Look juke, I didn’t intend for this to go down the toilet. I didn’t post this to brag.

It was just sharing an event.

What I have no regerts about is taking action to insure what happened to me didn’t happen to anyone else.

I would also highlight that I’m probably going to be a lot more cautious in the future so it is unlikely I will gash my head again.

I did what I did purely to make sure nobody else had an injury from that particular pointy branch. It had a .00000001 % effect on the play of the hole. I’m not a child. My decision making skills are quite solid.

Of course trees are not evil —lighten up.

With regard to the course—yes I’m a relatively new player. I have sought on multiple occasions to identify those that work on the course. Strangely enough it has not been easy to find them.

There is a Facebook page but it was last updated in May. So, given the drama here I sent a message to said page. Said i would be happy to assist if they are doing course work.

The response was basically no worries, it’s a labor of love.

I still intend to contribute to the course.

In the same situation I would do exactly the same thing.

If that's there's a Gopher hole obviously you should put a stick in it.

Update time...Looks like surgery is not recommended. Some of you may know a lot about this--I'm learning. This is what I learned today.

The bicep attaches below the elbow (distal end) and at the shoulder (proximal end). The distal end has a single attachment point AKA insertion point. The proximal end has two insertion points. A tear on the distal end requires repair as the muscle can no longer function. On the proximal end, a tear of one insertion point is frequently left alone and the person recovers to essentially normal function. The remaining intact tendon does more work and it is possible that there may be some slight weakness, but full recovery is generally 4 to 5 weeks. Limited activity for a couple of weeks.

They only do surgery to fix it if you have complications (pain and weakness) or aesthetics such as body builders.

There are times when a person is dealing with tendon issues that they will actually cut the tendon to relieve pain.

I admit I am a bit concerned about this moving forward and playing disc golf. I don't know if playing a lot of DG had a negative impact on the tendon making it weaker and thus being some part of the root cause.

I have beat up my shoulder pretty good over the years, separations, dislocations, torn ligament surgically repaired. But, it's been doing pretty well. Sometimes a little painful, but I didn't expect the tendon to pop.



Has anyone here been through something like this? Playing with a ruptured proximal tendon? What's it like?

I am assuming you told your provider that you play DG, explaining/showing the motions if necessary. Did they not recommend resting the joint for the 4 weeks or so?

Yes, there is some down time, but in reality, that’s just to allow me time to get used to it.

I am getting a second opinion just to make sure. The motion is a concern. Not that the bicep and tendon are a big part of the the throw, but they will be exposed to the repetition.

I’ll keep sharing as I learn more.

Don't know if you throw FH, but that and putting can actually put good stress on that joint as well, depending on styles, so caution is in order. I'd rather throw lefty for a month or two and pick back up than go the Simon route and push too early, and be permanently affected.

As far as not being a big part of the throw--think of the force you exert right when the disc is released on a RHBH throw. Your right arm is wanting to go forward at some big number MPH. The only thing stopping your arm from detaching from your body is the...shoulder joint and tendons. We don't think about it if the joint is strong. But if not...

Thanks.

The PA was explaining the biceps primary function is actually supination. The secondary function is contraction.

One of the biggest problems in general is repetitive motion injury. Ligaments and tendons become irritated, swollen, painful.

Anyway, there is an actual procedure—I think it’s a tenotomy in which they intentional release the tendon to eliminate pain. I just did it by accident.

I’ll be playing lefty for a while.
