It seems, my fellow pirates, that there are a few of us with more than just a couple of niggles. I have a a reoccurring calf injury that probably goes back to an injury I hd 10 years ago and now that I've upped my training, it's coming out to haunt me. So I thought I'd start the ball rolling....

List your injuries and actions taken here!

Suffolk Punch - Calf and stinking cold.
Action - phoned Physio, awaiting reply and drinking lots of hot toddies.

Good idea SP! Too many pirates not taking injuries seriously enough.

Sprained ankle
Something wrong with shoulder too.

Third visit to physio tomorrow and ooh, the possability of a cortizone injection to my shoulder soon.

Well finger crossed my little ankle niggle has gone away - treatment 3 weeks off running and then easing back into the running, starting with only a mile and adding one mile to each run. I'm back to 30 miles a week now. So the moral is rest it properly then don't go mad with the mileage when you start training again.

Not a pirate, but any chance to have a moan or join a list!

Ailments
Left knee - ITBS
Right knee - (suspect) platella tendonitis
Both calves - torn
Lungs - remnants of icky infection
Skin - being dissolved by pool

Action - change in foot position on bike for ITBS, seems to have worked, PT will have to wait for deep tissue massage when my calves are less painful, infection is slowly departing, and plenty of moisturiser for the skin!

Ailments
Left knee: cartilege abrasion, lateral compartment syndrome, tendonitis

Back: spondilolisthesis (broken vertebra) at L5/S1; unidentified problem in mid-thorax

The spondilolisthesis results in weakness and (comparitive) underdevelopment of my left buttock and leg.

All that said, I still manage to keep going and am fitter than a lot of injury-free people half my age!

So there ;-)

Oh Candy that sounds bad! I hear that can be early signs of chiropodinecroscopy. Better get it checked or your arm might drop off.

Action - Buying second hand police box (suprisingly spacious interior)
03/02/2005 at 10:25

2T- You mentioned ITB from cycling and foot position. Can you tell me more? I tend to point my toes down (probably bad though ive no idea) and have been developing a rather painful thigh at the side of my leg about 12 inches above the knee. Obviously this is not where people get ITB friction problems but it feels like it is the same muscle just further up.

Oxy,

I think you're right, it is the same muscle and could be something to do with your riding action...

Ive booked the physio anyway (I'm just hoping she has forgoten me as I accidently flashed her the last time I went) In fact I seem to be turning int a flasher, I managed to drop my towell a the pool this morning whilst fumbling with my locker key, thereby revealing myself to the entire swimming pool and a rather attractive lifegaurd.
