My roommates got a good laugh out of this thread. I don’t see why it’s that funny…
BTW, which ligament was damaged?[/quote]
He said that the ulnar collateral ligament was the one that got sprained the most, but he also stated that the radial collateral ligament is a little tender also.
im typing this with one hand right now since whenever i move the fingers on my other arm the throbbing pain is emphasized.
If movement of your fingers causes pain, you did more than just sprain a ligament in the elbow. Pain on active movement indicates contractile tissue (or nervous tissue) injury. I would get a second opinion and have the soft tissue around your common extensor origin checked out (brachioradialis,biceps, wrist extensors etc).
hope that helps
The pain subsided slightly, so I thought it was going to be ok, however I woke up the other day and I was in fucking agony.
So I went to the pyshio at my gym last night.(he’s highly rated so I thought that would be a good idea)
Anyways, this might make you laugh:
I did indeed sprain the ligaments on my elbow from the elbow was hyperextended in the collision with the bag of cement, however, something else contributed to the pain…
You see, I got pretty drunk the night before, and did some arm wrestling with my friends, anyway apparently my technique is shit and because of the maximal isomentric contraction and torque/positioning of my forearm I injured my bicep tendon.
So I have Elbow Tendonitis (Caused by 2 hours of arm wrestling on top of weight training biceps during the week) and a slight sprain on my radial collateral ligament & ulnar collateral ligament.
Safe to say my arm is pretty fucked, however my pyshio suggested some rehabilition excerises which will help, this includes squeezing this ball he gave me for a few minutes a couple times a day, and perform some very light dumbbell curls, doing about 3 sets of 20 every day.
On top of this I have to ice it, see the pyshio for tendon massaging and apply ‘deep heat’ to the elbow area.
Hooray for arm wrestling & catching bags of cement!
