    activities work. Working out. Some sports when I was younger.

    ailments bad back lower and upper, bad shoulder, bad groin. Some minor knee issues

    pretty much any and all injuries can be attributed to something I did at work. Used to play alot of sports in high school. But at that age you barely feel things and you heal really quickly. In my opinion.

    Getting older sucks. It takes less and less to throw something out, and longer and longer for it to heal. Then when it does heal it usually only seems to sort of partially heal and become something you can re injure with alarming ease. These kind of things dont happen when you are 18 or 20 years old.

    Activities: highschool football, track, basketball, varsity basketball, boxing,karate, three day raves, construction work.

    Right knee gets a bit wonky when it rains, but it's not so bad now that I've moved from Van too Southwest Ontario.

    Left shoulder gets sore from hours of handling the chipper and the gas-axe.

    Playing games with my serotonin levels in my twenties to the riddim of Congo Natty in warehouse raves has stunted my emotional maturity to the extent that I'll probably never have a wholesome enduring relationship.

    But I'm forty and can still dunk and draw double teams on the low block, am nice from fifteen feet out. I'm the Garnnet of my Men's League, and I'm not bad for an old man. :)

    Work and gym.

    2 bum shoulders, a knee that clicks everytime I bend it, and a lower back to goes out frequently.
    My shoulders are the worst. My left trap was injured from the gym and resulted in phases of a constant burning sensation, especially if I stand in place for any length of time. I've had that injury for about 7 years.
    My right shoulder has been deteriorating over the past 6 months. Mostly due to carrying heavy ladders and lots of overhead labor and drilling. I'm not sure what's wrong with it but the entire thing hurts anytime I pick something up or extend my arm above my chest.

    Getting old fucking sucks.

    29.

    Frequent weight lifting, running, hiking etc since my late teens, always an active kid before this.

    No ailments yet, I had mild tendinitis last year in my right knee from jumping rope too often on concrete like an idiot. Cleared up after a few weeks. I eat very well and sleep a lot which I think has held me together so far. I haven't even noticed any difference to my recovery yet, though I am sure it's coming. I want to age like Kelly Slater or Bernard Hopkins. There might be a genetic component going on as my father is in his sixties, is very active and as far as I know in perfect health. I can't remember him having any major injury at all.

    sand Volleyball, Dodgeball, Softball, flag football.

    Used to have constant knee pain because my knee cap doesn't line up right. Physical therapy fixed that actually.

    Slight back pain from being too cheap to replace my mattress.

    Going down my stairs in the morning is rough on my ankles but I'm decent otherwise.

    I'm 35 and at various points in my life I have done weight lifting, kickboxing, judo, running, rock climbing, smoking, excessive drinking, excessively taking class A drugs.

    no problems up to now but I feel I may have a few stored up for old age.

    I have what I would call a weak, or slightly painful lower back due to a hit in HS football.

    I have one shoulder that still has a weird weak/painful spot in it when I move it a certain way...due to being thrown on it in HS wrestling.

    My stomach is kind of sour fairly often and I'm on daily acid reducer medicine due to assloads of drinking in college and my 20's.

    I have a dead hemorrhoid from cycling. It's not active and doesn't hurt, but it also doesn't really go away...I will never be an asshole model.

    Plantar faciitis flares up on my foot sometimes when I'm running a lot.

    That's about it...overall not too bad.

    I'm in my 30's. I have plenty of sports injuries. I played basketball, baseball and tennis. I studied exercise in college and found Edythe Heus. She is at Revolution in Motion. Her workouts saved my body and keep me moving and healthy. She is one of the authors (along with Marv Marinovich) on a book called ProBodX. I will never quit doing that workout because of the way it helps my injuries.
