  • deadleg rehab

    Any suggestions on rehab for deadleg? Saturday a recieved a descending shin kick to the top of my left thigh. Figured it was just a Charlie horse and would begone by the next day. Nope, hurts like Hell still. Any thoughts on how long I should keep it wrapped and iced? When should I be able to resume squating? Etc.
    Overtraining should be one of the lowest concerns. You should focus on optimal training.

    A shin kick straight to the meat of your thigh could really do a lot of damage. Mostly bruising, but the extent of which I have no idea. How's the leg looking? If it's been a few days you can likely switch over to heat wraps to help move that bruising along and to speed up the healing by getting good blood in there.

      No bruising on surface. Damage is down near the bone. I think the swelling has gone down. I probably will switch to heat. Still hurts

        I took a new straight to the heart of the quad a while back. My first 2 days including immediately after were ice and aleve. I use ice 20 on and at least 20 off. I also took aleve 4 pills 3 or 4 times a day. You have to try and stretch it throughout the day and it should progressively get better.

          ^^^^^ today is the first day I've been able to stretch it much. It's getting better though, first few days felt like my quads were torn in half.

              Doesn't sound like you're in trouble, but we recently had a local hockey player end up with compartment syndrome after a knee to his thigh...probably not far off from the type of injury you experienced. At least have a read.

                Nasty stuff there, glad I didn't read that a few days ago when the pain was real bad.

                The wiki page on said it could be associated with creatine use.
