Formerly a CMU Chippewa!
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.

Partially Torn RCs
Bulge in L4/L5
Tore majority of muscles in lowerback that led to above bulge
Fuck, fight, or hold the light.
Tore my ACL back in '02 and I put the "Stone Cold Steve Austin" brace and pitched on it my senior yr in college!
Torn calf last year, partially torn bicep the year before that. Minor strains and pulls all the time. It pays to have a chiro friend with access to alot of rehab equipement!
Tear in right glute near attachment to dorsal illiac crest.
Broken right wrist (not due to lifting but it affects me).
Slight tweaks in lower back at least 3-4 times.
That's about it but I've only been lifting seriously for 3 1/2 years.

Broken L3 vertebrae resulting in slippage of the L2 and L4. Rehab: 10 months physio, no activity
Torn left RC. Rehab: 3 months physio, light weights
Broken right wrist resulting in ligament damage of my pointer finger and middle finger. Rehab: on going (7 months so far).
Pinched nerve in neck. Rehab: 3 weeks, no activity.
Severe bruise right above the patella resulting in limited movement for about a week.
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!

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?
tore hip abductor
strained lower back
strained upper back like 100 times
very minor pec tear (never went to the doctor but felt it tear and couldnt bench without pain for a long time)
YOU CANT BUY STRENGTH
Man, I too have a laundry list. I will have to post it later.

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!
I have had a few, the worst being a torn hymen, but nothing is more irratating than when i get sand in my clit.
