Re: Please help - got injured badly in aikido 2 days ago.worried I can't do aikido future
Hi guys, just wanted to make an update. It's been some time since I last posted here.
It's healed completely. However, the pain still lingers.
Its not alot of pain at all, but it hurts sometimes a decent amount and then it goes away. For a short moment I have some pain, (several seconds) then the pain goes away again. I'm wondering if this is normal or if I'm always going to have pain with this injury. I still cannot sleep on my left side, due to the strain on the shoulder.
I passed my first test (yellow belt, rokkyu) successfully after the injury recently.
It mostly hurts when I roll. Rolling on my left side (which is my 'good' side, I roll best on my left side for some reason) properly with very low impact still gives it some pain. Taking ukemi to a kaiten nage is painful sometimes.
Rolling backwards it doesn't really hurt/barely hurts at all. just forward on the left side. Certain positions seem to hurt more.
I know you guys aren't doctors, but has anyone here experienced the same thing? What helped you with it? Has the pain gone away for you completely?
