stronger than dirt


« on: October 15, 2006, 02:36:18 AM »

Any help would be greatly appreciated..... I have very, very uneven strength when it comes to my upper body, and I am sure that it has to do with nerve damage that I suffered in my right triceps, and my right shoulder. It is so ridiculously "uneven", example: I do the 120 s for incline presses. Before this injury, I could manage to do about 12-14 reps. Now after the injury I can do maybe 3 with my right arm, but I can keep going to about 15 with my left arm. What I am asking is does anybody know of a way to rehab this right side to bring it up to the same strength as the left side? I am much obliged to any one that has an answer. Thanks.

this definitely has to do with the nerve damage.  how long ago did you injure your arm?

after my nerve injury (neck & arm), it took me several months to get back to where i had been.  right now (after over a year) my left arm is just a tad weaker on the bench press, i can do the same amount of reps as with the right arm, but lack this extra push to finish the movement at the very top on the last 1-2 reps, same story with shoulder presses.

i took ten or so physical therapy sessions and i am still taking massage once a week, more as a precaution against a new injury rather than a fix for the old one.

the bottom line is just be patient and wait.  the feeling in your arm should return in time.  ice the affected area twice a day, take an ice cube and rub back and forth along your arm until it melts away, go through 3-4 ice cubes, twice a day.

 Thanks, it was one of those injuries that was "accumulating", (I guess you could say), over a matter of time. I believe it is the back side of my triceps. I'll try your advise, thanks.
