fricked up shit. His main focus was knees starting out, because of having fixed his own glass knees, but he covers all areas of the body by now. A lot of his shit is very scaleable and he tends to show equipment-free alternatives, so don't be too proud to start at a stage that seems "too easy" if that's where you need to be to train pain-free. Start slow and take it seriously, take the time to find the exercises that work for your particular set of injuries and you will WAGMI. Good luck

            Thank you very much. I greatly appreciate it. I hurt my knee whilst cycling at night and going over a pot hole I did not see. It is mainly sore at the back of the knee and deep within the centre from the front. Hopefully this bloke has something for me. How long did it take for your knees to recover due to his advice?

              Happy to help, friend.

              >How long did it take for your knees to recover due to his advice?
              I had patellar tendinitis and a generally fricked up knee after taking a bad kick right below the kneecap, and resting did nothing for it for years. The only results I got for it were a combination of cross-fibre massage using the massage gun to break up the scar tissue and then the slantboard ATG squats and split squats from kneesovertoesguy to actually strengthen and fully recover the knee area.
              It's hard to remember exactly how long as I did it for so long before finding this shit. I've been doing his stuff maybe a year or so now with increasing adherance as I started to notice the benefits. The tendon is entirely pain-free now and I lift, run, swim, and combat sports without any knee problems. It'll entirely depend on the injury but I imagine for your cycling injury it'll help in some way.

              His exercises have also fixed my hips and lower back almost completely and I'm beginning work on his shoulder stuff too. It's one of those things where the sooner you start the better really, so long as you are realistic and treat the exercises as rehab first rather than anything ego-oriented like normal lifting tends to be. There's no shame in doing low weight or easy motions when it comes to rehab as the goals is recovery rather than bragging rights.

              Here's a good starting point and just check out the other stuff to see what applies to you

    There isn't a single gym goer who isn't suffering from some chronic injuries, not a single one. However that doesn't mean not going to gym saves you from illnesses or pains, people in general are extremely sick nowadays. And obviously some of the gym goers had the injury before going to the gym.

    I fricked up my hamstring on a warm up set of deadlifts, just lmao 135lbs. Felt it overstretch right where it attaches at the base of my butt, hopefully this goes away in a few days. Please.

    I think I have nerve irritation/damage from getting my neck tugged on during BJJ. My whole lower and middle trapezius is pretty much paralyzed, with only my upper trap working (I can shrug my shoulders).
    Has been over a month now since the initial injury with no improvement to motor function, and I live in canada so I have to wait a long ass time before being able to see a neurologist. From what I've read, since I only have a partial loss of function/paralysis of my trap, it will just heal over time (could take up to 2 years). If it doesn't, I might never be able to get function back again.
    Feels good man

      Doctors suck. Start learning as much about physical therapy as you can. Go down the youtube rabbit hole and become a self-taught student. Like the other guy said nerves take ages to heal so start doing everything you can do now because if you wait for it to magically get better it will only get worse.

        Yeah this is a self-diagnosis, my physiotherapist and doctor don't know what it is.
        I have diagnosed it with 90% accuracy from self-taught knowledge (paralysis of muscle, no pain, TENS machine doesnt stimulate contraction, spinal accessory nerve that gives trap its function runs down the side of the neck where chokes from BJJ would irritate, etc).

        Fortunately for me, I think the likelihood of it getting better (since it was a very gradual trauma and not like a car accident kind of trauma, also that I still have upper trap function) is hopeful.
        Have never ice or heat, just letting it rest as there is literally no pain or discomfort, just the paralysis.

        Doctors are the worst - my doctor doesn't believe it's anything serious and my physiotherapists seem to be inexperienced at their job.

          Good luck with the fix anon. I only suggest cold because of it's inflammation reduction benefits. I've never had what you have, but with my own nerve issues (pinched nerves) daily morning ice baths have been very beneficial.

    Have minor knee injury for the past 3 weeks. Have been doing R.I.C.E. and wearing a knee brace and it has helped alot. Have refrained from any leg workouts since the injury and have been stretching much more frequently. Don't let an injury get you down bros, just look forward to all the plateaus you have yet to push past.
