I got PWNED (and injured) (Question Inside...)

I was at my game last night and we were playing this actually decent team, they have a phenominal goalie and a 6'6" defender who is fantastic. I was in the offensive zone trying to screen the goalie and out of nowhere this tank comes crushing me down to the ice, I didn't have the puck, I wasn't getting the puck, and this guy who's probably 250lbs comes from the side and lays me out flat. I have a terrible back and the first thing I felt trying to get up was where I tore it a while ago. It was stiff and it stung. I think I may have done something to it again because it's really tight and I cant walk without limping. I'm puting ice on it but is there anything else I should do (I'm getting it massaged alot too)?

I've had back problems alot before, but now it's not surgical... it's just sore so I just need some remedies that works. I'll probably miss 5-10 games now too. I'm gonna coach.

Well...the massage helps def...and if you get stiffness, it sounds lame, but yoga has been known to help.

Maybe you don't need to switch leagues after all?

They have these people now called chiropractors who can fix your back so you don't walk around complaining that you have a bad back. If you don't have insurance they will take cash.

You should go to a doctor and get it checked out.

I was in the same situation this summer and now I have to quit school temporarely because the injury worsened to a point where I can't sit for more then 30 minutes.


If you have inflammation, a massage therapist can actually worsen your situation. You should go to a doctor, ask for physiotherapy and go to a chiro to ensure your spinal alignement is good.


Do NOT try to crack your back, lift heavy things or do heavy exercices. You can put some ice on and off for 15 minutes, heat/cold therapy's usually good to calm the swelling and stiffness.

Seriously, back injuries can degenerate fast and trust me when I tell you they can be more painfull then anything you've felt before if your nerve gets irritated.

Forget the chiropractor. It sounds like it could be something more serious that they could fix. Go stratight to an orthopaedic/sprots medicine Doc. I agree too about the massage. Forego those until you really know what the injury is. Depending on the injury, that could just make it worse.

Wait a day to see if it get's any better, if not then get it checked out like others say.

Only things I do are: take a muscle relaxer or advil (or anything stronger you might have in the US), hot showers, hot pads, then the next day or awhile after switch to cold I hear.


I just hurt my back at the gym yesterday and its feeling so much better with robaxacet and a got shower

Oh yeah, nerve pain is the worst! I had problems with sciatica when I was expecting our daughter, and that was more painful than the delivery! (I'd share more, but pretty sure no one here wants to hear about that...)....

might not be the answer you want, but Yoga is saving me a ton of trouble. Best thing I've ever taken up.

Trust me, I've been going through a bad case of sciatica since November and I have even more respect then I used to for pregnant women. I've had some blood vessel bursts before and subsequent clean ups without anasthetic and I can safely say sciatica pain is a lot more painfull. I had improper alignement though + a sprain.

Pilates are great as well, so is swimming (when you're ready). Swiss ball exercices have helped me reduce the pain by half.

If you've cracked a vertabrae or ruptured a disc you'd pray is was just a torn muscle....

Please, please tell me you have never worked out and used a nautilus machine for adductors/abductors.

I'm interested in this. Sciatica usually occurs when the piriformis, or surrounding muscle(s), compress the nerve. How does improper alignment cause sciatica?

Just stretch out your back for like 10 minutes MORE before and after physical activity. That usually helps me when my back starts to act up.
