I've been fairly active in my life (running, biking, rafting, weightlifting, desert backpacking (humping own water), and mountain trekking.

But the absolute WORST and most tenacious "injury" I have suffered is the damage done to neck, back, shoulder, hip, backside, arm, and hand(s) from sitting in front of my computer all day long.

My physical therapist says he can help make it less worse, but if I want it to go away I have to quit my job.

Told him I was trying just as hard as I could to make that happen.

For those who answered, "yes" to sports-related injuries, would you go back and do anything differently knowing what you know now?

In sports, I've dislocated both shoulders (football, volleyball, basketball, martial arts), torn my ACL (basketball), had pain from a ganglion in my wrist (shot putting), Osgood-Schlatters (that still hurts, probably exacerbated by basketball ages 12-15), broken literally half my toes (martial arts), sprained ankles (basketball, tennis), dislocated rib (martial arts), back muscular issues (martial arts), hip issues (martial arts), and bumps, bruises, scrapes and abrasions too numerous to remember.

Something always hurts, and I'm 34. Looking back on it, I don't see any way that I would have chosen to do anything differently. I enjoy physical sports, and I don't see that I could have done anything with less intensity. The alternative to this, is a less active me -- I tried that and ended up 65 pounds heavier.

Our high jump "pit" wasn't that great. But it WAS better than sawdust, or a bunch of old bed mattresses strewn about..........

One year three of our top long jumpers got hurt. Noone could figure out why until they started digging in the pit, and found a 94 POUND rock strategically buried at 20 feet or so. I guess it wasn't a concern because up until that time noone jumped over 20 feet........

The only sport I used to play a lot was tennis, and I don't have any injuries from it. But I stopped playing a lot when I was in my mid 20s. I rarely play now, and I never go "all out" to get to a ball like I used to.

I think the state of training is much more advanced these days. Most of the coaches at my school were of the "drill instructor/no pain-no gain" mindset.

Injuries...yeah...horseback riding related. Was it worth it, yes.

However moving and lifting furniture and boxes so many times in my life has taken its toll. That was no fun.
