Broken nose, need help.

Discussion in 'Standup Technique' started by dangerousdave, Aug 13, 2005.

  1. I broke my nose last year in training and since then I didn't fight for six months but now it seems as though its very weak. Is it easier for it to break now since this incident? has anyone else had their nose broke and how has it effected your stand-up. I have a big fight coming up in september 'semi proffesional'. Any advice and replys would be much appreciated

  4. Yes, I didn't take any title fights, but I pretty much go full pelt in training. I suffered the injury due to a knee to the nose, I ran right into it when I went for the single leg take down. It was the first time and the last time. Are you trying to insinuate I am some sort of pussy? Listen guys I,m just looking for some friendly feed-back, thats all.
     
  5. Thanks brother, but I have been boxing since I was six. Really what I am asking for is a little insight from others who may have experienced something like this and do they think they would be susceptable to getting their nose broke easier from being hit.

    Yeah bro your Nose will always be somewhat weaker than before. And there isnt anything you can do about it. I have broken mine three times, and each time it has broken since the first it takes less and less force to break, and it always breaks in the same place. The only thing in my opinion that you can do is just live with it, it sucks but it is what it is.
     
  7. Thanks bro.

    I always heard that when a bone breaks, it comes back stronger...
     
  9. Yea, I heard that too, but I now know that it dosn't apply to the nose.

    Was it fixed properly at the time? usualy they rebreak it, then set it again. If they didnt sort it, i suggest you do very soon so it has a chance to heal before the fight.

    That doesn't sound right to me at all. If anything, something that's been injured is typically more prone to subsequent re-injury.

    Warm it up before you fight. I'm not saying hit it, just push it inside and left-right (Gee that sounded weird...) for some 4-5 mins before you fight to make it soft. I don't know your style, but try to get as few straight blows in as you can. For further conditioning try to touch-push your nose against the floor when you do push-ups, like simulating hits. Not anything mental, just so that you can feel the blow.
    And I don't know what's your nose like, but six months out for a broken nose sounds a bit too much to me too, to be honest. But then again a knee to the nose is probably a different story than say a cross, so i don't know.
    Best of luck for your fight.

    Lmao, A bone in the nose. Did you guys know the nose was full of cartalidge not bone. Hence the reason that it will not grow back stronger.
     
  14. Not all of the nose is full of cartalidge.
     
  15. Thankyou!
