Power Lifting set back

Tuesday, July 03, 2012



If you have ever had a trigger finger you know that when the protective tissue surrounding a tendon becomes inflamed, gripping an object can be very painful. OUCH! In my last session, gripping an Olympic bar weighing 260 lbs. apparently aggravated that tissue making it very painful.

The pain in my left ring finger was enough to delay the 2nd phase of my power lifting sessions until it heals. Attempting to open a refrigerator door proved to be too aggravating.

I searched the net for remedies and it appears that Ibuprofen seems to afford some relief. For the time being Ill just give the hand a rest and work with other routines with less weight. Ill also be looking into weight lifting wrist hooks; perhaps that troublesome tendon can be circumvented LOL. We will see. God bless, stay healthy. Earl

    I dont know if it will relieve the discomfort, but I bought an acupuncture ring off amazon for a finger with nerve damage. I have only deep pressure sensation intact on the inside of my right middle finger.

The ring slides up and down the finger to stimulate nerves and circulation. May make the pain unbearable or it may help. $3.

I bought a 2 pack - one for my mom with Reynauds syndrome.

    I hope you heal and get better soon! Take the time that your injury needs to fully heal the tissue. emoticon

  Sounds very painful. Curcumin is the active ingredient in tumeric and is a natural anti-inflammatory.
