Just started grappling, got a pretty bad case yesterday of a twisted big toe. The left big toe got bent dorsally pretty bad during a throw, making the whole front of the foot swell and the joint at the base of the toe hurt.
I continued training ( dumb.) and when I finished I had to hobble out of the gym because of the pain.
Now I'm eating a bunch of anti-inflammatory spices, curcumin, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, and some Cissus. I'm also elevating the foot, compressing and cooling it with ice packs now and then.
Any other tips to get me back to training as fast as possible?
Obviously I want it to heal so it doesn't become more damaged, but anyone else with experience with what makes things like this heal faster? Upping my Omega 3 intake as well.
