Hey Everyone, So i know this is a bit vague, but I was at a proper gymnastics gym (ironically) and was stretching in the pancake position, a position i can usually get chest to floor in - and I shifted from side to side a little, and felt/heard a pop, right below my glute but in towards my groin, whatever muscle that is. Not quite hamstring, not quite groin, and I know I'm doing a horrible job explaining. I thought I had just seriously injured myself, but i stood up, got into a squat, moved around, no pain. That being said, I still don't have "pain" but I can't get as deep into a pancake without some tension and discomfort - I'd say a 2-3 on a 1-10, 1 being and itch, 10 being unconscious. From what my googling has led me to believe I probably have a very minor muscle/tendon strain, as I have no loss of strength, just a loss of perceived mobility - where i feel tension on the area, slight discomfort, and can't get as low as I like. The only two moves I feel this in are a pancake, or a really deep side to side squat; but i haven't lost any strength - which i read was one of the indicators of a stage 2+ tear. Has anyone had a similar injury? How did you deal with it? Did you stretch? Not stretch? Ice? Heat? Please let me know what's worked for the community, as I'm getting conflicting answers from training buddies and coaches, and I know if I go to the doc they'll prob just prescribe me something or say "you need an MRI." I have great insurance, but want to stay non-radiated unless absolutely essential. Thanks!
I'm a competitive USAG Level 8+ gymnast. I have a recent bilateral strain and soreness with sudden onset, ie, did not develop over weeks or months. What have you found successful as far as recovery process and time? I'm 5-6 weeks until season competitions.
Hey there everyone, I have a couple of things that I need help with and id greatly appreciate the assistance. I've had a muscle injury about 2 months ago, and i feel like im really falling behind on my training and want to get back into it as soon as possible. I think what caused the injury was doing a slow muscle-up with my 45lb vest. I cannot tell which muscle it is that I injured, it feels like its between the bicep and tricep. I think it might be the brachialis muscle. There is no bruising around the area, and as far as pain, there really isnt any...i mean there is enough so i can feel that its not normal but it doesnt really hurt..It feels like it is right in between the elbow and shoulder. What would you guys suggest that I should do? I really take my training seriously, and thats all i really do. I havn't been able to work on anything but legs, abs and lower back. If theres anything that you could tell me that would help a whole lot. I've tried to get tips and help from other people...but no one really has anything other than the basic things to tell me;rest, ice, compression, anti-inflammatories. I do all of that...but is there really anything else that would speed up the healing process? Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you guys.
