I never fall or get hurt in jumps, or playing around fast.
But, as soon as I get interested in footwork again, I
get the ***beat out of me from hard stupid falls. I've
got my back cross strokes fairly well now, so today I
get careless and go down on my back like a sack of
bricks. Back hurts, wrist is swollen, jaw is bruised, and
all I was doing was trying to get maximum lean back in
the cross stroke turn. Stupid.

Owwww.  Poor you; that sort of fall is always the worst.

I do wish you better very quickly.  Arnica helps.

Vitamin M, aka Motrin or Ibuprofen.  Get well soon and remember to bend the
knees when you lean back.

I've also heard the arnica works.  Take care, and hope you are back on
ice quickly. (I still have a funny part behind my R knee from when I
fell doing, as my coach told me, "absolutely the MOST basic footwork
there could be". Oh well.)

Ouch!  Been there, done that!!!

I recommend some Sombra for the back.  It's like Ben Gay, only it's in a
lotion form (instead of the oily greasy form) and really gets into the
skin!  Oh, and if you put it on in the morning and take a very warm
shower in the afternoon or evening, the Sombra will reactivate itself!
KEWL, huh?  (Don't get it in the eyes though... this is strong stuff!!!)

Get well soon!

Cheers,
Joanna
