    I would say it is definitely worth a try! If not helping, you can always take the vitamin I.

    Sorry, Vitamin I is slang for ibuprofen.
    You could try a fairly intensive round of natural supplements, but it would be hard to match the power of the drug. However, longer term, if you can find a natural regime that helps you feel better, it can only be good, and is certainly more sustainable to the body.

    I don't recall if you said how old you were, but a sad reality is that more and more body parts will hurt as time goes on. You can work around it, and you figure out what keeps your body feeling its best. This mean testing out some different ways of eating, noting how you feel as you eat that way over a period of time (note: this is a slow process!) and then keeping or discarding that scheme.

    For example, based on some reading I did, I tried wheat elimination. It was hard to change my diet like that so it took a while to get over the deprivation, find substitutes for the missing carbs, and then determine if I felt better or not. It took a couple of months, and a round of going back to eating wheat to determine that my body and brain did better, felt better, hurt less without wheat in my diet.

    An illumination diet. Yeah, I've heard and read a lot about those. I keep hearing that night shades are a possible source of inflammation.

    I think I'll start the conventional approach as soon as I get my ankle supports and just go on a course of ibuprofen.

    How long does a torn rotator cuff typically take to heal? I'm getting conflicting info. My torn supra is 3x5mm and I was told 6 weeks but I keep reading and hearing anything from several months to several years.

    To answer your question, Sure! I'm age 30. I tell you, I think that number is having an effect on my mind. I mean, part of my restlessness is having multiple joint pains and injury showing up in such a short space of time but also, at the back of mind is that number and the idea that that's it, from here on out my body is just going to degenerate over time. These multiple joint pains have served as a scary confirmation of that.

    Your mental approach makes a huge difference. If you approach these issues as challenges to overcome I really think you will be better off in the long run. If I focus on all of the things that hurt on any given day, I can easily talk myself out of a workout or talk myself out of spending an active day doing something I love. Honestly, 30 is not a big deal. I will agree that starting at about that age, I noticed I healed more slowly, but turning 30 did not reduce my ability to do anything I wanted to do. I run faster now than I did when I was 30, I'm stronger too. I've lost some flexibility, but only because I haven't focused on maintaining it as I should. Limited time means one must prioritize, and while it would beneficial, I just haven't done so.

    I don't mean to diminish what you are going through in anyway. I am saying that you can choose your approach, choose to explore solutions that help you feel better and be critical in reviewing the results you get so you can decide if you continue the intervention or toss it. In short, take a positive approach, explore, experiment, and resolve to keep going and to feel better. It may be trite, but there is power in positive thinking.

    Thank you, Sure! For your assurance. I like that you said you run faster than you did when you were 30. I am trying my best to be optimistic and see that I'm not dying yet. I still want to grow and develop so much more in my physical fitness and my martial arts. I also want to explore more physical activities and develop new skills and strengths. Part of what's bummed me out this year is when I had intentions to get into parkour. It was part of my plan to expand my horizon whereby I not only get to learn something new and inspiring with my body but also a way to engage and interact more through something I'm inspired by. I went to 3 sessions and flared up my shoulder (that was before I knew for sure that it was a torn rot cuff) I had stop that ambition dead in its track and on top of that, I've had to cut out so much of my training routines. No more shadow boxing and capoeira is something I miss so bad.

    I'm hoping that my shoulder will be well enough soon to start incorporating some upper exercises again.

    A damage or ‘wear and tear’ of articular (joint surface) fibrous usually accompanied by an over growing of cuboid tissue, reducing of the combined space, sclerosis or solidifying of cuboid tissue at the combined area, and problems in joints.

    Hey, an update on an old thread.

    I was just sifting through the forum and found my old thread and I thought that I would add some things I've discovered over the past 7-8 months since I started this thread.

    As some answers to my own question (in case this serves anyone with similar concerns), I've discovered that there are tons of alternative movement patterns that the body has in its arsenal and even some alternate movement patterns that can still promote whatever style of sport, exercise or physical activity one could be attached to.

    My fear at the time was that my body was beginning to break down and that over time I would lose the option to practice all the martial arts styles I love doing as well as the ruling out the options of taking on new physical activities that I'm eager to learn and develop some mad skills in also.

    What I've discovered (aside from the fact that I was neurotically paranoid, lol) is that this little conern of mine has turned into an opportunity to open my eyes at new ways of training and new attributes I can develop WITHOUT flaring up my tweaks in question.

    For instance, even though I've held off my kicking session, Ive discovered a cool alternative that is a killer workout for my hip, glutes and a little my core. It involves me practicing some slow and controlled kicks while kneeling on one knee and I'm enjoying the proprioception work too. I've also experimented with parry dominant wing chun and cover dominant boxing sessions (obviously shadow sessions) and I've also taken up break dancing. I've drawn some inspiration from that and have developed a kicking routine from the squat position of breaking.

    Looking back, I'm realizing how rigid I was in the way I trained and now I'm seeing things in a new perspective. There were a few mindset realisations and a few lessons learnt about the way I was framing things.

    Anyway, thanks again to crazyoldguy and sure! for your input and support.

    Clinton

    I'm not sure if you are still having issues with your ankles and thumbs, but if so, you should check out whole body cryotherapy. Cryotherapy uses nitrogen vapor to lower the skin's temperatures by 30 to 50 degrees. Once your skin's temperature is lowered, a message is sent to the brain to react with natural regulatory functions. This is when anti-inflammatory molecules, endorphins, and toxins are released and oxygen circulation increases in the bloodstream. Cryotherapy is a great, noninvasive, and natural way to help your body heal. Not only will your ankles and thumbs not be inflamed, but your mood will increase.
