post up in here if you're currently off your board from an injury. complain, whine, share rehab tips, support, etc.

i just got word from my doctor that i'll be out for at least a month due to a pinched nerve in my neck that's causing the whole left side of my body to act all fucky.

That must be a pretty bad pinched nerve. Rolled my ankle a little bit yesterday, not too bad but gives me an excuse to play black ops all day lol.

How about chronic, skate-related conditions which don't get better?  My pushing foot is coming apart inside.  My neck has had what feels like an out-of-place disc for about ten years from a reverse scorpion wreck.  Don't do those.

I'm still skating, but presently I've got three: sprained left ankle, bad back that got extra bad in a car accident a month ago, and the right shoulder needs surgery.

shit guys. i hope you all get well soon. none of those sound good.  i'm still skating too, but have been plagued with a wrist injury. whaaa whaaa whaaa!  i also have cement mixer joints and old injuries that never healed properly which nag from time to time. 

good diet and stretching are probably the best/quickest way to heal. unfortunately, i didn't listen to my own advice until i got older.

^ Is that your elbow? Looks painful.

I’ve got a degenerative hip problem, which basically means I’m in agony if I try to ollie. I’ve had it my whole life some days are better then others, I just know if I go overboard one day of ollieing equals two weeks of therapy.

I was also on disability for 6 months with a back injury and still suffer back problems everyday.
This helps

(couldn’t pass up the camel toe)

Heard a lot of good things about pool therapy so I might give it a try for all of my aches and pains.

I've gotten pretty banged up over the years. Mostly work-related injuries.

All you gotta do is follow three simple rules...
One: Never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected.
Two: Take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it's absolutely necessary.
And Three: Be nice.

Ankles are the worst. I sprained mine in October and it's still not 100%. My advice is to ice it every day and take 4 ibuoprofen tablets (800mg) every 8 hours. That's more than the packaging recommends but what the doctors tell me to do whenever I have any injury involving swelling. Ice and Advil will take the swelling out really quick and help with the pain so you can move your foot again, but they won't actually help heal the joint. Try to stay off of it as best you can for that. If you rush back into things like I did it will take longer to heal, but I got to a point where not skating sucked worse than the pain skating caused, so I can't blame you if you get the itch, too. I recommend wearing high top shoes after you get off the ankle injury, because ankle sprains beget more ankle sprains, and the support is much needed. Mid tops didn't do me too much good. I had to wear a pair of shoes that completely covered the ball of the ankle after I got off the injury. Low tops definitely couldn't cut it. I felt like I was going to break my ankle just pushing down the street in low shoes.
