Hmmm....I don't think this cocktail is a recipe that everyone will find helpful.Do you stretch out and warm up beforehand? I am 54, and that makes a big difference for me. My nephew is about 30, but with some back problems from pitching baseball, and he hurt his back by not warming up, and then trying to throw his first throw really hard. Also, doctor recommended and really helps me heal quick when my back is hurting - 1 Tylenol Arthritis taken together with 2 Ibuprofen. I am sure using good form makes a difference, too, but throwing involves back, knees, shoulders, arm, etc., and at some point, even with good form, we will all face father time and our aches and pains from many years will catch up with us. I love basketball, but sadly, 1-2 years ago I got to where my knees just can’t take the pounding any more.
My mother’s ex got that from his doctor as, “Don’t spread this around - most doctors won’t tell you about it, and it might hurt my business - but try it for your back pain” - 1 Tylenol Arthritis and 2 Ibuprofen taken together. He said it worked amazing for his back pain, which he had often, I tried it, and it worked amazing for mine several times, depending which kind of back pain I have. Been 2-3 years since I had any back pain, and I can’t remember if it helps upper or lower, but for me, the right one, I have had the kind of back pain I know would hurt for weeks, and this on the first day knocked it way down, and gone in a few days. If I get either upper or lower back pain, I try it immediately, and just hope it is the right one. One it helps a ton, and the other it doesn’t do much at all - IDK why, but that’s my experience with it.Hmmm....I don't think this cocktail is a recipe that everyone will find helpful.
First, Tylenol Arthritis is simply, two regular Tylenol. Tylenol 325mg, Tylenol Extra Strength 500mg, Tylenol Arthritis 650mg.
Second, you shouldn’t take both acetaminophen and ibuprofen at the same time. At least by recommendation of physicians and the manufacturers. The idea is to alternate between the two medicines. So, how close together can you take Tylenol and ibuprofen? Take one first and then four to six hours later take the other. They both do work differently and are helpful for different pain.
Third, if you are a drinker, there are far better analgesics/NSAIDS than Tylenol, since it is processed through the liver.
I think it is important to provide proper education, when dispensing medication advice.
i'll be 65 in January and i have been playing catch and then DG since i got my first Frisbee as a Christmas present in 1965 (i still have it!). between working 60 hrs a week average for 25 yrs in industrial metals and a high speed motorcycle crash in the mid 80's it hurts to get out of bed and goes downhill from there.You have some good suggestions above, especially about listening to a doctor first. As an older player my pain usually comes when I start playing after too much time off. I need to play frequently and/or do other exercise to maintain enough muscle strength and flexibility to avoid pain. Once a week is not enough for me to play without pain. I need to play at least three or four times a week to maintain conditioning to play without pain.
