Had a bit of a scare at the club this afternoon: in the middle of the rally (second match, so not entirely cold), suddenly felt a strong back pain, which pretty much forced me to immediately stop the play and sit down. Don't think I was doing anything unusual really, but it is what it is - feeling a bit better now, but for a while it felt quite scary, as if the simplest action of straightening up or turning became quite painful.

Took a couple of Ibuprofens, put on a hot/cold patch or whatever these are called, mixed a few stiff drinks too just to be sure :). Feels somewhat better now, but tomorrow will be the key, I guess. Probably will take it easy for the next week at the minimum.

Bummer. Was planning to go to a tournament in 2 weeks, and World Veterans Championship is in 2 months too...


I feel you re: the back injury. I ended up doing a few months of PT after my mishap at Westchester (and my subsequent foolishness getting back at the table too quickly).

Quick update - back pain subsided over the week, so I went to the club twice on the weekend. Was a bit cautious on Saturday, and more relaxed on Sunday, but so far it looks like I'm back to normal (phew! :sweat: ).

Playing tournament this coming weekend - considering playing up on Sunday in higher events to get a bit more exposure to stronger players in preparation for World Veterans in June. Not that it will make a huge difference, but still, one could hope...

Thanks goodness. ...nothing worse than back pain to throw your game.

Yes - and the most disturbing part of it how sudden and unexpected it was. One moment you are playing decent TT and not doing anything unusual, and the next you are afraid to make a step because it might hurt and then can't even sit straight without pain. Just proves how used we are to 'normal state of the body' and don't appreciate enough how much good health matters.
