WE all get those lovely bruises of course, But I am curious...I did my first hoop performance...the day after I woke up with a really hurt neck I could barely turn my head from side to side. Luckily I work for a chiro, few adjustments and boom I feel better. Few weeks later I learn the continuous shoulder roll....and now almost a week later my neck is killing me!!! I may have a swollen disc, don't know for sure. and this is making it hard for me to work because I am a massage therapist and some movements send horrible pain up and down my neck. So has anyone ever hurt themselves from shoulder hooping???? or am I the only lucky one?
Mystikspinz in pain =(
ice, lady, ice!! I'm an LMT too, I know the feeling.
Hang in there. Honor your condition. Don't do what doesn't feel right.
I severely herniated a lumbar disc. Don't know what you call the move. I was doing an isolation and kind of peek inside the hoop and then turn around the world with it.
I spent 5 weeks very immobile and in excruciating pain and about 12 weeks total before I was able to slowly build up to normal activity.
Our bodies have amazing healing properties. I'm able to hoop pretty much how I used to. But you have to do it in the bodies time frame, which is most likely much slower than the minds.
Oh yikes :(
I've had a few bloody noses, bruises, an almost-black eye, and a back so sore I could hardly walk the day after learning vertical chest hooping. Nothing so serious.
