As I get older and sit here typing this at my desk while popping my shoulder repeatedly two things keep popping into my head (no pun intended).. The first is I can't believe how many players on my team are injured right now. The second thing is I can't wait to get home to my ice pack. lol
As we all know dodgeball is riddled with injuries. I've been fortunate enough to keep mine to a minimum.. two dislocated toes that popped back into place in my shoe, perpetually jammed pinky fingers, broken bersa in my elbow and some come and go shoulder pain that rarely shows its face. Not bad for a 35 year old dude who throws himself around the court pretty repeatedly trying to hang with 20 year olds! lol Chances are you won't need this article until you are injured or old.. just keep it in mind. :)
In order to remain relatively injury free I use a variety of of old man stuff. I recommend these things to the older players, but more importantly to the younger players since they seem to be the one's getting injured way more than myself. I look at these guys and think how the hell are they going to make it to my age playing. That being said I'd like to share with you the crap that keeps me alive and by alive I mean able to play at a relatively competitive level. The links I'm providing are just for reference and I am not suggesting you purchase from them or at the price they are offering. Look around you could find a great deal!
