While I’m dealing with my first major sports injury, it’s amazing I got through this many years of contact sports without any minor or serious injuries or problems.
My father was a hockey player plus worked his way up to the minor leagues before quitting to start a family with my mother.
He had at least many concussions, multiple broken teeth, plus a bunch of broken bones in his arms, legs, plus torso. It’s apparent that he’s feeling the after effects of these injuries this many years down the road. And while getting a sports injury is painful enough physically, it’s also rough when it takes you out of a season plus you can no longer play on the team that you devote so much time to. I’m lucky that my injury didn’t permanently remove my ability to walk. I was hit by many players from 3 unusual instruction plus herniated a bunch of discs in my back. Right now I’m slowly working through my physical therapy sessions. It’s difficult even though I guess that the harder I work, the quicker I’ll get back to being on my team again. Unfortunately, the pain can be fairly intimidating at times. They supply myself and others Tylenol plus Advil, but they’re not enough to relieve the discomfort. Thus far, CBD has been my most effective pain reliever outside of prescription painkillers. It’s amazing how much the endocannabinoid system regulates the perception of pain in the body. CBD seems to be the most effective cannabinoid for pain relief as well. I’ll keep consuming as much CBD as I need to get through the reusey stage of this sports injury.
