I am a gymnastics professor & run our own gym. I work with kids of all ages, teaching them uncommon gymnastic skills. It is our job to not only help them advance however keep them safe as they attempt more taxing maneuvers. In order to effectively spot them, I am diligent about our own level of fitness! However, some injuries are unavoidable. About a year ago, I was spotting a class of teenaged men as they performed round-off back handSprings. One of the men unexpectedly veered off course. I needed to over-extend our body to guide his movement & ensure his safety. I felt a slight twinge in our upper right leg, however didn’t think anything of it; Later that night, the pain escalated, & I realized that I’d torn our psoas muscle. This muscle extends from the buttocks, down the leg, all the way to the knee. The pain was excruciating. It hurt to sit, to walk or lie down! Standing was barely tolerable. I could not drive, work or even sleep respectfully. I am lucky that I already had a valid medical mairjuana card. I’d gotten it because of occasional bouts of insomnia & migraines. This allowed me to shop at the dispensary for plant-based pain relieving remedies. I bought a combination of cannabis-infused ointments, roll-ons, tinctures & bath bombs. The bath bomb was especially helpful. Along with cannabis, the bath bomb contained epsom salts & essential oils such as eucalyptus. The hot water helped to open our pores & accelerate the absorption of cannabinoids such as CBD & CBN.
