There are quite a few tutorials out there that you can look up on youtube.  Demon drills.

It's best to train without braces unless you have a specific injury you're recovering from.  Otherwise you're just training the body to be dependent on the brace.  If you're feeling pain from normal motion, chances are that you have a condition that needs attention before you continue training.

That's all dependent on the surgeon, the procedure, and the individual.  Expect several months at the very least for full recovery, though.

Guess he should've left it "cracked".  Maybe next time he should let the "cracked" bone sever an artery or something.  That'll teach him to charge you $2000.

Even though doctors and hospitals are going out of business everywhere due to bankruptcy...

And I don't know about him, but what I paid to become a doctor was roughly a quarter million dollars and about 8 years of my life above the average person, studying and sacrificing everything to learn to help people.  The interest on my loan and the amount of time it's gonna take me to pay that off might be somewhere around 20 years of my life.  Now, I don't charge that much, nowhere near that amount, but I know that if my patients spoke about me in the way you are--

Try titanium ankle exercises.  Or searching through the forum for the many topics posted on shin splints.

This is nowhere near enough info.  I'm going to go with... *licks finger and puts it in the air*  An act of God.  Lighting that you can't see.

Sorry, sarcasm aside, probably a strain.  But could be a fracture.  A sprain.  The end of the world....

If you wanna go to the "dark side", check out NET, and acupuncture to address emotional issues that can sometimes manifest physically *gasp, I did just suggest the psycho-somatic link*  sue me.

1st off, as a chiro (as steve said), and in practice, you come to learn that every profession toots their own horn.  It looks like you're a student, Jacob, but the fact is that there is so much overlap in what a PT vs Chiro can do that it comes down to the practitioner.  A sciatic problem CAN be better managed by a PT, and just the same, a soft tissue injury can be best managed by a Chiro.  Can, does not mean may, or must, or always.

IMHO, don't matter.  Fix the patient, do a good job, know your stuff.

And there's no need to have a flame war.

See a chiro.  Could be discal damage.

could also be a build up of scar tissue that continues to tear.

not to mention that from the sounds of it you self diagnosed "sciatic nerve".  Add chiro to steve's list and you're good.  Backs and nerves are the bread and butter of chiropractic.

Many dangerous accidents within the medical field are caused by the best of intentions.  Misinformation and uninformed advice are so extremely common that it must be stamped out as soon as you see it.  This is especially rampant in the athletic community where "I did this, and this and that helped.".  If you ever have any awareness at all that you may cause further injury with your advice, do not give it.

Injuries - Discussion / Re: Torn TFCC (Wrist)
« on: December 31, 2011, 07:29:35 PM »
I see this tear a lot, actually commonly with reverse vaults at fault, and also basically any dynamic planting with rotation while the wrist is extended.  It can heal, typically, but as steve said it's the meniscus of the wrist.  Elbow issues often can make this situation worse as the ulna can be fixated causing excessive motion in the distal ulna over the fibrocartilage there.  As steve said, chiro can help, but they have to look at the entire shoulder and even up to the neck (as well as the wrist and elbow, obviously)

Recommending planches when handstands are prohibited is NOT a good idea.  dumb, actually, since if a handstand could take your eye out, you definitely shouldn't be doing planches.

I'm neg 1 that post since even if you're fine, that was dangerous advice that coulda cost someone their eye.  Not cool.

Sounds like it is exactly from drops.  I see this all the time in my clinic.  Unfortunately, it may not be something you can fix yourself.  See a pt/chiro who knows the talo-talo joint like the back of their hand.

« on: November 19, 2011, 06:33:45 PM »
also, most those exercises you described don't really help the stability of the shoulder joint in relation to the rotator cuff, which is where the shoulder associated with disclocations will be most vulnerable.  As steve said, this is def a PT thing, but you might also ask for imaging to check for various tears which would also destabilize the joint.
