BJJ may be the gentle art but that does't keep most of us from getting hurt now and then. What are some grappling related injuries that you have experienced? List your injury, how it happened and the amount of time it took to recover and get back on the mat. Here is my contribution and motivation to start this thread.... About a week ago my neck felt sore after the first roll in training. I managed to get through the practice but over the next 2 days the pain grew so severe that I ended up in the emergency room. Turns out I have a herniated disc thats pushing up against my c7 nerve causing lots of pain, numbness and muscle weakness in my right arm. After a cortisone shot and some acupuncture appointments I'm starting to feel a lot better but I'm looking at around 6 weeks until I can train again.
