Gym remedies for injuries, illness and other ailments

Recommended Posts

Hi! Since I gathered a lot of expeirence getting injured and sick while training, I thought I would start a new topic, namely: gym/trainer advice received on how to care for injuries or ailments. 

I will start with a couple of things I have been told and their origin. 

  • Swollen, painful knuckles: massage with hot water and salt (western boxing coach, Sweden)
  • Ligament or muscle issues: Ice bath with salt. Eat potatoes and ocra/lady fingers. (lethwei trainer, Myanmar)
  • Any kind of muscle pain: warm water massage (basically all muay thai trainers, Thailand)
  • Cough: gurgle with warm salt water (muay thai trainer, Thailand)
  • Shin dents: gentle warm water massage downward motion (muay thai trainers, Thailand)
  • Prevent skin rashes of any kind: rinse water directly after training then apply baby powder (muay thai trainer, Thailand)
  • Pink eye: stay away, absolutely no clinching, hot water compress (muay thai trainers, Thailand)
