Persistent Shin Soreness After 5 Days of Hot Water Massage - Question For Sylvie

Recommended Posts

I fought 7 days ago against a VERY strong kicker, he was about 10 lbs heavier than I am. I blocked a lot and after the fight, iced both shins for 48 hr, after that hit water massage 2 or 3 times a day, after that rub on namman muay or tiger balm. I even use compression wraps after that.. There's still fluid under my skin and shin soreness. See a doctor or any other healing advice, Sylvie? Much appreciated.

Hi. The way that you deal with this at this point depends on whether it is a "knot" (hard bump) or a pocket or dent with fluid. Can you take a photo of it and attach it in the reply? 

Also, I assume you are not kicking on it yet, right? 

I have a knot on my right shin and a dent with fluid below. On my left shin,  dent with fluid. No kicking correct. Everything else.

That knot needs more pressure during the draining with the hot water. The way you press it out can be tricky because doing it yourself might not be aggressive enough. Like trying to massage yourself or clean out a painful cut, we kind of pull back due to the pain, whereas having someone else help press it... well, someone else can be less "kind" haha. My trainer in Chiang Mai helped me sometimes, it was rough but it was necessary. Are you in Thailand?

Yes I train at Sit-Thailand gym. I'll have to ask someone to painfully massage it down i guess.

I thought I recognized you off your style of tattoos, haha. Kru Thailand will be able to help. It's going to suck, but it will improve quickly after the mass is broken down. Leave the one that's  a pocket alone, just use oil on that.

Congratulations on your fight as well.

In the early phase, remember PRICE:

P = Protection from further damage
R = Rest to avoid prolonging irritation
I = Ice (cold) for controlling pain, bleeding, and edema
C = Compression for support and controlling swelling
E = Elevation for decreasing bleeding and edema

How are they now?

Thanks for asking. My left shin still has a bubble of fluid, shin not too sore. Right shin is even better, hardly and fluid and 1/10 for soreness. Little hard bumps on the shin bones still. I try to rub a glass bottle down them daily to smooth it out.

Hi, this is an old thread but I'm still having swelling in my shin. I went to a doctor and they just gave me an ultrasound to help heal the bone. Randomly, the bone will be sore and throb, like this morning and last Sunday, but for months it wasn't sore at all, but fluid was still present. I'm scared it's forever f**ked up.

Did the doctor do any kind of imaging to see if there's a fracture? 

I do remember my bones randomly hurting, a deep throbbing, months after an injury to them. I have dimples and bumps all along the bones in both shins that you can feel when you press and run your finger down the length of them. Those definitely hurt when they were getting there, but I don't feel my shins almost at all anymore. The fluid is a bit concerning to me, just in that I can't remember that being a thing that I dealt with for a long time after getting the lumps out. That doesn't mean I didn't have it, I just don't remember it. I also fought ALL THE TIME, so maybe I didn't know where the swelling was coming from. Is it swollen all the time or it comes and goes? Is there a coin-sized center spot or soft spot that you can locate against the bone?

    • Hey.  So I’m gonna do a Kyukoshin tournament.  If anyone doesn’t know the ruleset it’s no punches, elbows to the head and no clinching.  Points are only awarded for dropping someone or causing a visible reaction so Ning is going to be key.  I’m wondering if anyone here has done one?  It’s my first actual full contact fight, all the kicks knees (head and body) and punches and elbows to the body are full force.   They have a very unique style of throwing punches and there’s a lot of crowding so my plan is to take angles as much as possible and keep tagging the legs and body with kicks and throw a few headkicks if they’re there.  I’m southpaw too.  I want to move into Muay Thai but this seemed like a good a time as any to get some experience trading full power strikes with slightly less risk of getting slept.  Plus my coach encouraged me to do it so he thinks I’m ready for it.     Thanks for reading!

    • One of the simplest ways to increase the pace of your kicks is to use ankle weights. They also increase the potency of your kicks. The benefits of using ankle weights during Muay Thai training are minimal. You just do any kicking drill you choose while wearing the weights around your legs. Your kicking strength and quickness can be increased even by shadowboxing with ankle weights. Your legs get heavier as a result of the ankle weight, so you must use more force to move at your usual speed. When you remove the ankle weights after being accustomed to throwing kicks while carrying that extra weight, your kicks will go much more quickly.

    • Chalamdam (red) took a decision win and title belt against Pitakpetch (blue) today at Channel 7. Here are the highlights.  Pitakpetch's gym owner said after the fight the he will follow suit with several other gyms who have withdrawn their fighters from Giatpetch promotions due to bad judging. Comments on all the various shares seem to agree with the sentiment that this promoter is unfair.  What do you see? https://fb.watch/fD2_PfhFDE/
    • And re the blessing of the mongkol...  In lack of true thai monks, you can try to get a blessing from someoene else creditable. Some person you held in great estime, whom is also a person with a feeling for spirituality.  Your grandma or grandda if they are still alive, otherwise your momma or dad... Or someone else whom you have connection with and do trust.   ps.  You did made your mongkol yourself.  But the same advice for all whom did buy their mongkol in a common shop.   Such is my belief.
    • Thank you 🙂 I asked my coach too ( Ganyao Arunleung) and in his golden age fashion said it doesn't matter, it's the heart that matters 😄😂💖 I told him Muay Thai is the love of my life (just don't tell my husband 😉😄). I think I'll put the amulet on the rim right before the tail comes together. Or I'll wear it with a necklace and find another for the Mongkol.  It will all come together as meant to be at the right time 🤞🏻
