Yet another leftside injury....

I have this strange thing, that I get all my injuries in the left side of my body. I have injured almost every left part of me and almost none of the right ones. Toe, ankle, knee, hip, ribs, shoulder, elbow, fingers, neck.... I even have some cauliflower on my left ear only! :D

The past two weeks, I got another two leftside injuries for the collection. During a takedown setup, I stretched some muscles in my left shoulderblade, and this sunday I sprained my left ancle during a takedown where my foot got caught in a wrong position. The shoulder is fine now, but the ankle needs a few more days of ice and rest, before I can start using it again.

Less rolling = more pullups, so it is all good :)

pretty soon the time will come where you will have to turn your entire injury-ridden left side ... BIONIC! :)

Montes, while my left side is injured, I make sure to train my right side double the amount. My Kung Fu is strong, friend. We will meet soon. It will be our final battle.

This is REALLY weird, i have the exact same problem as you, i am starting to develope coli ear only on my left side, i dislocated my left elbow, sprained my left shoulder, and left knee.. right now the only joint i haven't hurt yet is my left ankle. Is good to know i am not alone...Greetins from a jiu jitsu girl in Mexico!

I have also had injuries only on the left of my body. Some one told me that left side injuries are self inflicted and right side injuries are environmental. Sounds crazy but there must be some reason

I have the same exact problem! Look into elhers-danlos syndrome... I have hyper mobility type and I think this problem has something to do with this.... However it doesn't explain why I only get injuried on my left side.
