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 =(
I was hooping and jumped through my hoop and landed on my ankle. I'm walking with a cane for a short time though :( However I am still hooping I just cant spin to the left for now or jump .
My first "sports-related injury" (the NP's term for it) was a torn calf muscle during a hoop session. I wasn't even hooping at the time, just dancing across the room to pick up a flyaway hoop. However, I'd already been hooping for over an hour, and my leg apparently had had enough for the day.
It took 5 weeks for the muscle to heal enough for me to get back in the hoop, but it's fine now. More recently, I hurt a foot doing a jumpthrough, but it's about healed.
Thanks - I'll try that!
I couldn't get an appointment with my doctor, and now I'm leaving for a trip (to NC and I will drop in to Baxter's local class in Carborro!) Anyone else hear of forearm RSI and gotten tx for it?
