Sometimes I try and lighten up the fact that I have accumulated some very serious injuries over my career...so lets have some fun...and everyone list them here! Lets swap notes, maybe we can help each other with rehab and surgery advice as well? Also...this thread will MOTIVATE many as you will always find someone with the same injury, that rehabbed it right and came back better than ever!

CURRENT INJURIES:

MRI RESULTS CAME BACK, GRADE 3 (GRADE 4 IS TOTAL RUPTURE) OF THE RECTUS FEMORIS (QUAD) RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE THIGH

SEVERLY TORN QUAD AT ITS INSERTION AT THE HIP

TORN PATELLA TENDON

I give you props after all that I'd probably give up heavy lifting and find another activity that I enjoyed and train that instead.
Edit: my injuries, Broken 5th metacarpal, broken 2nd metacarpal, myositis osifican in my left leg, navicular avulsion, ac joint contusion.

I have been competing since 1994. I only had one injury that happened about 5 years ago. I strained my tricep tendon. I went to a sports medicine doctor and got a MRI. He gave me some strong prescription NSAID. I was 100% in 4 weeks.

Competition training less then 2 years... I've torn both Distal tendons (biceps at the elbows), lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), and I've lost 2 toe nails from a log being dropped on them, and one finger nail from a partner who swung a 45lb plate at me... lol

At this rate I should be crippled by 50...

good grief! Lotta pain in here!!

Rock, I think you would have a shorter list if you put what you haven't injured!! lol

I tore a pec in highschool. Until I found ETS it always gave me a little grief in my shoulder

I always seem to be icing something, forearms, elbows. Stress fractured my right leg as well in highschool.

Other than that, 90% of the time I'm pain free

let's see... strained my right rotator at my first go around with 500lbs on the bench..

partial tear in my right bicep after doing under handed bent over barbell rows with a WARMUP set of all things..

severe tendonitis in my right elbow..

let's start pickingon the left side for awhile ... I MEAN DAMN!

haha ROCK..man you've been through hell and back! GOOD LORD!

welcome to the pain ladies and gentlemen!

problem with everything has been not training smart..and over training when i had signs of poor recovery... ever since I started taking results and ets from atlarge nutrition.... i've had NONE of those problems even after moving ridiculous numbers day after day!

now if i can just catch travis's raw bench at 250 I'll be feeling pretty good HAHA!

From Lifting:
2 bulging discs
1 fractured disc
spondylosis (unnatural gap inbetween two discs) which my hamstring nerves poked out and were pinched shooting pain down my legs every time I bet my back
minor scoliousis

God damn. I guess I'll put my meager list up here...

Broken left leg - sledding.
Broken left wrist - soccer
Left wrist brake again (dif place) - wrestling
Dislocated knee - wrestling
Concussion - wrestling
Sprained all fingers on right hand - wrestling

NO INJURIES YET FROM LIFTING! Been lifting since freshman year of high school. Do you think most of the powerlifting injuries are due to overtraining, bad luck/genetics, or just being stupid?

LOL THIS IS A MANLY THREAD!

Thanks to all that have posted thus far. As you can see......NO ONE on the list stated that they DID NOT come back...EVERYONE CAME BACK FROM THEIR INJURIES! I urge any of you that have a current injury to pm or post the question to those that have came back from the injury, you can learn ALOT!

In my particular case, I can tell you that ART, or ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE is ONE OF THE BEST REHAB procedures going brothers....trust me on that one. Keep the thread rolling brothers!

Hell I thought it was Gym injuries, Hell I dont even know where to start. That list would be huge from Nasal Surgery from shoving a 1 inch screw up my nose at 3 yrs old all the way to complete reconstruction of my right ankle to and about a billion things in between.

The coolest being my right wrist, dove into a leaf pile at 6 yrs old ran my hand into tore open pop can. Well needless to say flesh and aluminum dont mix well. I lost tons of blood and and damn near bled out before they got me to the hospital. Now I got t his kick ass scar on my wrist and I tell people it was from my gone Mental days :)

Only thing I have ever had was part of my lower back severely tighten and constantly cramp up to the point where I could barely walk.


Although, I was deployed in the desert at the time, so laying off work or physical activity was absolutely no option.

It really quite sucked.
