Coming back from Injury
I'm coming back from an injury I sustained about 2 and half months ago. I broke my left arm, in specific, the ulna bone. The exact term was a broken olecranon. I got the cast off about 2 and a half weeks ago and have been working on getting my range of motion back.

I have a game on Aug. 16 and was hoping to be back by then. I play goalie for my team and was curious as to what kind of drills i could do to strength my arm back up (it's my glove hand). Also, i was curious if anyone knew some drills i could do at home for flexability, so that I don't look like a complete fool in my return.

I'm pretty much under the understanding that it may not be pretty upon my return, so i'm hoping to find a open skate to get some work in. Thanks to anyone who responds or reads this thread.

Be cautious with that ... you don't want to cause another injury. I am not a goalie and really have no drill advice .... I know I am so helpful right?

I can say with certainty that you should be absolutely certain you are completely healed before even playing. I took the extra time for a torn bicep and have been playing a lot lately with NO troubles.

Good luck!

Try using a stress ball. That's what I did for about 2 weeks straight when I broke my arm.

Thanks. I've been using a stressball and a theraband currently for my arm each day. I'm hopin to get out this week and get a few tennisballs, and have someone throw them off the wall, so i can work on reaction times w/ the arm that I broke.

I'll still be rusty on Sunday, but I'm just hoping if i can get positioning on the shots, that I should be able to correl most of the shots off the stomach.

It'll just suck trying to play the puck, since i always played the puck in goal before the injury. I'm a left handed shot, so it's easy for me to play it
