    Alrite, yesterday while pole vaulting, I was learning to bend the pole...and twice, instead of collapsing my left arm (hbottom arm) , i left it straight, and all of the recoil basically went back into my deltoid.

    So, basically does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? It hurts a bit when I try to lift some stuff;nothing too bad but its a nuisance...and I couldn't vault for my life today.

    Ice, figure out how to stretch it or something...

    Ice, rest and elevation are the accepted procedures for injuries, but you can't elevate your deltoids.;)

    Anyway, try the ice and rest. I'm thinking maybe some light massage would help too. If you don't feel better in a few days, ask your coach's advice.

    Yeah, as long as its not like what happened to my lower hamstrings - not sure what happened, but took forever to heal....at least I got out of doing cashier at work (grocery store) and get to push carts instead...

    Oh well, meet on Wednesday - I'm going to be mad if I don't get better by then...:p

    On the other hand, I foudn out I can still play DB and BG pretty easily without any pain :D
