    Common training injuries

    Good morning everyone!

    I have a strange request, but I figured if anybody were to know the answers it would those who have probably lived it.

    One of my day jobs is running a Massage and Bodywork school specializing in injury rehabilitation and athletes and Im currently revamping our clinical pathology protocols.

    What Im looking for is a listing of common injuries suffered through MMA, JJJ, BJJ, etc training and competitions. I can guess some obvious ones, but to better serve the growing fighting trends of the modern athlete and to build more useful and effective sports massage therapist Id like to get some insider information. Not being an MMAr myself puts me at a bit of a disadvantage for knowing the ins and outs of damage sustained throughout this type of training and competition. Hence why Ive come to you

    Thanks for your time, guys and gals. I appreciate it!

    Josh

    I'll go through my judo dojo for reference.

    I have a weird left toe, not sure what's wrong. Hurts to crack that knuckle. Similar issue with my left thumb. Left shoulder got sprained / deeply bruised after I got slammed at a tournament. That's it for me.

    Dojo mates: ACL torn from turning with foot planted, MCL sprained from a bad landing, ankle broken from a misstep, tennis elbow/sprained from a number of judo and work issues, strained middle back from work and forward rolls, broken thumb at a tournament, twinged lower back from seoinage.

    We've got a lot of older guys.

    My wrists are pretty badly torn up now from doing chin na. Other people I train with have also had similar complaints.

    I think I downloaded a PDF or DOC from judoinfo.com that outlined concussion rates in judo, and they may have had another that discussed the commonality of other injuries in the sport.

    I've had a few minor concussions from going a little too hard in sparring. Developed a bone spur on the joint of the big toe on my left foot from turning over on it wrong or something while throwing my cross. Bruising on the tops of my feet from catching elbows when people block, bruising on my shins from checking kicks. Two broken metacarpals in my right hand from landing a hook wrong, multiple sprained wrists from hitting the bottom of the heavybag. Lots of misc. minor injuries. Never any big ones while doing combat sports - those all came from normal, 'safe' sports.

    Personally: boxers fracture on my left hand, slight jaw problems (from being punched with my mouth open), various other hairline fractures on shins, forearms, tendon problems on right elbow etc etc. Nothing too bad.

    Club: Torn ACL, broken noses, various other fractures on hands and shins, not sure about whether there were broken ribs or injuries to the diaphragm from knees to the solar plexus, but its very probable. will double check with my trainer today.

    Jesus, start taking care of yourself, old man.

    And you mean metatarsals and metacarpals. Not the same thing.
