The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I've been playing big disc golf and mini disc golf for 20 years. I think it isphysically catching up with me now. Lately I have experieced shoulder pain and believe it or not FINGER pain. The finger affected is the middle finger after an aggressive release. A "stinger"! I found myself unable to throw big disc for several weeks. I can throw minis all day long due to the different grips of mini play. Anyway... turns out I have aquired something the hand specialist called Trigger Finger. It is a build up and inflamation of tendons. You can tell you have it when you can feel "clicking" when moving a specific digit. I had the unfortunate experience today of the dreaded Cordizone shot! They are one NASTY shot! It better work, the VTI Match play at Hawk Hollow is the end of March an awesome event to compete in if you get the chance.
I was wondering what kinds of aches and pains other disc golfers are experiencing and what they do to either avoid or treat the problem.

Cordizone works pretty well takes a few days though. Sometimes it could take 2 to 3 treatments though. Some docs give a heinz 57 mix with the injections that work better than straight Cordizine. I've had those for my back. To bad they only last a few months. You should also ice the arm and finger soon after your round. It cuts down on the swelling alot.
No arm or finger problems for me thank god!
Good luck
Well I have just been playing for about 3 months or so and aches and pains seem to be the norm and being 48 does not help. I played a ice bowl(first ever) 2 weeks ago and racked my elbow. Not sure exactly what I did but it hurt bad and actually bruised the under part of my arm above the elbow. I am now in the process of trying to heal it up. I tried to throw this past weekend and hurt it again so now I am taking a 4 week break from throwing to see where I am at. I been putting heat on it and that seems to keep it from hurting to bad. The worst part is i was just starting to feel the snap and form and now I guess I will have to start all over in a month if it heals ok. Well fishing season is here so I got that to fall back on but i am bummed not being able to play!!!
I throw Disc more than 20 years, too.
Because I have hurt a shoulder by baseball, I am weak in an up side.
And because there is lumbago, there was the thing that I cannot get up when I am terrible.
I tried various methods.
And there are two methods how I wrestle with now.
One is muscular strength up.
It is the cure that used Oriental medicine one more.
The Oriental thought is the thought that I treat before worsening not curing the disease that became bad.
I cure non-illness.
Can you understand this way of thinking?
I just started playing last july, I started getting some shoulder pain and forearm pain. we sometimes throw 54 holes in one day and I think thats when I really hurt but I just love playing this sport it seem like I dont get enough!
You are right. Treat it before it becomes a problem!

I throw a lot of side arm and I don't think the left side of my body is keeping up cause I have these weird cramps in my left rib cage.
