How to heal/recover from injuries?

Recommended Posts

Hello to all the Nak Muay. I have been practicing Muay Thai for few years, I have always admired those fighters able have a strong body/stamina when come to practice and fight.
So few years back then, I tried to register a semi pro fight, it is a great and worst experience to me throughout my life hahahah, I enjoyed and suffered a lot during the process.
Since I was not a great athlete and my first time. I get a lot of injuries/sprain throughout my training, which lead to my main topic here, how did you recover/ heal your injuries during the training and post-fight?
I had been carrying the injuries for few years and I went for few acupuncture sections and massage. It partially help, but does not fully recover from how I used to be. The injuries limited my strength and movement and became a burden even a stretching.

Please kindly advice/share me your experiences, I wish to get rid of it.  Thank you 😊

Every injury is different, but a big part of my approach has been warm water massage, especially for shins, and to not use rest too much. Instead, active recovery:

 

 

You can also read this article I wrote a few years ago, which details my injuries and some of how I responded to them:

A possible try is with a friendly cat!

Its an old house cure cat skin is good for rheumatism.  The fact is, an alive, friendly cat, is even better!!!

What is,  you must have a cat whom likes to sleep on you...  🙂

 

OK, a lesser known fact, is cats and their purring helps also to heal fractures and sprains.  These are oh so common with hard training athlethes and - of course - fighters...

There are even scientific studies telling the cat purring is in a frequence near the ideal for helping bone fissures to heal...

 

Its possible a loving, friendly dog could do something similiar...  But this is speculation.  On cats Im fairly sure.

 

In both cases a good bet is to take care of a cat / dog whom is it pity about.  From a high kill shelter; or a homeless whom seeks your help.

It helps much your karma, and it may help up your health.

The technique is the focus in martial arts, just power will not do you any good without proper technique. Actually, these two are connected, the required power in your strikes will not come until your technique is not correct. Proper technique is the base of generates power. Learning your techniques properly will not only improve your striking and generate power in the strikes but also make you avoid injury. With so much training and precise measurements taken with time the techniques, you are learning become second nature. This makes your body move on its own, thus avoid injuries. Of course, you are depending on your trainer for that. Trainers and instructors have reached the apex where they are suitable enough to teach you. Meaning, your grooming and how you will perform deeply depends on the instructor and you should choose the one that has such qualities.
